Nice Quality but Much Wind Noise and no View Finder or Mic/Speaker Ability

Summary: It is a good hard drive high def camcorder if you are not concerned about a lot of wind noise as the mic picks up wind noise very loudly.

Summary: Awesome HD camcorder its smaller than my other ones but its just as good if not better. The touch sceen works great and it is easy to use.

You cannot record at night with this camera or in areas with very little light but other than that its a perfect camcorder!
