Summary: I ordered this because it was barely more than the cost of the camera by itself, and it was coming with a few handy items. Two batteries, that's worth a bit, and a 32GB card, I can go all day with that. Plus the mics, they aren't worth much, but I could use some extras. I presume if you're considering this, you've already researched the camera. It's not bad.
Summary: This camcorder is ideally suited for use by a professional; by that I mean someone who has had much experience and thrives on manual control of a video camera mounted on a tripod. For handheld use, this camera has some issues (for me anyway). Firstly, it's front heavy with the supplied lens and therefore badly balanced and causes hand ache within a few minutes.
