"no editing software included!?!"3.0 starson by optikulgamer
Pros: the camera is small and compact. i like the lcd display - it's very clear and bright. it has hdmi, component and rca outputs. yiu can burn high definition videos to regular dvd recordable discs (bu
Cons: no regular viewfinder, the colors are not very accurate - images appear a bit washed out. NO EDITING SOFTWARE INCLUDED!
Summary: i think this camera is overpriced for it's features and performance. the biggest disappointment is the lack of hd editing software. there is a simple software program that allows you to burn dvds, but as far as transitions, trimming and effects; you will have a hard time creating any very creative videos in hd. the images are very sharp if captured in bright lighting. when shooting inside, the quality of the images isn't that great. also, i notice a backlighting problem. overall, it's a good cam and i'm going to keep it; but it's very pricey for what it delivers.
