Summary: Easy to use and handle. My family used this one for making family HD-Movie and they are reliable, except that we need another pack of battery. Taking pictures are also in good quality, easy to switch between picture and video. A good value for money. At first the seller suggested and let me try and compare between this one and other brands of the same price and this one wins all in every aspect.
Excerpt: I was able to edit it using ULEAD Videostudio because that is the only software application that I have that works with it. My major problem is the audio. All my footages are choppy and unclear. I don’t know why. We tried several times but we’re so unlucky. Now instead of bringing it, I just used te video feauture of my Nikon CoolPix Digital camera. I know now why my brother-in-law decided to give it up.
Excerpt: However, since not everyone can chuck money out the window on a really good camera you can buy this camera (obviously) but keep in mind one thing: If you don’t have at least an HD-Ready television then you should definitely get a 1080p, if you do have such a TV then it’s not absolutely necessary, but advisable (to get the best picture possible). All in all not the best camera on the market, and I would not really suggest this purchase for another very important reason.
Excerpt: And if you are looking for a camcorder that can stabilize your images then this one can do that for you. That was one thing that I needed to be able to do when it came to taking pictures. I think for $1000 this camcorder is decent. It lives up to it’s price and that is why I have put this camcorder into my collection. It to me, works better as a camcorder than it does a camera . But that’s just my opinion!
