Summary: We bought the camera to use in our church during worship services. We have been well pleased as to ease of use and the quality of picture. If we had it to do over again we would buy the same camera.
Great to have HD Cameras like this on this budget.

Summary: This is an amazing camera, I use in different professional types of events and works great. Nice wide angle and zoom 20x G Series Lens. Very nice Built quality, someone said "Big enough for people take you serious as a professional videographer and small enough to take anywhere, relatively light weight. Has many professional features that you need, ND Filters, XLR Audio imputs, very nice LCD monitor and viewfinder.
Summary: I recently bought this camera after using a variety of tape based cameras. Several of which were capable of 1080i. None of them match to the quality and user-friendliness of this. Despite the fact that I have not fully tested the audio capabilities of the camera, the video quality is great. I generally shoot for short documentaries, short films, and events ranging from lectures to music groups.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
