Summary: I read a lot of reviews before I bought this and the notion that the light weight makes it feel cheap is silly. The camera does a really nice job, although not as well in poor lighting. For the price though it is a great buy. The one other thing is that it does not have a connection for an external microphone which is too bad because that would be a nice improvement.
