This camera is very easy to use! I love the fact that it has a SD Card, so it is easy to plug into your computer. It captures the light very well. I was suprized of how small it is for a HD camera, quality of the picture is fantastic. The reason why I give it 4 stars, is that you have to be pretty far back, to capture a video up close. I'm a skateboarder, and when I film my friends doing their tricks, I have to be about 15 to 20 feet back, to capture their whole body in the picture. Other than that, it is a pretty good camcorder.

My dad wanted a full HD camcorder for around $150, I looked all over and compared several models of compact camcorders before finally settling on this one.

Pros:

- Good quality video, although a tad bit grainy. Really though, it's very much above acceptable.
- Supports up to 16GB SDHC, which is basically a requirement for HD camcorders.
- No lag when paired with a good quality class 10 SDHC card.
- Easy to understand controls.
- Mini-HDMI out, includes a mini-HDMI to full-HDMI cable. Also has a standard-def output (composite, cable included).
- The camera automatically turns on and off when the viewing screen is opened or closed. Also, the viewing screen can turn 270 degrees.
- Standard tripod attachment on the bottom of the camera.

Cons:

- Manual shutter, the shutter doesn't close or open when the camera turns on or off, you have to flip open and close the shutter yourself.
- You HAVE to take out the battery to charge it, there isn't a DC-in anywhere on the camera, and the battery only lasts for about 1h30m on a full charge. This means if you want to record something longer than 1h30m, buy an extra battery and have it handy.

Overall, this camera is an excellent example of "you get what you pay for". You want something better? Spend more money.

We used this camcorder to video our band playing inside a night club. The camera was set up on a tri pod just next to the sound booth. The lighting on stage was really good and and the video looked great! The nice part of this camera is that you dont lose any video quality while zooming. The audio from the camcorder was very distorted and had a "crunchy" sound to it although that has been the case for any camcorder we have used in this type of setting including the very expensive ones. If you want a very good quality camcorder and a great price then this is the one to buy!

Impressive camcorder for the price. Professional looking videos at an affordable price. Very easy to use and built well. SD/SDHC expansion card slot (supports up to 16 GB SDHC Class 6). easily download to your computer for making CD's or DVD's of your favorite moments.
