"Outdoor Camcorder Only"2.0 starson by Brian JK
Pros: Long Record Time, Decent outdoor Quality on clear bright days.
Cons: Battery Life, Low Light Quality
Summary: After reading the other reviews about this camcorder I decided to try it since the best comment stated it was good if set correctly. Quality outside it sunny AZ was pretty good, but the moment I went inside the quality degraded so fast it was actually surprising. The picture became fuzzy and almost pixilated. Even with all the indoor lights on, the picture quality was not acceptable. I would compare the indoor, low light, quality to something you saw on first generation camcorders. The same quality was experienced outside when the sun was setting. The camcorder really needs a bright area to function. The idea of hard drive recording is right on the money, but wait until they improve the quality/technology. I returned this camera and purchased another one rated much higher (even in low light) for hundreds less. Save your money and purchase another type or wait for the second or third generation Hard Drive camcorder. And yes the 1hr battery is a waste on a 10hr camera.
