Summary: I purchased this camera for my 14 year old daughter who is an aspiring "film maker" and I wanted something of good quality but not overly expensive given her age and inexperience. This camera fulfilled both. I was surprised by the quality at such a good price, It comes with everything you need to get started right away...even came with a kit to keep the screen and lens clean!
Summary: I'm pretty patient when it comes to waiting for packages so that wasn't such a big deal that I had to wait maybe a week or two to get it but when I first got the package and opened it and it was pretty lightweight. I knew the tripod was going to be pretty small but I didn't expected to be as small as it was when I opened it. I didn't like that at all. the camera itself is really high-quality well not really, but it's a pretty good high-quality camcorder for its size.
Summary: So far I took it on a vacation and it is very practical and worked very well for us. Don't expect the components in the bundle to be very high quality but the price still justified going this route so I don't regret it. It takes good movies and the pictures are nice also. I am happy with the purchase. I am going to use it to film my son's football games this season and we'll see how it performs. Based on what I've seen I suspect it will be fine for that as well.
Summary: Bought this for school (graduate class that requires mock counseling sessions) and it is a nice camera. It does what I need it to do and even worked well recording my niece's choir concert. It does work well and I do not regret buying it.
Summary: The HD video is good, the size is good, the optical zoom ratio is amazing. Plan on maybe editing some sound onto a real quiet scene, as the zoom button makes enough noise to intrude--probably indicative of sensitive mic which is a good thing if you can leave the zoom alone. The resolution of the still images is poor by today's Point-And-Shoot camera standards, but probably as advertised in the literature.
