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 gave this camcorder as gift to my son and he got very happy. Someday latter I needed to record one event and borrowed from him and I got amazed for the quality of video and sound. Camcorder is compact, easy to use, easy to carry to everywhere and fit in small areas of luggage when traveling. Record length is up to the size of the SD card used and battery life is also very good. You can record more than two hours in uninterrupted mode. It is a great camera.
Summary: Très bon achat, ce produit avec son fort grossissement me convient parfaitement. Sa petite taille permet de l'emmener partout dans la nature, randonnée, ski, raquettes, de filmer les oiseaux et animaux en gros plan. Un mot: excellent.
Summary: I bought this specifically for my sons to record for YouTube. They love it! (search for Cummins Air to find my son John Wygant and his videos - the newer ones will be frmo this video) I choose this based on having hi-def video and low cost. In addition, all the reviews on various sites - here, epinions, elsewhere - they ALL claimed all pro's and very few con's. I mean it's a great and inexpensive camera.
Summary: I have been Panasonic SDR-S26 SD Camcorder (Black) for about 6 months and am very happy with it. In my view it is the best deal for the price. PROS 1. Ease of use: for most of the situation you do not need to make/change any setting, just power on and start shooting. 2. Good for both indoor and outdoor recordings. 3. I like its zoom mic feature, the mic sensitivity increases with zoom. 4. 70x Optical zoom. You can easily zoom without any sound in recording.
I am most impressed. This camera is an excellent choice for families.

Summary: I will try to be brief. This camera turned out be more than I expected as far as satisfaction with the pictures and ease of use. My grandchildren have already made hours of video. They only needed to learn a couple of controls and to be sure the recording is off when not shooting. The battery life is incredible considering the compact size and cost ($15) for the battery. There's no way to give a definitive running time for the battery.
