Summary: Absolutely fantastic picture quality, due to high quality lens and 3ccd sensor. Many manual controls to help achieve great video. Sound is very good and it is stereo. Files are easy to edit in video editor programs. The stabilization works excellent, although I still recommend a tripod for best results. Takes a while to get used to the handling, it is easier to use two hands if you want to zoom smoothly.
Summary: Actually I bought this as a backup to my other identical camera. It is a perfect SD camera, sharp images, many options, 3 mp stills, small flash, fits in a very small place and the batteries are small and last up to a hour. I have recommended it to friends and they are happy also.
Summary: For me, this is the best (and one of the few) options for someone which needs a pocket combination of camcorder and photo camera. More recent models are for sure smaller and offer better video performance, but lack the photo quality of this device. If a good 3.2Mp camera is OK for you, and like me is tired of carrying 2 devices (camcorder and photo camera) on your vacation or sport event, please consider this camcorder.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Excelent video quality, Great Picture Quality, Pocket size, Simple Controls
Summary: Great camera- we use this as a family camera- both for video and for still shots. It is easy to shoot with and to switch back and forth. The software with it is not written very clearly- in particular the downloading instructions for the video.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: I'm surprise this camcorder isn't more popular. Its the perfect camcorder for capturing and sharing family moments. Bottom line - this camcorder has me recording, sharing, and archiving family videos because it makes it so easy.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls
Summary: I'm using this product for documenting my travels. Photo quality during day is excellent. Photo quality at night, though, is another story. Flash levels are higher than usual digital cameras when taking stills, but flash level can be adjusted. All of my night shots are blurry unless I hold down the button lightly for a few seconds...and this is a pain to have to do every time I'm taking a picture at night.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Picture Quality
Summary: I don't like to take video for many reasons. You end up with a lot of bad scenes in the middle of the tape, if you review the tape you have to forward to the point where you can begin taping again and it takes far to long to transfer the video to the PC if you want to burn it to DVD. This camcorder solves all those problems.
