it's ok

Hugo 77, Amazon
16 March 2008
  • Summary: I've had this camera for a couple of years now-- it's zoom function leaves something to be desired, and I'd recommend NOT zooming during a shot. In fact, for adequate depth of field you're better off not zooming at all.

Memories lost!

  • Summary: We got this camera a few months ago and never used until we finally had some special occassions to record. We were able to record two and on my daughter's 8th birthday party it came up with the DEW error and we tried very hard to get it back to normal.

The DEW is trouble

A. Kidd "azkid", Amazon
22 August 2005
  • Summary: If not for the DEW function I would give the camera five stars. Unfortunately when the DEW signal comes on there is no camera and there is no override for this sensor. We wouldn't anticipate a problem with moisture living in Arizona but it's been nothing but problems after the first year.

A nice camcorder, but a bit buggy at times...

J. Beams "JB", Amazon
4 January 2004
  • Summary: This camcorder seems to work fairly well doing its main task (recording video), but mine seems to have a few bugs. I'm not sure if something is wrong with it or that's just the way it is. When trying to set options in the menu, the menu will sometimes disappear without warning.
