Summary: I bought this camcorder for the external mic capabilities. Unfortunately I didn't do enough research on that particular feature. If you need a baseline entry level camcorder, with limited audio capabilities then this is for you. If you need an external mic, then buy something else.
Summary: In my experience, unless you are doing purely close-up video blogging (web cam style), this camera will be useless to you. The killer is the very poor autofocus. It will lose focus whenever you film someone in motion.

Pros: -Cheap at under 200 -small, lightweight -LCD is decent Cons: -worthless image stabilization (its digital, not optical, and its...
