Summary: Nice picture but there are issues. TINY operating button is exasperating, always going to an undesired option. Video is NOT easy to upload to Windows 7 and Nero does not seem to help. Have yet been unable to sync sound with video. Auto white balance is not good for my preferences.
Summary: This camera is full of trade-offs: great features which are often crippled by poor implementation. I very nearly returned it, but ultimately it is getting the job done: taking pictures and videos of my 2 year-old and newborn for online viewing by friends and family.
Summary: Pros: * Small, fits well in hand * Controls easy to reach and use * Good battery life * Close viewfinder to "sleep," wakes quickly upon reopening * Uses standard (and cheap!) SD cards for recording * Decent zoom range; gentle use of the zoom toggle allows for very gradual zooming if desired.
Paid $329 Its an excellent camcorder for this price

Summary: Pros: 1. Excellent photos(useful as a digital camera) 2. Good value for the money( $329 - dollar three two nine) Cons: 1. Poor auto-focus. 2. Very poor image stabilization. If I zoom an object or a person > 25ft, the image shakes and anything over 50ft, it shakes and jerks really hard.
Summary: I paid $1200 for my first SONY Hi8 camcorder in 1994 and I bought this camcorder based on its price tag and stellar hardware specifications like the 1080p at 60fps, big 1/2.5" CMOS sensor, a relatively fast lens f2.0-f2.8 and reviews commending its good low-light performance.
Not very happy with it... autofocus problems ruins lot of footage

Summary: Pros: - Size and weight - Handy controls - Nice zoom - Battery life - iFrame makes it Mac compatible and friendly (it was my main reason to buy it) Cons: - Autofocus problems means lots of ruined footage (this happened during a ski trip) - Microphone sensitivity is less than adequate - Photos are...
Summary: Why is it so hard to find a low priced, high quality HD camcorder? So many manufacturers say their camcorders are "HD" but I've found out that doesn't mean "high quality" - this Sanyo VPC FH1A was mediocre at best in terms of video quality.
