Excerpt: This camera is great with all the features it has built into it, however, if you plan to use this camera in indoor conditions you will be disappointed with the quality.

Excerpt: I bought this to replace my 8 years old Canon HG10. It's got pretty good review on @, so I pulled the trigger when B&H put it on sale. However, it didn't live up the expectation. I used it for about 10 days, all family videos in different lightings.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
Cons: Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light, Poor Still Image
Summary: I got this in an open box deal at the local B&M store for a BIG bargain. It has surpassed and exceeded ALL of my expectations. The projector feature works perfectly, even when projecting from an external device.
Excerpt: Accepts 64gb Micro SDXC memory cards which is really convenient. This camcorder is very small yet it takes very sharp videos. The image stabilizer is amazing. I haven't take photos so I can't comment on that.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
