Summary: Battery doesn't last long, even if is not in use you wont be able to turn on the camcorder again until gets charge. I am not impressed with picture quality and color, I think my iPhone makes better videos.
Summary: My husband loved the camcorder. Nine months after buying it we took it on a trip and it was working fine then turned it off and a few minutes later turned it back on and the screen had nothing but lines across it, it could play back the videos he took but, could no longer record anything.
Summary: The picture quality was amazing. very light weight and easy to use. was excellent in low light applications. something I worried about, being used to artificial lighting. For the price, its a bargain. Had the chance to compare it with other brands while on vacation in europe. We did upgrade to the VW-VBT190 battery for longer life. This worked out very well.
Summary: I got this as my first ever cam corder. I wanted and HD camera that would allow me to record makeup and nail tutorials for YouTube. I was running on a low budjet and when I bought this I thought it would be a good camara to start with. Now I would say this is a camara I recomend to everyone who is either beginning or who has some experience with recording but is looking to save money. The camera is very small, and compact which is very convinient.
Summary: My last vid cam died on me after about two years, so I decided that if I purchase another, then I should get the refurbished one. So far it does a superb job, can't complain one bit. The picture quality is picture perfect, great color. When using the zoom, it's best to have a tripod. The anti shake feature works great as long as you don't make any sudden movements. It didn't come with a manual, but did download one from the net.
