Pros I don't know about what happened to the highly negative reviewer - that wasn't my experience at all with this camera. I shot about an hour in "Auto" and "SP" (that's standard play) mode indoors and out. It's very easy to use. It was not noisy, picks up bi
Cons Can't think of any - especially at this price.
Summary Sure, if I had spent a lot more I'd have gotten more bells and whistles but it's a real good camcorder and it didn't cost a lot. I'd buy another, and I'm not a newbe to photography. I've been taking pictures all over the world since the late 1960's and I know how to be anal, but have learned to avoid that. Makes me happier. Thanks for reading this and enjoy this good buy, 'cause I am.
Pros This camcorder films 1080p 2.34 megapixels and the microphone must be awesome as you can hear the inside motor better then anything else. It's the cheapest HD camcorder of this type I've seen so far.
Cons Not expected quality in a 1080p TV screen. Colors are not good either, lens also no good, battery time is "NOT THAT BAD". Also the zoom is not that bad.
Summary Not expected quality. In a 1080p TV the image is not so good (it's 2.34 megapixels, below than the minimum for a good quality in 1080p which is from 3mp to 4 mp).
If you want a good image quality, don't buy this camera. It seems everything has a poor quality. When filming inside door, the video is toooooo grainy and you can't see anything else (must be because of it's lens quality).
It seems too cheap at first look but too expensive when you know it. Wouldn't ever buy again, just if it was below $70.
