After a little reading it's great


personal use with family and friends


I like mine


I use it almost every sunday to record church services, I also used it to make a short movie of a local farm show ( just got it and was still learning how to use it) and it worked great.I still have not learned how to use all the thing it can do. I use it quite often with a remote mic and use head phones. I just wish I could use a remote controil with it, would make it handyer to use( that is why I gave it 4 stars) I like my Canon video camera so much I am thinking of purchasing another one this summer.
