"cheap and easy. hmmmm......"4.0 starson by yopaulyyo
Pros: The zoom is fanatastic! 60x! The HD is 60 gigs! It's small, and easy to use!
Cons: Because it is easy to use it is a little simplistic but it's cheap and easy! No view finder, OEM battery is very small. Not at all matched with a 60 gb harddrive.
Summary: Over all this HDD videocam isn't loaded with features but small enough to put in your coat pocket. With an after market battery (4500 ma available) you can shoot 7 hours of video without spare batteries or recording media. I find that very cool.
