"Software for image file handling is not friendly"2.5 starson by WeiQinAu
Pros: Image is clear on computer
Cons: Image is not clear enough on 1080p TV. It is very inconvenient to delete files on the camcorder after the image files are transfered to computer.
Summary: It automatically extract pictures from video. The auto catched pictures mixing with video make you hard to handle the video. Huge files in the small screen make difficulty for identifying what is the basic, with are drived from video, and full up the small screen. I wonder if the auto extraction function can be turn off.
You can't just select files for deleting. You have to play a video, then touch the garbage can on the screen. The screen asks you delete "this image" or "multiple images". After touching the "multiple images", a lot of files (video and pictures) show up; it is a huge work to select the files one-by-one, it is hard, too, due to the upper left corner small select box, plus a huge amount of auto catched pictures.
If you select "delete files after transfering" on computer, it only delete the video files. However, each video file comes with 2 small size auxiliary files, and these two auxiliary files can't be deleted automatically with the video files from computer. These files leaving on camcorder cause big confusion and make the files handling more difficulty. The can be deleted unless formatting the storage (memory).
The camcorder response is slow. After press the recording button, screen still show STBY (standby, in green). It mis-leads you think that "I didn't press the recording button effectively, then press again. Actually, the first time press does activate the recording. it needs to take a while to show REC (in red). The 2nd time press does bring the camcorder back to STBY. No recording happening. It caused me several time to miss important recording!
The zoom control stick is not that good to control. Can't be easy to get very smooth control.
