"A great camcorder, with a few easily fixable flaws"4.5 starson by awong01
Pros: The 1080 HD is outstanding, the picture quality through HDMI is amazing. The fact it can take still pictures is a plus. Picture stabilization and the low light capability are decent.
Cons: The sound is a bit off, but the use of a microphone fixes that. The actual device itself is bulky and difficult to hold. The zoom makes the quality of the picture significantly drop. No internal memory is excusable
Summary: I eventualy bought a tripod and a microphone to go with this purchase, after that it became much easier to get the video I wanted. My 1GB cards really didn't work well for lengthy recordings, so I eventually bought a 8GB SDHC card. Now I love this product, I am always amazed at the picture quality.
