"Good camera for pictures and high school film students."
23 March 2013
Pros: Great HD Good Pictures Tough Screen Nice amount of manual features Easy access and viewing of what you've taken Built in USB (on the strap) makes putting your things on your computer easy Touch to focus Can take photos and video simultaneously
Cons: LCD can be hard to see in bright sunlight The zoom can really degrade the picture, and make video really shaky Low Light abilities are minimal Depending on your video quality settings, you run out of space fast Manual controls can unfocus the picture
Summary: I bought this product mainly for videotaping in indoor lower light settings. The camcorder we purchased prior to this one leaves the recordings with a green tint when taping indoors in lower light, so we were looking for better quality low light filming. This vidio camera is very light and easy to use. The indoor filming quality is good and color looks great. The software download makes it very easy to edit the clips and transfer the video to a DVD.
I think this is a great product and a wonderful value

Summary: I would first off like to say the camera is great. Not just the value. The value of the camera was only $25 dollars cheaper than best buy, but what best buy dont GIVE you is 32 GB SD card free, a free light, a nice stand for the camera and a few things to clean your camera. I would say what they gave me for free with the camera is at least $50-75 dollars of value and remember I paid $25 less for only the camera than at the store.
Summary: Good value. Easy to use and very compact. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
