Great Product

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a must have camcorder for ghost hunting. I am the Co-Founder of Lawrence County Ghost Hunters and I have to say this thing is amazing for what I use it for. The only thing is the picture quality. It doesn't have the best quality but its not bad either.

Order the extra battery

  • Summary: Overall it is a good product. The battery life is not the greatest so you will want to purchase a bigger battery. The stabilization feature is wonderful. Takes pretty good pictures. Takes some getting used to if you are used to using the older, clunkier recorders.

Great product for home videos

D. G. Holden, Amazon

  • Summary: Ease of use on this camcorder is awesome! Nothing fancy to the settings - which make it very nice to pull out of the box and start using. Download softward is pretty user friendly, and 30GB capacity is great - I have been able to record 3-4 of my son's football games on the HD before even getting...

Good for the cost

  • Summary: I've had this camera for the first few weeks and I am still in the process of learning how to use it. However there are a few things I can comment on. First, it is correct that the absence of optical vewfinder is a real problem with sunlit bright scenes: you just cannot see what you are filming, the...

A great camera for a great price

Allen Shepard, Amazon
9 September 2008
  • Summary: I've only been using my camcorder for a few weeks now, but I really love it. It is very light-weight and user friendly. One of the best features, and one of the most important to me, was the generous onboard memory. I can shoot hours and hours of video without messing with cards, tapes, or discs.

Decent, but not as good as expected

G. Lee "TexCali", Amazon
31 August 2008
  • Summary: After much research trying to decide between this one (the price/value performer) and spending about $350 more on the JVC Everio (HiDef), I chose this one for the price and for the user-friendly touch screen panel. I haven't purchased a video camera in over 6 yrs.

NICE CAMERA, EASY TO USE

T. Akers, Amazon
6 August 2008
  • Summary: Bought this camcorder to take on cruise. Realy liked the compact size and ease of use. When I got it home it was a breeze to down load and burn a DVD but that is all the softwear allows you to do, no special effects.The screen in sunlight is useless and with no view finder sometimes you are just...

Excellent Product

Ashish, Amazon
5 August 2008
  • Summary: My main motivation for buying this product had been the brand name and also since I didn't want to spend on recurring costs like tape/DVDs. After many trips shooting with this handycam, the video quality has been consistently amazing.

  • Summary: Bought this for our Summer vacation and I am happy with the price. Cheapest price from Electronic Expo and delivery took about 1 week or so. This is our first handycam and overall we're happy with the performance. Well, it's our first experience though.

Good for price, but grainy still pics

J. Adams, Amazon
10 July 2008
  • Summary: This is a great little camera for the price, but be forewarned: it will not replace your digital still camera. The maximum setting for stills is 640 x 480. This is one of the lowest settings on my Canon A540.
