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.
Excerpt: I'm using it for some professional purposes at work and so far easy to use, compact, lightweight and I like the projector although it took me a couple of tries to figure it out. Of course it would have helped had I read the book first.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: Surprised at the quality of the video this records. Sound is also better than expected. LCD screen is nice and image stabilization works good. Easy to set up the manual controls. Lots of options but still easy to navigate the menus. Feels good in-use.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD
Excerpt: I'm pretty impressed with this camera so far. I use it in a low light setting in the church at which I work. I've been very impressed with the quality of video even when lighting can and should be an issue.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
Excerpt: I use this camera every day after I purchased it. The zoom is just long enough. The Optical Stabilization is amazing. The lens is literally floating in there. 5.1 surround sound enables you to hear every single voice coming from around the room. Great prize - great camera.
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom

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.
