ahhhhh...not so much.

By

I am a coach and using this camera to show players our games films. In doing so, I have to rewind frequently and replay a certain few seconds. The functions on this camera for doing so are so painfully slow and time consuming. Also, there is a big chance of skipping to the beginning of a scene instead of rewinding if you don't have a very steady hand. Ultimately, the buttons for FF & RW just aren't user friendly.

Gets the job done

By

from Vancouver, WA  -  Casual User

I purchased this camcorder to create a short documentary video for a class project. I love the size of it and it's very easy to use. The zoom is amazing, but the auto focus can be a bit annoying because sometimes it doesn't focus when you zoom really close. The HD video quality was good enough but the sound recording isn't that great. Overall, though, I am very happy with this camcorder.

I love it and my friends hate that I love it! It is small and lightweight and convenient enough to take everywhere. Seriously, who doesn't love having every embarrassing moment documented for eternity?

Seems to be a good machine

It was a Christmass present for my wife. She shot a lot of Christmass video with it and I managed to lose it all trying to run it on to DVD. I still have not figured out how to do that.
