Summary: I bought this camera originally for my wife's business. She wanted to start filming short YouTube videos for her profession. We've also used to for all manner of personal videos from family time in the back yard to my daughter's high school volleyball games. Now I'm no professional.
Summary: Excellent - as advertised! Item was new, performs as expected. Battery life is not as long as i had hoped, but i bought extended life replacements. Also bought additional SD cards for added storage. Beware of buying batteries and storage from China. I learned the hard way.
Summary: Had this camera a few days and so far I'm in love. I have a Nikon 18 - 55mm lens on it at the moment and it takes higher quality stills than my actual Nikon camera. Not to mention the HD video doesn't have the 12 minute cap. This camera performs great in ever situation I've put it in so far.
Great camera for those who know what they are getting.

Summary: The important thing to realize with a camera like this is what you are buying. This is a camera that nicely straddles high level consumer handy cams and entry level pro work. If you were ever shooting video on a DSLR and thought of how cool it would be to have that sensor in a video camera, that is...
Summary: Even though the camcorder has APS-C Sensor, it does not allow to take video and photos simultenously. You have to play the captured video, then pause it and then take photo which has resolution of only 3 Mega pixels.
Summary: Ok i get my package on time. everything in the package was on place. Also all is made in china because is price is not expensive, but if you want quality and professional stuff better to buy for more expensive price.
Summary: The product came only a few days after I had ordered it, the service was very fast. I have not used the cleaning cloth yet. Also I have not used filter kit yet because I usually white balance the camera myself. The SD card and card reader both work very well.
Summary: Have been using this camera since March of 2012. This is a great camera and is capable of meeting all my needs but does have some limitations. The reason I selected this camera was to find a good camera for film and photo and this camera does them both great.
