Summary: Our camera just like this one broke and we feel it was offered ar at a great price. We also have an underwater housing made only for this camera. It works perfect and we feel it wAS A GREt deal.
Summary: Tuve este camara por año y medio, la usa bastante. Cualquier dia simplemente dejo de funcionar. Se daño el bus de datos que esta al lado del carro del cassete. Se daño simplemente por "mucho uso" o mas bien falta de calidad. Además la camara tiene problemas cuando enfoca fotografias.
Summary: We love this camcorder. Clear crisp video, easy to operate, compact and takes great low light level video. The ability to take still photos with the memory card is an added bonus. The only draw back we have found is the battery that comes with it, the 50 series, doesn't have a very long record time.
Pricey but excellent. You will be proud to own one

Summary: I shopped around for a while before I bought this camera. I checked out many reviews and I have to say, I'm VERY happy with this camera. I wanted something that worked in low light. This was the most important feature I was looking for.
Summary: Like other reviewers, I researched this purchase carefully and was very pleased with the overall performance of this combination video/still camera. Video quality is great. Some issues - buttons are designed for holding the camera eyepiece to the eye.
Summary: after six months of use it's one of the best handycam i ever tried, you just need to get an extra battery and of course a touch screen protector. update: Now it's almost 18 month with this handycam, i love it, its simple so my kids can use it with the easy button and for the professional you still...
