Summary: We had bought this camera 5 years ago and due to an accident it broke. We were very satisfied with the ease of use and picture quality. Since we already had all the accessories plus a tape to CD recorder it was easier to get the same model than buy all different technology. We were so glad to find one on Amazon. We took it on vacation and it works great.
Summary: This camera has lots of manual controls that are great. It is a little hard to navigate the menu for the manual controls, but it will prevent novices from accidentally setting the focus and exposure incorrectly. Overall, it is a great camera!
Summary: The reason I am giving only 3 stars is...refer the neagtive factors I have listed below....if you don't want that feature...this is a 5 star product for you then. + Good quality + easy to use + reliable + handling - Converting the mini DV to CD (The process is very very slow and the converted DVD/Cd format takes tons of your hard drive space (like 10 GB for 1 hr of video) - Problem is you will have to convert the video to DVD or CD if you want to store it for lets say...
Summary: This camcorder is very compact, but still enough weight to hold steady. I like the simplicity of the menu and layout, while keeping nice features like a microphone input, usb/firewire, and built in light. It should be noted however that the light in not very powerful. No hotshoe, or shoe of any kind so you have to get creative with your miking and lighting but for the price you can't beat this camcorder.
Summary: This is a great camcorder. I am impressed with the quality and richness of the colors. The colors look just like they should be outdoors-pretty much EXACT. It has a great design, and has all the features, including a MICROPHONE INPUT!!! Most camcorders now don't have those, except for expensive models. Overall this is an awesome camcorder and being honest I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good quality camcorders with sharp, rich colors.
Summary: For this camcorder not to be the one my wife wanted, it has turned out to be the best camera she has used! The easy of operation is 4 star, the quality of picture on the TV is 4 star. We have owned other movie cameras over the years and this one we really like! I would gladly recommend this camcorder to everyone!!
Summary: Hey there! The camera is great; however, after taking it on a trip with me all my video turned out badly because there appears to be a problem with the head. I won't totally blame this on the seller, but will say that it was quite dissapointing to have a bad camera immediately after purchasing what I thought was a totally refurbed unit.
Summary: I have only used this camera a couple times so far, but I absolutely love it. Some controls are poorly laid out and not real convenient but the picture quality and other features far outweigh this small nuisance. I still rate it 5stars!
Summary: What I like about this product is that it's a camcorder and digital camera! It's light and fit in my hand. It's easy to operate and easy to hook up to my computer. I can record and take pictures at the same time. I recommend this product as a great gift for anyone.
