Summary: The battery came with a bit of charge,and it came with a high speed sdhc 8 gb sad card!easy to set up,easy to learn how to use(got it 3 hours ago and I already know what each button does)has a GREAT 3 hour battery,and has a hand strap,unlike some cameras.All in all,THIS CAMCORDER IS GREAT!!
Summary: This was great when it was brand new. However, it feels very outdated now compared to other digital camcorders. I would not purchase one NEW at this point. A used one might still be worth it though.
Summary: While An improvement over my last camera, the version of this camera I received has this buzz on Audio. you'll probably need a dedicated Mic to get anything decent, but the audio jack on the back is either not for a mic, or requires a specific model that I am not aware of.
