Summary: Very good lowlight, I tried focusing in the dark though at it's full 10x distance and sadly it couldn't focus in dark though lit areas, and there was plenty to see so it wasn't asking for the impossible. I wish camcorders had manual focus rings.
Summary: This camera work very well for 15 months but after using a run down battery the camera started malfunctioning. The only way I can use it is by holding the power button in while taking photos or video. If not push in, the screen is blank or very broken up.
Summary: I bought this almost a year ago. Since then I have used it for recording an array of shots including home videos and live band performances. When I bought it the price was almost half of what it is now. However, this camera doesn't fail to deliver.
Summary: I really loved this camera. Great video, great picture and lots of features but last month after owning it for more than 6 months the flash stopped working. Now I am not able to select any of the flash mode, it always stuck at no flash mode.
Summary: I've been pleased with this camera (Xacti HD1010) In bright light, picture quality is terrific -- much better than any of the several Canon DV cameras I've owned. In dim light it's not as good, but still at least the equal of the older DV cameras.
Camera may be great, but over 200 pages of operating instructions?!

Summary: First off, I did not use the camera after purchase, so I can't comment as to whether it is a good camcorder. Why did I send right back after opening the box? Because the instruction manual is over 200 pages!! I thought the idea of the Xacti was to be a simple and easy to use pocket size camcorder.
Summary: While I was editing some 20 year old VHS tapes to DVD I was thinking how great it was to have someone that a video cam to capture these old family moments and look back at them, hence my search for a video camera.
Summary: I have been researching for weeks for a HD portable camera. I went to local B&M stores such as Best Buy and Frys Electronics to get a feel for the different cameras. I decided on the Xacti HD1010. First, I was really skeptical about the HD claim of the device.
