Summary: I purchased this unit on ebay used but it is an EXCELLENT camera for the money...plenty of bang for the buck and connect and use with a pc is a snap with windows movie maker...audio and video are easily transferred to pc. Add a memory card and POW...you got distance on regular pic camera too!!!
Summary: Great little camera. When you add the device to connect the camera to a tripod, it covers the flip door to the AC port. Kindof a bummer, since the tiny little battery only lasts 1 1/2 hours. The eject button on this camera sticks a little, but all in all, it did a great job on my first backup video I was running with it. Picture/Sound/audio was great. Thank you so much!
Summary: I previously had one just like it; but it got stolen on vacation. I was used to the filming on this camera, editing, transferring to permanent CD. I was not ready for the updated version of camcorders and I was very pleased to find the PV-GS59 available.
