Summary: Yes, iso 400 and above looks like mud, lens is not wide enough, image stabilization is bad and blur's your video, yes you can hear zoom in/out noise, camera zoom is not sensitive, menus sucks, lens cap is a poor desing.
Summary: I don't know much about camcorders (this is my first), but I like this one. It seems to have plenty of manual settings. It actually works pretty well indoors (in low light). At first, I was picking up a lot of noise. I adjusted the ISO setting to darken the image.
Summary: The product comes with pros and cons. Pros -Great Price -So small and compact -HD Video Cons -Low Light Performance is terrible -Zoom noise -Quality of still photos was not great at all Over all a great camera that will give you great bang for your buck
Great for it's porability - Performance of a 6yr old camcorder.

Summary: Our Main goal was to replace an older and much larger/heavier miniDV camcorder that was just a pain to lug around. This fits easily in a jacket pocket and with an 8gb card you can shoot 3 hrs of 720P video in the next to highest quality. I also got two extra batteries with it.
Pros: Size and weight are it's biggest selling points. The quality of the video in well lit situations is extremely good. Records in x.264 compliand .mp4 video files. These can be played in quicktime directly and if you load the Commbined Community Codec pack you can actually bring them into windows Mo...
Cons: The perfomace of the camera functions are on par with he 6yr old JVC moniDV camcorder I traded it for. I imagine these will improv quickly and I intend to keep updateing to a newer model avery couple of years. It will stop recording at 4gb and recording has to be started again. I'd like that be a...
Great Outdoors, low light - not so great, but very portable

Summary: Things i love about this camera - size: it is truly a pocket video cam, i can take it everywhere. - quick start: i can have it out of my pocket filming in 3 seconds, so you don't miss any shots - video quality outside is superb, as good as you could ever want (when viewed on my 46" LCD HDTV) - the...
Summary: I've had this camera for a couple weeks now and I really like it! I was looking for a pocket HD camcorder in the $200-$300 price range, and this was by far the best one I tried. I compared it directly with Flip's new pocket HD camera, the Mino HD, and the HD700 is superior in so many ways.
Summary: We bought this about a year ago, and have used it a lot since then. We have an infant and a toddler, so having a video camera so easy to carry around and use on the spot is invaluable. I've been impressed with the video quality, long battery life, and smoothness(i.e.
Summary: I bought this camera after reading through most of the reviews here, so was aware of the limited field of view. Even then, it is still an annoyannce. I still find myself having to step back to use the camcorder - still overestimating the field of view after 5 months of use.
Gain great portability at the expense of some quality.

Summary: I recently purchased this camera to use for recording all those family moments. I was previously using a Panasonic PV-GS250, a hand-held 3CCD Mini-DV camcorder. I was drawn to this model for several reasons: True 720p video quality, pocketable portability, digital media (no more "real-time"...
