"Great Camera"3.5 starson by synapses11
Pros: Ease of Use
Cons: Indoor Video Quality
Summary: I just got this camera 3 days ago, I have shot about 30 mins of video. I first started in my living room around dusk time with the lights on. The quality is so-so. The 2nd time was at an indoor pool with lots of windows and would say the quality was much better. This is the first camcorder I have owned and am pleased so far.The audio is pretty good I think they over hype the 5.1 which does work natively but it's far too simple of an on-board mic to get good quality 5.1. I am very pleased about how easy it was to setup and how the menus are quite straight forward and simple. If you like tons of options to fine tune, I wouldn't get this camera but if you're like me who wants something straight forward with middle of the road quality it's a good camera.
