"Love this camcorder!!"4.5 starson by N0Namer
Pros: Great sound quality, video && image quality, low light conditions not grainy.
Cons: Expensive, short battery life.
Summary: I love this camcorder! For so long I've been trying to find one that was great in low light, had a mic jack, had great sound quality, etc. I never expected the sound quality to be so good just by itself!
I am into music, so when I record I want it to be accurate and sound realistic. When I recorded and playbacked my music, everything sounded exactly how I heard it in real life.
The touchscreen is easy to use and there are a lot of features and color options. When recording in low light, I found it the best to use an option "Shade". It makes everything look very clear... more than the automatic setting. I also noticed that there's barely any grain when recording in low light. I recently bought 2 other camcorders but returned them because they were awfully grainy (one from Kodak and another from Panasonic).
The only thing that I don't like is the battery life. I wish they could've made it longer... around 3 1/2 to 4 hours at least. Instead it lasts around 2 hours.
Also, the camcorder was expensive but worth it in the end. I wanted something cheaper, but this is an upgraded version of the HF20. I am mostly using this camcorder for youtube recording, movies, etc. So i'm happy that this is HD and the quality is excellent. The low light & sound quality is one of the top reasons I chose to keep this. Hope this helped!
