Summary: If you buy any other camcorder (except canon - some model) you are wasting your money. Even a $4000 cam does not give as good results as this one. Absolutely crisp picture even in low light. Same colors. Clear sound appears to be full range and pleasant. Coverage angle wider than all other camcorders. Quick start and stop. works with remote. 4:3 and 16:9 mode (video and photo) in just one button click on the back. Long battery life, quick charge.
Summary: This was an absolute brilliant camcorder! It was so easy to use and very compact to fit perfectly in my hand. The steady shot was an awesome feature, you can literally be walking and the camera would be so smooth. I also love the smile detection to capture photos as it was recording. There are so many features, but overall the best part was the 160gb internal memory. You'll never have to purchase recording media, and it will save you money.
Summary: excellent, esto es genial, La camera est excellente. I bought it to record weddings and birthdays. this is all I needed. La compre para grabar bodas y cumpleaños. Es perfecta para grabar a un nivel professional. j'adore cet appareil photo.
Summary: I have used this camcorder for a year and a half. This is a great camcorder! The picture is awesome and the stabilizer is very effective. The camcorder has an incrediable zoom lense on it. The focus works very quick too. The only negative that I could mention about this camcorder is the lengthy delay accessing the hard drive to review media. It seems to think for a decent period of time before switching over to media view mode.
Summary: THIS IS AN AWESOME CAMCORDER AND EXCELLENT VALUE. I STARTED TO GIVE IT 4 STARS BECAUSE OF THE PLACEMENT OF THE AC CHARGER ON THE CAMERA AND I MUST SAY THAT THE QUALITY OF THE PHOTOS COULD BE BETTER. BUT WHEN I LOOK AT ALL THE OTHER FEATURES LIKE HD, IMAGE STABILIZATION WHILE RECORDING, SNAPPING PICS WHILE RECORDING, TOUCH SCREEN CONTROLS AND BECAUSE THEY WERE DISCONTINUING IT, I GOT IT BRAND NEW FOR $455.00, I HAVE TO GIVE IT 5 STARS.
Summary: very nice and compact; however, reading the screen menu is a little difficult - print very small. Would be nice to have a computer interface that would allow using the menu options from the computer. Great picture. Needed to add a blu-tooth mic to pick up voice at a distance.
If you learn this camera, it is an awesome value!!

Summary: First, this camera does have a learning curve to achieve maximum quality. But for the price (I purchased new for $700), its a great value. 160 GB HD gives hours and hours of footage. LCD screen is a bit small but very clear. I was disappointed in this camera initially until I discovered the HD FX setting! It makes a world of difference, believe me.
