Summary: Works great for my primary use, which is video-ing school concerts and gymnastics meets. These are often in low light and you cannot get close. The zoom and low light ability of the camera do a good job. Very light and compact. Con- have to use their software to read the recordings; had trouble installing their software for months (error "need to install .Net 4.0...", which was installed). Would be 5* except for this.

Summary: Hello Readers, Initially i got SD-40 for thanksgiving 2011 at costco for a deal, I am not much impressed with the clarity of the videos when we record indoor. Then i found SD-90 at amazon, Reviews said this camcorder was excellent. Then i looked for a good deal. Finally a couple of days before Christmas i found deal at amazon, then i ordered SD90 from AMAZON. Finally i got SD90K just before Christmas.
Summary: It's a really nice camcorder. Small, lightweight. My only gripe so far is that I have stubby fingers and have a hard time operating it one-handed. It just doesn't fit comfortably in my hand and let me easily touch the record or zoom functions.
Summary: I had bought another regular digital camera designed for photos which also makes videos, but had problems with noise from the optical zoom and poor focus at distance and conversion of videos for Youtube. This camera has an excellent optical zoom (which also makes slight noise), is easy to operate, with great editing software included, making uploading to Youtube a snap. It also takes pictures.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder along with a 64gb Komputerbay class 10 sdxc card, LG Electronics WH12LS30 12X Blu-ray SATA Writer Drive - WH12LS30K, and a 25ct spindle of phillips 25gb blu-ray discs. I bought this all for Christmas for the family, as the movies my jvc everio 30gb hard drive sd camcorder makes look too crappy on my 65 inch mitsubishi dlp tv. The first thing I noticed is that it is slightly smaller and much lighter than my JVC camcorder.
Summary: Advantages: all the advantages of SD60 to apply this, plus the filters can be screwed to whom it is necessary, remove progressive scan, an opportunity to put the shoe (included) and well it what you want, you can shoot 3D film, if, in addition to purchase price as a good converter 3d camera +) small size and ease of use Disadvantages: sometimes, but less than the SD60 in the room loses its color on the machine when changing the plan, with different lighting (on manual...
