Summary: You just know that something which brands itself as having an '800x zoom' and 'nightshot plus' is a result of zealous marketing aimed at people who always go for the snappy terms and big numbers to impress their friends.
Summary: Bought this - a first camcorder - in December 2006. It is an excellent device. Picture quality on hq is very good, but the still images are disappointingly grainy. We have connected it to a Sony HD recorder with ease. The LCD screen and controls are a technophobe's dream. Very pleased.
Summary: If you want to point and shoot this is a great camcorder. So easy to use, and great results. Impressed with the low light level shooting, and steady cam features. Comes with a battery that when fully charged has about 3 hours life, so we may be upgrading that.
Excerpt: This small handy digital camcorder is a point-and-shoot model offering a number of great technologies such as Green/blue screen, Stabilization, light capture technology and touchscreen editing as well as a powerful zoom in/out, All-Weather body design.
Pros: slim, waterproof camera and offers antishake
