"Great camera for video"4.5 starson by dave1973
Pros: easy to use menu, hand held, uses flash memory, good battery life
Cons: included software not good for advanced editing
Summary: I was looking for a camcorder that uses flash memory (SD & SDHC to be specific), good battery life, and good in various levels of light. This camera overall meets those needs for me. The menu on the camera is easy to use, and easy to make changes to settings. It has good battery life, which surprised me, when a digital camera I own under the same brand didn't.
My only dislike is the software that comes with the camera. It doesn't have the editing features I'm looking for. It's only good for making it easier to convert videos to YouTube's .flv format. I'm looking for software that will edit .mpeg4 format. Haven't found it yet.
Regardless, I'm keeping this camera as it's overall a good camera.
