"Excellent consumer video camera!"5.0 starson by jwashbur
Pros: The camera is very compact, lightweight, incredible picture quality, fast operations (because of flash based recording), versatile (though proprietary) shoe which allows for various attachments (like the DM-100 directional microphone).
Cons: The viewing screen could be a little bigger. There is no viewfinder for bright, sunny days. However, you can increase the brightness of the screen and purchase a hood that blocks light from the viewing screen. Battery time is a little low.
Summary: I love this camera! I have use it for soccer tournaments, vacation, and a wedding. The camera function is really nice too. Although the megapixels are not high, the shots the camera takes are still very nice.
