Summary: Terrific value, Intuitive features, simple file transfer and excellent software bundle make this a great average consumer video camera. Transferring movies right to DVD via PC is as simple as I've ever seen.
Summary: It's just fine. Pro: A zillion hours of storage, good-enough battery. Pro: It comes with a cradle. Con: No other way to interface the harddrive to your computer, no quickie-cable. Pro: It uses a hard drive Con: Using the MPEG 2 files in a video editor is hard.
Quality good, but not great. However, a pleasure to use - very easy to learn.

Summary: Initially, I was very pleased, until using it for a while. I noticed a white spec on the viewing screen. After carefully looking at it, it was a problem inside the lens, not a dead pixel, so the white spec showed up on all dark video and photos. Other Negatives: -Terrible in low-light conditions.
Summary: I think the yukon's review on the focus and noisy problems was true. It can not hold focus on close-ups. And like Rajendra Bansi said in the review "There is indeed some Zoom lens noise picked up by the speaker when no other sound is present". Low light recoding is not good at all.
Summary: I bought the Camcorder with some hesitation knowing that this is Toshiba's first Hard Drive Camcorder and that they are not noted for making camcorders. My investigation indicated that it basically has Canon lens and optics with the Hard Drive from Toshiba.
Summary: I'm looking for a HDD camcorder. The choices are this one, JVC or Sony. The Toshiba seems to have more functions and more storage than the others. This camera has also received very good reviews on Amazon. Better than JVC or Sony. The quesiton is: Why is no other major retailer selling it?
Summary: I have been very satisfied with the results I have gotten from this camera. I wanted something that would allow me to record business and training presentations indoors in moderately lit rooms.
Conclusion: La Toshiba GigaShot GSC R60 es una espectacular camara por el precio que piden. Su capacidad de 60 gigas te sobra para filmar horas y horas y horas en maxima calidad. El sonido es alucinante y tiene una autonomia formidable.
Pros: 60 gigas...te cansas de filmar! y el ser disco rigido te permite olvidarte de los cassettes, de los DVDs, te olvidas de todo y tan solo filmas cuando quieras! Ademas, no tenes que andar buscando el track o adelantando...son archivos que los ves todos juntos en ventanitas, etc! Un flash! :), Podes...
Cons: El viewfinder (pantallita) podria ser algo mas grande., Cuando filmas y hay poca luz, tiene a verse algo oscuro....y si lo pasas al modo Nocturno...ilumina a full pero la imagen no es fantastica., Por ahora hay pocos accesorios disponibles (aunque la camara lo tiene casi todo!) ;)
