Pros Overall, I like the form factor as well as ease of use. For the price ($427 at Circuit City) I was comparing it to the Sony HC32 that was $50 more, I was already spending more than I had planned and one of the deciding factors was the full one year labor
Cons There definately is a bit of motor noise when playing the tape and while the size is nice, the sony is a little more compact.
Pros compact, for occasions where you probably want ever watch the movie anyway, this camcorder is pretty good.
Cons takes very poor digital pictures. tripod is nearly required for operation. overall video quality low compared to my 7 year old high 8 sony cam. software is freeware spindle rack quality
Pros Small and easy to use. I am just upgrading to my first digital. Can't go wrong with this one.
Cons Buy an extra battery or a longer life one if you plan on shooting anything very long.
Pros Turns out, digital camcorders aren't too bad but they aren't very good either. The sound quality is not very good and the video seems a little...hazy. Not terribly, but it's not as clear as my Hi-8 Sony camcorder. Overall, I would say this product is "oka
Cons Poor sound, overall, and not the best video quality I've seen, either. I don't think the camera even came with the software needed to upload the video files to the computer, either.
Pros Fits in hand well, fingers find buttons easily. Buttons not too small. Zoom operation even though slow, is very smooth.
Cons I would have purchased Elura 65 had I known about the wide mode option. Some of the doors for the hidden compartments feel cheaply made.
