"Amazed at how bad this camcorder is."1.0 starson by summerhum
Pros: HD at a low cost.
Cons: Unreliable mechanics. Image quality is poor.
Summary: The lens shutter would sometimes simply not open. Low light was awful. Toggling between tungsten and normal ambient light was difficult. The battery kept on a constant drain, regardless if the power was off or if it were in a hibernate mode. Sometimes I would have to hit the record button a number of times to get it to start recording. I brought mine back to the store that I bought it. I think I am going to buy a SD camcorder from another manufacturer. I found that HD is an overrated feature that is more of a "like-to-have".
