"Really good camcorder but..."3.5 starson by elcalvo
Pros: more pro features than the others magnesium body ir nigth shoot
Cons: bad handle desing no controls in it,no manual for the audio control the mic it's to close from the body
Summary: I own this cam for a wile now and the look it's grate, the feeling it's great, the lcd size it's awesome, picture quality exellent,in the dark it's not that good so if you are a nigth filmaker choose the sony vx-2100 perform beter in the nigth.
all the butons are made out of ruber to minimise noise so when you press them they are silents, that's great. I mean not like the sony vx-2100 that had sliding buttons they produse anoying souns when you usethem during the recording procces,the zoom ring its grat grippie and with a nice damping,the only thing that I don't like about this camcorder it's the handle desing it's unconftable and you don't have acces to any control like zoom or start stop well they did one start stop buton over the lent but it's uncofortable to reach and when you press it the cam moves sideways so it's useless in the other hand sony and canon had plenity of controlls on he handle and with rigth because on this size of camcorders you are going to use the handle all the time,the ergos on the camcorder aren't that good it's a little bit uncomfortable and the mic it's to close from the lent so if you are pickie with the soun you're goin to find unwanted souns from the motor zoom etc .ok now you now what now without paying 2500$ so from now and on it's your dessecion
