Summary: I bought it as a replacement for my trusty Handy-cam 8.It is very compact and lightweight and slips easily into a coat pocket. The touch screen menu is very easy to use and you can save your favourite settings to a separate folder.The zoom facility is very slick and the video and still pictures are pin sharp.I think that for the money this is an excellent buy. Well worth buying a spare battery.
Summary: Lovely little camera. Smaller than I had anticipated but it works well. I have not yet used it in conjunction with a tv or computer, so here's hoping it lives up to its reputation. Battery life good.
Summary: After carefully studying all the reviews, I purchased this one for my Husband for a Christmas present 2011. He has only recently used it for any length of time while on a trip to Dubrovnik, hence not reviewing it before this date. He got on with it quite well for a first time, and we are very pleased with the results. Obviously it takes time to really get used to this item when you haven't had one before.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Panasonic which I had dropped. It is a stunning, high quality camcorder, don't let the price fool you into thinking it's a cheapo. The clarity is superb, the controls feel positive and although there is nothing fancy about it, it shoots great video. I've had camcorders since 1989 and this one is the best I've owned.
Summary: I love this camcorder. It's small and light and looks good. The picture and sound quality is very good for a camcorder with this price. It also works very well with my PC via the software provided with the camcorder. We're delighted.
Summary: Firstly, I managed to get this camera at a bargain price, due to the fact it was a return through Amazon Warehouse and, frankly, their loss is my gain. I feel I have to address a few of the points I read through and consequently made me worry about my purchase. 1. Lines on playback is simply due to the limitations of what you are playing it back on. My test images worked perfectly on my HD TV and wonderfully when I put it through Pinnacle Studio.

Pros: style, price, pictures and videos, HD quality
Cons: A bit light feels a bit like can damage easily
Summary: Our first camera since one that took tapes so did a bit of research and was not disappointed. The quality is great; video, obviously, but also the microphone in various situations works better than expected. My wife did most of the shooting since we got it and found it easy after a short time understanding the machine.
