Summary: this is an awesome camcorder! I have owned this one for many years and it has been through all types of weather and other situations and it has preformed flawlessly. my only beef is when windows 7 came out and the camcorders software will only work with xp...so I have an old desktop with xp so I can load the video not a huge problem but annoying none the less!!
Summary: I wish I would have gotten my big camcorder from this company. I received the camera and every gadget that goes with it. They even had SD Card/DV mini tape. I was blown away by the quality. I actually begin using this camera when the one I brought from ZoomPoint, Inc wouldn't work. It saved the day!
Summary: We got one of these back in 2006 as a fall back camcorder. I was not expecting anything other than that - boy, was I amazed. I did find, though, that after offloading video from the camcorder, one does have to so some tweeking - that's pretty much standard fare (even with my 'prosumer' stuff). I offload using Pinnacle Studio Pro where I can do extremely fine cutting (almost down to frame level).
Summary: I love the ability to add sound by a microphone or external source. The ability to set my fstop and shutter speed and have a custom white balance is also great. I can compensate on the fly for dark or bright environments, rather than have to try to correct less than perfect lighting with software adjustments. I am very happy with this product and would buy another one.
Summary: These camcorders are very decent for home movies and some small video projects. They're easy to operate and hold in your hand and with a nice lens, you can shoot satisfying footage. I bought this unit as a backup to a camcorder I already use so there would something to fall back to in the event the other camcorder malfunctioned. One thing I really like about this camcorder is the ability to be remote controlled via software when connected to a computer via Firewire.
