Summary: I wasn't paying attention to the zoom (10x) when I ordered this product because I was blind sided by all of the great reviews. I'm not sure if I got a bad camcorder, but I was not satisfied with this purchase. The pictures were horrible and the video recordings were mediocre to say the least.
Summary: I am really impressed with this camera. Great quality! I was researching these for a while and although this is a relatively older camera (over 2 yo) it has higher quality (3 mp) than the current ones unless you spend $$$$ for the high def ones.
Summary: I could not use the software that came with the handicam and I tried five other programs and none of them could access the cams video or controls - It may be possible to link PC and handicam but I don't have a degree in science fiction.
Summary: This is a good camera. The touch screen makes flipping throught menus very easy; instead of fumbling with button combinations, a button will come up telling you what action it will perform if you push it.
