Summary: I bought this thing for the price and the fact that it was HD. You need to remember that just because something shoots in 720p doesn't mean it shoots a good image. The only way I was able to get a decent picture out of this thing was to shoot outside in bright light and even then the image wasn't as...
We were looking forward to it. Now it's in the junk drawer.

Summary: I came away very disappointed in this Camcorder. In fact, I've put it away and gone back to my Canon Powershot. 1. It is horrible in low light conditions, with massive discoloration and noise. Low light means anything that isn't 100% sun.
Low video quality and inferior overall performance

Summary: I needed a replacement for my seven-year old MiniDV camcorder and this one seemed a good deal. At the store it looked very impressive and the specs were decent. I've had the camcorder for about 10 days and have tried every possible setting and feature available.
Summary: On paper, the Xacti HD looks great. The ability to take Video and Photos. Videos are HD quality and use MPEG-4 compression. Videos and photos are stored on standard SD cards, which is very handy. The dual camera is fairly compact. What's not to like...
Summary: I had such high hopes for this camcorder. I prefer this orientation of camera over the more common pistol grip many cheaper camcorders seem to be heading towards. But as soon as I powered this camera on, I was ready to return it... The video quality was horrible.
