Summary: It seems as though there are mixed reviews about this DVD camcorder. Either they loved it or they hated it. From my experience, I thought this camcorder was great. The quality of the video & sound is excellent for this camera. Of course, the video quality is alot better when shooting outside, and you would have to do some tinkering with the settings for indoor filming.
Summary: The Camera is Great I love it. The only thing is It doesn't have a light on it, so in certian lighting conditions the pictures or video comes out dark. but other than that the camera is Great it is very clear and the sound quality is great. The remote makes filming the family or your children's event so easy and convenent. You dont have to worry about shakeing the camera when stopping it while its on the tripod.
Summary: I bought this a week ago. A few things to mention...the indoor recording with low lighting is horrible. DVD's actually look like a movie recorded from the 80's. I opened my blinds and turned all the lights on and it's perfect but that was the middle of the day when the sun was out. There is no night time recording on this. Everything looks dark. I used the DVD -R's. These work fine...you don't have to format it. You do have to finalize the disc..
Summary: Okay, so I bought this camera before reading the reviews, and instantly became scared. When the UPS guy dropped it off, I opened it and charged the battery... I inserted a SD memory card, instantly began recording. I inserted a DVD-RW and recorded, finalized the disc, then popped it into the DVD player and it worked! I put the disc back into the camera and unfinalized and deleted the video... it's great! GREAT picture and GREAT sound. This camera is a definate must have!
Summary: I read several negative reviews before buying. I also found some problems but they were solvable. 1. When the camcorder freezes, simple turning off and on did not reset the machine but removal of battery did. 2. When finalized, the resulting DVD was not playable and the content was not playable. But when it was back to unfinalized, the content was playable and while it was, I copied it to my computer. Overall quality of picture and sound was very good. It was a good buy.
