Excerpt: I am a stay at home mom of 2 young children. I had been using my digital camera to snap quick video clips when the kids do something adorable that I want to cherish! I decided for Mother's Day a couple years ago that I wanted an easy-to-use digital camcorder so that I could capture longer clips and not be confined to the allotment of my digital camera. My requirements were that it be as easy to use as my digital camera, and that it not be too expensive.
Summary: I bought this camcorder as a gift for my Son and Daughter-in-law to take videos of my Grandaughter at DisneyWorld for her second birthday. It takes great footage for the price of the camcorder and interfaces with both Mac and PC software. Small, light and easy to use. Very happy with this item. Great buy. I may order another for my daughter as well.
