I do not confuse the modern equivalent of yesteryear's Super8 with the equipment costing hundreds of thousands of dollars used to create television.

Summary: my old compact c cassett bit the dust after10 years after carefully shopping for the correct camera. found this one it works great with this model you need not to finalize only if you use the +rw format and you use at least or more than 15 min. love it.

Summary: This is my first DVD Camcorder. Pretty neat Camcorder, easy to operate. One thing though - When you are finalizing and LCD screen states (Do not bump or move the Camera while finalizing) that is exacly what it means. I tested it out to see what it would do. It will not finalize correctly so you can play the DVD on you home DVD player.Be careful and set it aside until it is ompletely finished. If you do it correctly and follow the directions, it turns out perfectly.
Summary: Nice camcorder easy to use and makes great videos. This is the typical family based camcorder. It's not for professionals it's made for people who don't have a time and special needs for professional editing. The video quality is excellent and the footage can be edited directly in the camcorder. Nice camcorder for money I would recommend to people who have kids because they can make an enjoy their DVD's instantaneously.
