Summary: I really love this camcorder! Let me start off by saying that I'm visually impaired. I took it with me to watch my two nieces perform in the Nutcracker this last Christmas. The zoom was so close and so crisp that I, for the first time, could see their gorgeous little faces as they danced.
Doesn't Record in HD but Still a Sufficient Camcorder
23 May 2014
Summary: Got a blue version from a friend of mine who moved up to a full HD camcorder. My wife was wanting something to use to record videos with that would replace the old DV cassette Handycam she had.. I added a 16gb SanDisc card to it along with another battery so she can record a lot of video on it.
Summary: Whoever wrote that this was Mac compatible in the Q and A was telling a fib. I plugged it into my Mac last summer and had to reinstall the drivers afterwards. The video type is also not Mac compatible. Otherwise, great camera. Love the features.
Summary: I'm shocked that this camera is still so expensive. HD cameras are not much more now. The video quality on this is ok if you watch it only on the 2" screen on the camera. If you burn it to a dvd to watch on big screen TV, the image resolution is AWFUL.
