Not bad, but needs improvement

Summary: I bought this camera after reading lot of reviews. This is the first video camera that I have bought. Few things which PV-DV910 lacks is that it does not come with any software so as to edit the Digital Video in the PC, no firewire cables - even though it has IEEE1394 port for transfer. Eventhough it says 300x digital zoom, the system does not go beyond 36x. The performance is very poor in low lighting. Out door in normal sunlight, it is great.
Summary: This camera boasts 380 lines res but they "forget" to say that it is interlaced. That means that each frame has 190 lines of resolution. This is the standard for TV. Printing 190 lines image is almost worse than sketching by hand! When you pause your VCR you are actually looking at 2 frames (190+190=380 lines). This is great for video.
