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. We purchased a 70 series battery and were much happier. This is one of the trade offs for a really compact camcorder. Overall this is a fine camera with that one exception.
"Great small camcorder with a built in 3mp camera"

Pros: Small, Size, top loading tape, great quality video, 16:9 format.
Cons: Default Battery should have longer run time, mem stick is way too small, zoom stick noise picks up on recording, night vision is very bad, auto-focus is slow especially in low lighiting and high zoom.
