Summary: This model has two functions in one camera. I had one of these for years and decided to buy a second because I loved the features plus you can't find them anymore.Very good unit...I am well satisfied!!!
Summary: Just a few observations first. I read all the reviews I could. Leica has a world wide reputation for superb lenses. 3CCD use. Still selling the same model after 4 years. So I obtained the Panasonic VDR D300. If you read the reviews you will know how good a performance this camera has.
Summary: Here's a sample of what this little camera can do. Believe or not, I shot my daughter's recital from about 30 yards (using the zoom feature, of course) and in a dark auditorium. Notice how the lens picks up all available light and the sound is clear.
Summary: If one takes a fairly good video that needs no editing, a TV presentation is very simple but limited to about 18 minutes, which is the capacity of one side of the mini DVD-RAM disc (which I prefer to use!).
