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.
Pros: Excellent picture quality...
Cons: Standard battery life just abou adequate, buy an upgrade.
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.
Pros: Quality of the videos is SUPERB!
Cons: Not much... the bottom feed for the SD cards is idiosyncratic!
