This is a high quality camera that has not let me down for the past 8 years

Summary: I have used this camera in my work environment for the past 8 years. It is a 3 chip camera that gives excellent color. I use this camera primarily because it is a high quality camera that has a fire wire port. This port is what I use to produce videos for golf lessons on the tee.
Summary: I have owned this camera for several years and for it's size and cost (about $350 when it was a new current model) it has performed well. The viewfinder has been a problem - I broke the screen on one but the other one just faded to black one day and I personally cannot shoot with the eyepiece.
Summary: Although this camcorder has a nice flip-out screen so you can see yourself recording, the battery life isn't the best. Here's my Pros and Cons of this camcorder. Pros: -Great quality -Good picture -Awesome zoom -Flip-out screen -Easy to figure out -Handle/Strap Cons: -Bad battery life.
Summary: I WANTED A CAMERA OR A PLAYER TO TRANSFER MY MINI DV TAPES TO DVDS AND THIS CAME ACROSS, IT IS A GREAT CAMERA IT IS WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR, MY WIFE EVEN PREFERS USING IT TO RECORD NEW VIDEOS OVER THE OLD CAMERA. THE LENS IS GREAT. BIG SCREEN!AND MAKES GOOD QUALITY VIDEOS
I bought this camera several years ago, and it's still works!

Summary: I bought this camera several years ago, and it's still works. I bought this camera for video analysis with my golf and tennis club members and to shoot videos for my academy online. It works great.
Summary: I bought this cam 2 years ago to shoot backyard films and practice some basic video techniques. For that purpose, this is a good buy - given its fairly high quality 3 CCD sensor (gets some good standard video) and manual control functions.
Summary: I am very happy with this camcorder, I recently bought this because I was getting tired of my panasonic pvgs85 and decided to upgrade to this, and I must say it produces very high quality videos for its price, I film a lot of things like skateboarding, movies for projects, family stuff and all that...
