Summary: I work with all sorts of cameras being a film student but for conventions or any other event, unless it's a wedding or any other budgeted project, i don't really need an HD camera. Since HD camera's were invented, everyone has it in their heads that SD is a crappy resolution.
Summary: This is a very good camcorder! It installs a free editing software on your computer, it can tweak and add and do so many cool things! I love the time lapse, its awesome! 65x zoom is AMAZING! You can even take pictures! Adjustable strap too! It has a sleek design and is well made!
Summary: I bought this camera for the price but have returned it because of the poor picture quality and the broken lens cover. I have kids in sports so I took it along to test it out on action shots. I used a 16GB Class 4 SDHC card. The results were poor.
Appaling still picture and video quality with way too sensitive microphone

Summary: I tried really hard to find a way to get quality video out of this camera, but, unfortunately the images are absolutely terrible. This is true of both the still images and video at the highest resolution setting. Even the cheapest cell phone cameras can produce better videos.
