The camera produces HD video...very clear and good sound.

I figured since it was priced much higher and seemed to have better features, that it should be a better cam.

Picture blurs if you move the cam when it's on... Snow in low light condition.

Though this camera has some flaws, the fact that it costs a fraction of other cameras and still does what I need it to do is all I can ask

Pros:
-crisp video quality(especially with outside lighting).I put it on my 47in 1080p hd tv and the picture was very crisp.
-High Def(1080p, 1080i, 720p) with other built in options for smaller videos to be put on internet.
10mp digital camera(with built in flash)
-small and light with a sleek design but still sturdy feeling.
-built in LED light
-long-lasting rechargeable battery
-touch screen
-easy to transfer to computer (usb cord)
-affordable price (I got mine "like new" on this site for under $200)
-lots of storage space options-I got the "Transcend 16 GB Class 6 SDHC Flash Memory Card" (no more tapes to transfer to my computer)

Cons:
-the zoom is flawed (zooms too fast and is takes a while to auto focus)
-the video can get a bit grainy in low light even with the LED on. Its just not bright enough to overcome my downstairs basement lighting.

-10mp photo camera-blurry digital picture even using a flash(needs a better stabilizer in it) Though when I used a tri-pod the pictures were much sharper. Still not as good as my 7mp Kodak.
-You do have to be familiar with video editing software. The software that came with the camera was ok, but I use "Sony Vegas Pro" and it works great for hd editing and formatting.

In my opinion, this camera is a great middle of the road family camera that has the high end video quality without the high end price. Perfect for capturing all my family memories.

I have over a thousand things that i like about this camera, but I would like to keep this review short and to the point.

First off, I would like to be the first person to point out that it has an awesome slow motion feature that can be accessed through the menu that lets you change the resolution. It has the ability to record at 240 FPS, which in laymen terms means the footage is slowed down 10x slower than real life when slowed down to normal movie speed (24 fps). This camera would be just another normal consumer grade HD camera if it didn't have that slow motion feature.

On one of the other reviews, someone said that there was an annoying lens defect that the camera had. He is right, but it only shows up when you are recording in a very bright place (like outside, and the sun is in the picture). I only noticed it in the first couple of months i've had this camera, but you get used to it since its not that noticeable.

For people concerned with the picture quality, don't worry, it is just perfect! I bought a 16GB class 10 SD card for this camera, and the HD looks amazing. All the colors look natural. The reds are redder, the greens are greener. You will notice the difference from your old camera once you see the footage this camera takes.

I have dropped this camera about 4 times now, cause i'm very clumsy, and it doesn't even have a scratch on it. It is the most durable camera i have ever used. The last camera that I broke (2 cameras ago) was one of those dvd cameras. I dropped it about 3 feet from the ground (while I was picking it up) and it never turned on again! I have dropped this camera while I was riding bikes with my friend, and it was on. It just was out of focus when I picked it up. Best camera EVER!

This is a good camera for the price...not great. It takes good video in HD and the playback from the camera directly to the HDTV is awesome. Basic functions on the camera are very good and easy to use. It will serve our needs for the next year or two and still give us quality video at a reasonable price.

Upside: Price, ease of use, video quality, good battery, video light, touchscreen, HDMI connection included, size and weight of the camera are fantastic

Things to consider:

-Video is recorded in .MOV which is Apple's Quicktime program. If you have a MAC, I imagine his is perfect. But converting these files over to a PC is a daunting task - don't let anybody tell you different. That being said, it could be the same for any HD camera (at least on the low price end). The files in HD are HUGE and take time to convert to windows media and it takes hours to burn a DVD for even a 30 minute video.
-Like others have said, it records in HD but when you transfer it to disc, you will lose the HD quality. The only way to watch recoded video in HD is to plug the camera into the TV.
-What is up with the zoom? It says 50x but I don't think I am getting 10x and I can't find anything in the user guide or on the menu screen to improve this.
-Anti-shake still shakes! When recording in HD, it is difficult not to pick up camera shake even with the anti-shake function activated. A tripod is a must have for this camera - especially if you zoom in.
-A remote would be nice for this camera since you end up watching a lot of the video directly from the camera to get the best quality.
-Software is not nearly as good as the camera. I gave up on it and used my own.
