Summary: The best feature of this cam is - its a 'palmcorder'. Fits neatly into your palm. Comes with easily adjustable palm wraps. The video & audio qualities are good, although certainly not the best. One notable feature is the 'Photoshot' option. While filming a video, if you want to freeze a scene, just click this & the image is stored onto SD card. SD card comes quit handy to transfer pics to laptop or computer & makes room for expandability.
Summary: Great camcorder. Just wondered if this is a common problem though as its not cheap to repair.
Pros: Excellent video playback, really clear and bright colours when playing back on TV. Easy to use, just keep it on Auto and away you go.
Cons: Nothing, apart from the fact that after 3 years of ownership and not a huge amount of usage it has stopped working. Seems theres a fault with the processor which prevents it from being able to record anything. I can still play back recordings on it. Really disappointed that its gone wrong so soon.
Summary: Can we first get something off my chest about a lot of ratings given to equiment on this site (and almost all others). This review is for a camcorder. So its purpose is to faithfully record pictures and sound. Unless it does this well I feel it cannot be given a high rating. I am constantly reading reviews that will say' the pictures and sound are so'so', But it got 'SO many bells and whistles' it gets a rating of 9!
Pros: Excellent picture quality...
Cons: Standard battery life just abou adequate, buy an upgrade.
Summary: This was my first camcorder and I was not disappointed. When i got it it was one of the more expensive amateur models (£450). I have now owned it for over two years, and I have saved some great memories thanks to this device. The best thing about it is its picture quality and stability - it has optical image stabilisation technology which means that tiny motorised gyros within the device are constantly buzzing and counteracting any shaky hands - it is a godsend without...
Summary: I bought this for a month long family holiday through the Canadian Rockies-Vancouver Island-Seattle-Mt St Helens. I bought it on the strength of the Cnet review off the internet for less than £300. I used it constantly for the full month using over 20 tapes in every possible condition. Standing on the Columbia Icesheet at -23oC, to monsoon rains in Vancouver, to a 45oC! shopping trip in Edmonton.
Pros: Quality of the videos is SUPERB!
Cons: Not much... the bottom feed for the SD cards is idiosyncratic!
