Summary: I love this little handy cam. It's great for family gatherings and events. It gets pretty shaky though when you try to zoom all the way in, even with it on a tripod. We used it one night on a full moon and it was really shaky but what footage we got looked pretty damn cool.
Summary: I've only played with it for a little bit. It is a gift for our daughter in collage. I think it is perfect. Easy to use. Small. Plenty of hard drive. No CDs! I plan to get a memory card just to make it a tad easier to transfer. But it isn't really necessary. Item was used. But in excellent shape.
Summary: Works Great in Linux. Plug it in and it pops up as a hard drive. It's in a Standard MPEG-2 Format. Works well with Kdenlive, Blender, FFMPEG, Totem, Mplayer. You can edit the videos while they are still on the Camera.
Summary: I have had my camera for 18 months and I must be bored because I know most people will be moving on the latest and greatest and not bother reading this review. However!!! I have to mention something that I don't see mentioned in any other reviews.
Summary: I pre-ordered this camera when it first came out and waited anxiously for it to arrive - some 60 days later. I will never, ever buy something that I have not touched and tried myself, ever again. Before we wasted our money on this camera we used a high end Sony Hi8 camera.
