Summary: I am using this camera to video soccer games. It is cold in the early seson & the camera does not work well on a tripod, therefore I hold it. I love the light-weight design, the great zoom, the ease of use. Good camer.
Summary: I know that the problem is lighting. But I wish that it had better lighting for indoor shots. My other issue is that I found it confusing at first when I was trying to record, and not realizing it was just "ready" and I hadn't started recording. Missed a lot of stuff before I caught on. That was user error, but I never had that problem with any other video cameras in my past. I've had this one since 2010 and I still love it! Still works great!!
This is a camera you'll want to use and have fun using--buy one!

Summary: I bought this to replace an older tape-type camcorder, and found this at a terrific price. It's not HD but the picture quality is perfectly fine. The 70X zoom is beyond belief. The device is also very light and easy to handle, and transferring video files from the SD card is quick and easy.
