Summary: as long as you are shooting indoors, its fine. the microphone is a joke, so be sure to buy a separate microphone, (i reccomend using a zoom h2n as a recording platform and the rode videomic pro as a mic.
Summary: Great price for a compact HD camcorder. Just get a really big and high level SD card and you'll be happy. Great for someone who doesn't need all the bells and whistles. Had it since 2009 and it still runs like a champ.
Summary: I have owned this Camcorder for over a year now and just love it, a great entry level HD video camera. The Touch focus is a feature i really love. Also check out the spring rain video i have uploaded shot at 720p.
Summary: My son did all his research and decided this was the camera for him that within the price range he could afford. He was not disappointed when he finally got it in the mail and has gone on to purchasing different lenses for it.
