Summary: This is a great camera! I owned one for two years, I filmed everything from weddings, commercials, and hunts and it never let me down. If you get an XLR adapter you can really expand the capabilities of this camcorder.
Summary: Had to convince the boss to keep the camera and he has been nothing but pleased with it. Produced a few TV shows with it and cannot complain. Very adaptable to Final cut pro and iMovie. When received thought it would just be another large paper weight but has surprised me tremendously!!! Seller kept communication with thru a few keeping camera issues but in the long run we use constantly and are very happy.
Summary: You can't argue with results, and I have gotten excellent results with this camera. I shoot in some challenging conditions (the cabs of steam locomotives in less than good weather, for instance) and I have never been let down. Rain, sun, hot, cold, fog, you name it; this camera has been great in the field. The picture is excellent, and the audio holds up its end as well.
