Summary: ... and I still love it. I purchased this camera probably 8 years ago. The purpose at that time was to continue practicing my visual style (I'd graduated from film school a few years prior), and it was more affordable than purchasing a film camera. Video scared me at the time, so even though I'd had a product with so many features, I didn't really utilize them until just a couple of years ago.
Summary: I bought it because I wanted a camcorder that I could use without moving it when filmming. I don´k accept the small ones: it´s difficult to film with them: the video is so jerky including using a called steady shot-
Summary: I bought this camera my birthday and thought it was great. A couple months later, I began to notice that the sound skips, and it would constantly eat tapes. And then it goes on some sort of safety mode where it wont let you do anything on the camera because it thinks it might break itself. And whats up with all that extra space around the flip screen?

Summary: This is an excellent camcorder. I have had mine for a about a year and I have had no problems at all with it. The buttons on top are a little small for large hands but if you buy the optional remote control then you don't have to worry with them. I create digital movies on my computer using the USB cable that was provided. The special effects built into this camcorder work excellent. I have recommended this camcorder to all of my friends.
Summary: I am an aspiring film director and find that with the appropriate settings and tapes, that this camcorder performs famously. It has a lot of bells and whistles, which to some, may not be needed. However, for those of us who enjoy the detailed aspects of film making, it is a good choice. The picture is clear and concise, it loads fast, and so on and so on. The only flaw I would point out, would be that the batery is a little below average.
