Summary: Pros: - 9 different types of quality & resolutions. 480, 720, & 1080 pixels with Normal, Fine, or Super Fine resolutions settings. - 60 fps video recording at all times. This allows you to do 50% smooth slow motion with an editing software. - Great lighting in darker scenes. Though video quality gets a little degraded. - Nice optical image stabilizer. - Can take pictures while video is recording. - 16GB's of internal memory. - SD card slot.
Summary: When I drowned my previous Camcorder at the beach, I realized that paying more does not make any sense. I wanted something simple, reasonably priced, with great videos(1080p), and good pictures(good to view on a computer - ok to print). Found this at Amazon. Have been using this product for last 6 months. For the price this is a great product. It is bit small in my hand, and took some practice to use zoom (it is too sensitive).
Great HD video quality, but not so great audio quality
