Summary: I have had this device for about two years, and I am generally happy with it. The camcorder specs for video resolution are excellent (at least for one that was designed a few years ago). It is small enough to fit in a coat pocket or even a pants pocket of baggy pants, so it can go places another larger camera would be left behind. The digital stills have disappointing quality.
Summary: The main reasons I purchased this camera were its size and its resolution. The camera is small enough to fit in my coat pocket, which means that I have it with me when I need it, and its 3MP resolution means that I can leave my digital camera at home. In fact, this camera has an F1.8 lens, which is as fast as you'll find on most full-size cameras, so it takes decent pictures indoors even without using the flash.
Summary: ...well almost. I've had this camcorder for about one month now, and the performance is incredible given its size. I wont talk much about the (formidable) list of editing/dubbing/effects options available, suffice to say that once shot, you can do all the usual stuff with your footage to enhance it. Instead, I want to talk about the basic quality of the camcorder you'll be spending your many £££'s on. Its video quality is quite simply astounding.
Summary: j'ai acheté en juillet ce camescope. j'en suis ravie. il est très facile d'emploi, tout petit (il tient dans la main sans dépasser), et les images sont d'une qualité extraordinaire. mais, quelques inconvénients en font un camescope que je ne suis pas sûre de recommander : j'ai égaré les cables du camescope (alimentation, transfert sur la tv...), c'est bête, je vous l'accorde, mais c'est ainsi.
Pros: taille très réduite, performance extra et prix correct
