Excerpt: An adjustable cushioned leather grip strap is present on one side, making it suitable to be held comfortably with the right hand. Of course that leaves left-handed people in the lurch, but such is usually the case with just about any of the camcorders available. The grip is comfortable, but the body is not as well-contoured as those in Canon camcorders. At just 330 grams, this is pretty lightweight to handle.
