Summary: I brought this Handycam last week and I got it in good condition. I read the review and many people wrote that they got the wrong item. but I got the right product and Focus camera sent everything new in condition. I did not use this camera but overall it look good. Thanks Amazon and Focus camera.
Summary: Performance of camcorder is excellent. In the bundle, most usable things are memory card, extra battery, battery charger, car charger and card reader. Bag is very small. Tripod stand is just a toy. Was expecting a bigger stand.
Summary: Back in the old days, when I took pictures using film and had them developed at the drugstore, I was disappointed whenever I tried to shoot heavenly blue morning glories. They always came out a hideous purple in the prints.
Summary: I bought this for my Dad because of the floating lens stabilization. Quite remarkable tech. The camera is pretty good. Build could be a little better. For example a lens cover switch would be nice. Compact and takes nice video. Auto focus is good too.
Summary: A major player for supurb quality video...but the image stablization though it works for normal stuff...but I shoot concerts and loud noises cause the Ballanced optical stablization to shake inside the camera even when its secured on a pro tripod..
Summary: I like this camera. I would love it if I could see the view-screen in bright sunlight. The image stabilization system is excellent. The built in microphones work well. The zoom lens reaches out and returns clear images. Using a mono-pod enables me to easily handle the camera.
Summary: Makes excellent video, but I have no idea why it is so ridiculously expensive. You would think such a high price would come with more technical features, such as a pause button, a remote viewfinder that attaches to your glasses, being able to change batteries while recording, detachable hand strap,...
Summary: It's a great camera, but I am still unable to upload video from the camera to my Mac. I had to buy a card reader to do it. The user's guide was no help because it didn't explain exactly how to upload video.
Summary: Purchased this camera on the basis of the Balanced Optical SteadyShot feature. This feature GREATLY improved the ability to handhold the camera and use zoom. I was able to use it to great effect to capture some soccer video of my daughter from across the field.
