Summary: I bought this camcorder and had it for not even 2 weeks. At first I loved it and everything worked great, then the LCD screen started to display a flicker/ interference like the other reviewer mentioned and also after the flickering sometimes the camcorder would refuse to shut off unless I removed the battery. Plus twice it quit being able to zoom in or out..... The flicker was also viewable once i uploaded the videos to my computer also...
Pros: Built-in speakers, Bright display, slow-motion time lapse recording, good zoom capability
Cons: quit working properly within 2 weeks, needs better image stabilization
Summary: I was searching all data on HD camcorders and basically, as most consumers, looking for the range in which I can afford. When I first searched for the camcorders based on performance, features, storage capacity, the ranges came up and above $900+. This was out of my range. Then I went to brands, quality and actual customer reviews and sample videos from consumers. I went to youtube to search for actualy consumer video tests and samples.
