Summary: Every camcorder has pro's and con's. Pro: small size, light weight but sturdy, articulated screen, easy PC transfer of video, good resolution under most lighting conditions indoors and out, surprisingly steady shooting when hand held. Con: no print manual (it's on a CD), no external microphone jack, though tiny mic does a good job, unit takes a little time to focus in indoor room light.
Summary: This is our first video cam. I did lots of research in video cameras before making this purchase and from all I read it seemed to have many features of more expensive models. It's great! Easy to handle and simple to operate even for beginners like us. Another great feature is the fact that we don't have to deal with the inconvenience of tapes or disks. It has a 60 GB hard drive and records directly into the camera to be transfered to your PC.
Summary: My fiance loves our new camcorder. The zoom works great on this camera, he was able to zoom up on our cats whiskers and see small details. It also works great as a camera. It is very lite weight and portable. The battery has lasted at least 8hours. The video quality once hooked up to a television is excellent. The memory is also huge, you can save quite a bit of video and pictures. The download from the camcorder to the computer was very easy.
Summary: This is my 5th camcorder. Compare with vhsc, minidv, this one has best video quality, not to mention 30hrs tapeless storage capacity. I don't agree with the 1st reviewer on the focus, noise problems he/she reported. After using it for a week, I feel I should let others know the good thing about this camcorder. It defininately deserves a 5-star!
