Summary: Because an image worth a thousands words, check out my video I did with the same camera on youtube /watch?v=aa7og434IoM, overall it's a very good camera very solide and have quick response, lots of feature for custom movies, the quality of the image is excellent!
Summary: At first I was in love with this camera. It is lightweight enough to carry comfortably. I used it for still pictures and video on family vacation and was very happy with the results. However, after it was put away for 6 months I cannot record for more than a couple minutes without receiving an error message "buffer overflow" which stops the recording.
Summary: This is my first camcorder. I use it for the usual kinds of things and also for underwater video (with a separate underwater case obviously). I've found the large storage to be great; on an African safari I had plenty of room for video despite some long, long shots. When you're waiting for a hippo to do something interesting, you might wait a long time. This camera had the storage to allow lots of long shots. Ditto underwater sometimes.
Summary: This camera is absolutely stunning. It makes your movies in an amazing hd feature and you have enough memory so you don't have to worry about buying an sd card or ever running out of space. I definitely recommend it!
Great product for every one: from a regular person to a video pro.

Summary: This is really the best camera I know. Image is excellent even walking or moving. It has everything. You forget all the problems of using a video camera: it is just wonderfull. The only thing the I find that could be better is that a special software is needed to get the files from the camera, instead of just use it as a hard drive and the fact that very few software programs have the capability of handling the HD files from this camera.
Cons: Main one is it will turn off by itself after 15 minutes of use, with DATA ERROR on the screen, then restart after a few seconds. After that, it turns off after fewer and fewer minutes, whether using battery or plugged into wall, with drop sensor off.
Summary: This camera provides a great picture in varied lighting conditions. My only complaint is the software. Burning HD movies (which is the point of this camera) is hard to impossible to do with the provided software as well as many different packages you can buy.
Summary: I agree with everything people have written about the excellent video quality of this camera. But I've found two things I don't like: 1) There is no neck strap, nor any way to attach one. I am getting one of those tethers that fastens to the tripod adapter screw, but that's not a very elegant solution, and the camera will dangle upside down. I'm a guy who goes on vacation with a video camera and a DSLR. So I need a way to let go of the video camera while shooting stills.
