Not bad but not great.

  • Pros: Wide lens. Touchscreen easy to use. Viewfinder nice to have. Image stabilization top notch. Compact size and weight.
  • Cons: Lens cover mechanism. Image quality when played back on HDTV not as great as expected. Windcutter helped with wind noise reduction. Occasional infamous blue dot problem. Photos- eh. PMB software limitations. Could use lens hood accessory.

Great machine

  • Summary: I read the reviews and agree with all of them regarding video quality, menu complexity etc. My concerns were the 10X zoom and ease of playback. I bought the camera to record gymnastics and orchestra events to play them back on the spot as feedback for my kids - hard to do with a cassette recorder.

  • Summary: This camera is easy to use and gives excellent results. Storage of 8hrs of HD video on internal memory is more than enough. It is also a very good still camera. I have been using video cameras since 1982 at home and this one has it all
