Great tool, great buy

Summary: This is a little gem. It's small, it's easy to use. It takes great videos and the camera function allows you to get some outstanding action photos. I love it. The only thing more I could ask for might be an external mic jack. Other than that - buy it. My neighbor used it to film wrestling and went right on line and bought a gigashot R-60.
Summary: This is my first camcorder. The price of this product was very reasonable. The only shortage I found so far is it is difficult to control focus when changing the room or during moving. Maybe this is because I am not experienced. The noise mentioned by many people does not trouble me and I think the bad image taken in night may happen in other camcorders not only this band. It's not touch panel so there's no worry about your fat fingers.
Summary: This is an amazing little camera. If you edit your movies on a computer you will LOVE this camera because it stores files on the built in hard disk drive instead of tapes. It can record for more than six (6) hours on the hard disk drive (at the HIGHEST quality setting). The videos are automatically saved as MPG2 files which are recognized by almost all video editing products inclding Adobe Premiere and Adobe Premiere Elements.
Summary: I just graduated from the 1min movies in my digital camera to this camera. I am impressed by the overall functionality of this camera. Positives: 1) Easy to shoot both Movies and Pictures. We think still pictures have their own value. So, taking good pictures was important for us. 2) supports wide screen recording and has 2MB CCD 3) For a HDD camera, I was surprised at the almost non-existent HDD noise.
Excerpt: Over a significant period, the popular Toshiba launches a high quality digital camcorder in the markets. The brand-new Toshiba Gigashot GSC-R30 Digital Camcorder is a revolutionary model with all superior photo features and image quality.
