You don't hold the lens 25 deg lower than subject; the lens stays straight. Just hold the camera in your palm, with zoom control covered by the thumb.

What drew me to this camera (apart from the very low offer price) was its size. I could see that I could ...
Pros: Small, high quality and decent spec
Cons: Lens is angled so you hold this different to any other camcorder .
