"Excellent So Far!!"4.0 starson by jon.beale
Pros: Multiple Features for the price.
Cons: Accessories seem overpriced.
Summary: Recently purchased this camera to use interviewing subjects as part of a dissertation. Immediate impression is that the still and motion capture quality is very good. Based upon the available features, price, and required quality (SD-only) this camera stood out among the competition. The transfer of files to my computer was fairly straight-forward once I installed the trial-use software that came with the camera.
I am not usually a fan of proprietary features (most of the reason I avoid Sony products (e.g. memory stick)) however after reading more on the types of files the camera stores I believe I will have better luck converting the files, editing, and publishing my video.
Since I have only owned a week my review is limited however, I am certainly pleased with the results so far.
