Summary: I have had this video camera for some time now, so I have had time to "feel out" the pros and cons. Pro- The camera is small, light, and has fairly well placed buttons. The video is really nice quality, 1080i (according to another review) is fine for me.
Summary: Overall a nice compact unit that gives good videos outdoors under cloudy conditions. The touch screen doesn't really work while recording; touch it to adjust and camera jiggles. Seemed like a good idea. The on/off button is also on the wrong side for right handers.
Great little camera....seriously tiny little camera but good!

Summary: For the price of this camera you will be hard pressed to find another one of the same quality. My only real complaint with this camera is the size. It is very small unless you have tiny hands. My hands are probably average size and its almost awkward to hold.
Summary: I love this camera! Battery life is great and the video quality is even better. This is the first video camera that I have enjoyed using. This camera is awesome. Plug it into an HD TV and it looks "movie like".
Summary: pros- image stabilizer, face recognition, hd quality, led light for night shooting(not just a "night vision" setting), 8g internal memory, can handle up to an additional 64g card, lightweight, great zoom, takes great stills too (don't have to carry my camera), links to an hd tv/monitor easily.
Just depends on if you want to save information to disk or not

Summary: This camera has an amazing zoom mode. It records video images a lot better than I was expecting at any range. Video looks like it was taken by a much more expensive camera. The only down side for me is that if you want to save the movies you make to DVD+R to share it takes forty forevers to save and...
Summary: I have always had up to date technology and this is no exception. Works in every way I need it. Very user friendly and considering I paid 2,000 dollars for my previous video camera, dishing out 400 for a better one was a non issue. I would recommend this to anyone.
Summary: Shipping was a couple days eairly and tracking by internet was very usefull. This camcorder works great, indoors or out & low light is as good as you can see. The exterior controls as well as the menu were well thought out.
Summary: We purchased this camcorder after doing much research in an effort to find the perfect camcorder to record one of the most special events in our lives - our wedding. We needed something reasonably priced.
