Summary: I am very pleased with this camera. It is everything that I expected it would be. I am a screenwriter(unproductive thus far but working on it), and a hobbyist when it comes to directing and actual videography.

Summary: Yes. I ordered it Chrismas eve and received it within a week with all the parts. I used it to record my daughters HS basketball game and was very pleased with the HD picture quality. I still have to get use to using it, but so far it's a nice upgrade.
... a few surprises that have been impressing me...

Summary: I've this camcorder for a couple of weeks now. I've got it for several functioning reasons (mic input, light, stabilizer...). What blew me away was over the weekend as I videoed a music conference, the camcorder not only videoed it, it also took photos as it videoed. That was simply too HOT!
Summary: I love this camera... except for one minor detail. (Or possible defect?) When I zoom all the way in on something that is black (whether it be an object or shadow) and it is in somewhat low lighting, there is pixel dropout.
Summary: Really enjoy the camera with the bundle. The camera is a step up from the common every day camera and the stabilization is wonderful. I am an independent film maker and would recommend this to documentary and slower style filming.
