This camera is a friend

C. Ozkurt "deluxe", Amazon
21 June 2009
  • 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. But this camera is small, you can hide this camera in your hands and take nice movies with it and no one will notice that you are actually shooting.

Nice 720p camcorder.

Jason Schroeder, Amazon
27 April 2009
  • 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. The video was still plenty bright, and most of the noise was gone. My only complaint with this camcorder is the handling.

Great Outdoors, low light - not so great, but very portable

M. Campie, Amazon

  • 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 dock: you can view directly through the dock and can even view directly from a back up hard drive - so you don't need to burn DVD's to share/store movies - ability to do both...

Great Pocket HD Camcorder

Greg, Amazon
22 December 2008
  • 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. Head to Head on video quality: Excellent video quality in ideal lighting situations.

Not Perfect, but I'm happy with it...

Melodious, Amazon
25 October 2008
  • 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. The video doesn't look shakey even though my hand is notoriously unsteady).

  • Summary: bought this camera when it wa half-off for just one day. great deal. It's true you need to step back far enough to experience the advertised wide-angle. Other than that, no complaints.

"Compact easy to use great quality but with a fatal flaw"

Hewho, CNET
31 August 2008
  • Pros: Compact, intuitive menu and controls, nice build quality, excellent quality video even on 46 inch TV, decent still images, good exposure control, feels balanced in the hand, fits in your pocket.
  • Cons: Framing of still images a little tricky, loose lens cap is a nuisance, still image between each clip is irritating, transferring video to DVD only for those with long life expectancy

What we need

Khanh B. Nguyen "bookdaddy", Amazon
28 August 2008
  • 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. In spite of this, this camera is what we need. We now have many more HD videos than we would otherwise - very convenient to travel with just a single camera for both stills and video.
