"Great video, Great Value, best hdd cam Ive owned."4.0 starson by firestormvideo
Pros: Very good color saturation due to 3ccds (prefer them to sonys cmos sensors). A multitude of connectors including hdmi. Found it easy to transfer the .tod files to my vista workstation and edit in hd with edius neo. It produced beatiful ,crisp videos.
Cons: Dont care for the feature that turns camera off when lcd is shut. Auto-focus is a bit slower than id like. Would recommend using the manual settings as opposed to leaving it in auto.
Summary: This is a very good camcorder at a reasonable price. As far as consumer hd camcorders go, this is as good a image quality ive seen with as many features as you will ever need. It was instantly recognized by my dell inspiron running vista home and transferred files with absolutely no hiccups.
