"Great Recorder, great vision, great price"4.0 starson by mtrodrig84
Pros: Zoom, NightShot, Touchscreen LCD
Cons: Crappy Battery Included, poor internal screen
Summary: This is a great camera. It records the way I want it to, I feel cool because I can touch the LCD screen and it responds, and the 20X zoom lets me see pretty much anything. The sound quality it picks up is also amazing. My only worries are the fact that the LCD is pretty much the only way to operate the menus. Forget about relying on any buttons. Also, I had to get another higher capacity battery, which sticks way out of the back of the camera and keep me from looking in the viewfinder - which is actually broken anyways. Nonetheless, I just pop the DVD into my computer, Rip it, then I can choose which tracks to keep and which to throw away, and I can thereafter make my own personalized DVD from those clips. It really is the same process as a Hard Disk Camcorder, except that you have to rip the data off of a DVD. I use No.1 DVD Ripper to do the job.
