Summary: I checked every feature of camera and it works 5-STARS. The memory card must not be adiquite.Cam shuts off on even the lowest setting. I think it needs a FASTER card. I'll have to buy a FASTER card - 94-MBPS card should have came with camera. I believe this will solve shut down problem.
Summary: I knew I was buying a non HD Cam. Cheap skate I am. So it is that. Good optics but aberations on fast moving or any moving things. Not that bad as most people do not not really notice it and are happy with a quick DVD as apposed to a DVC cam with those nasty horrible tapes that are so short on time...
Summary: For those looking to get a camcorder that is reliable, compact, great for shooting school events and relatively inexpensive, this is the product for you. I'm very pleased so far with the camcorder and how it has performed for me in the time I have had it.
Summary: Very nice Camcorder for the money. It is not HD, however as often as this technology changes now days, I couldn't see spending a ton of money for something that will be obsolete in a couple of years. This camcorder is light weight, compact, and easy to use.
Summary: I purchased this camera for my 12 year old son. So far it works great for him. I wish it had an automatic lens opening instead of having to manually push the button to open it but other than that it has a nice picture quality and it's priced right.
Summary: I really don't understand all the negative feedback about this camcorder. It performs well and is easy to program and use. The layout and options are very simple and it really does provide a variety of options. I have had no problems with video quality when playing video back on my pc or uploading.
Summary: This is a very nice little camcorder. Fairly easy to understand and operate without prior lessons. I would suggest a tripod for action shots, as the picture is pretty wobbly, blurred and uneven when holding in your hands.
Summary: Great product for the price. Easy to use and in the automatic mode one can go from shooting video to taking still shots with the press of a button. Have not put the battery to a real test yet but I'm going to Washington, DC this week to a rally so it will be tested many ways.
