Laser Touch Operation

Touch-sensitive scroll bar and buttons for smooth operation (except for GZ-MS110). Allows zooming and recording using either the Laser Touch or standard zoom lever and REC button. Browsing through indexes and menu selection is easier than ever. Since you don't touch the LCD screen itself, you can keep the screen clean and fingerprint-free.
Advanced Image Stabilizer

Great improvement on New Everio is its anti-shake performance. A new technology called Advanced Image Stabilizer expands the effective area at wide angle to 4 times that of 2009 models, delivering powerful compensation for camera shake. You can enjoy stable results even if you're trotting alongside your subject.
Super LoLux

Low light performance is one of the key factors for quality video. New Everio's Super LoLux ensures superior sensitivity to low light. To provide this, High Definition models (selected) are equipped with a Back-illuminated CMOS sensor that allows intake of more light while Standard Definition models offer a large 1/6" high-sensitivity CCD. The result is clear images with precise colors even in low light. No worry while indoors or in dark situations.

Time Lapse REC
Various unique shooting functions are equipped on New Everio. Time-Lapse REC records one frame at a time at set intervals (1sec.–80sec.). So you can watch an hour-long movement in just a short amount of time when played back. It's great when you want to observe an event that takes place over a long period of time, or to record unique-looking scenes in a creative way.
Auto REC

Another unique function is Auto REC. When a subject enters the detecting area and the luminance changes, recording starts automatically. Recording continues as long as there is movement within the area and automatically stops after 5 seconds of no movement. You can use it like a surveillance camera, or to observe something. Discover new ways to use the camera.
Everio MediaBrowser - Integrated PC Software Included

All Everio models come with high-value software that provides everything from file playback, management, as well as easy sharing functions, within a single application. Its calendar type graphical user interface displays thumbnail images of your recordings, superimposed on the date they were taken.

Likes: Camera size and compactness, Auto Record function, Time Lapse Recording, HD quality, Zoom, Sound quality, image stabilization, 8GB built in memory with additional SD Slot

Dislikes: Camera menu is cumbersome, included Everio Software, no remote control function, photo snapshot feature, no integrated lens cover.

Purchased this for my daughter, needed something simple to use but good quality. Tried the FLIP-UltraHD, due to not having a image stabilizer took it back and purchased the JVC HM320. This unit has 8GB built in, nice addition as right out of the box you have 40 mins of HD recording, more if you record at lower resolutions. The Zoom is incredible, up to about 150 you get good quality, above that it gets really grainy and is useless, there are three options you can set for the default zoom functions when recording video, 20X optical.. gives always great quality, 80x Digital, and 200x Digital. Recommend setting to 80x Digital, this gets you great zoom, but limits the zoom function to prevent getting into poor quality. The Image Stabilization is ok, but you still need to be steady when filming especially when zoomed in. Also the un-zoomed view has a very narrow range which makes indoor shooting a bit tricky, which maybe the reason they offer a wide-angle conversion lens. Videos can be displayed directly to PC via USB, directly to TV using AV cable, Component Cable(not included), MiniHD cable (not included), all of which give excellent results .. with miniHD, and AV cable.
Some of the dislikes; I wish that it utilized a built an integrated lens cover, as the one that it comes with does not come with any mechanism to attach the lens cover and probably will be the first thing lost. The camera menu is less than intuitive, but is still decent.

I got this camcorder for Christmas a while back. I was very glad to find Amazon had reduced the price more than half its retail price! I think this camcorder is excellent for people just wanting to document their experiences in hi-def. Here's a list of pro's and cons about the camcorder:

PROS:
-Light weight
-Captures gorgeous 1080p video in good light
-Tremendous zoom- Fine up to 80x... after that it gets very hard to focus; goes up to 200x didgital
-Compact and lightweight
-Easy to use
-Great 37mm threads for pro lenses
-Accepts powerful, long lasting batteries... the VG-121 Data Battery to be exact
-BEASTLY AUDIO. It sounds so great, wind cut really helps!

CONS:
-The low-light performance deserves a "meh". It gets fairly grainy after dark, but good in other situations
-Paint scratches after a while; only minor cosmetic damages, still looks good after a slide on the concrete... :\
-The editing software it comes with is crap. Its impossible to do a thing with it.
-Is not easy to upload videos to other editing softwares*... see below to see how!
-Manual lens cap will be the first thing lost, i know it.
-A bit small for those of you with large hands.

*You can get the videos into another format easily. YOU HAVE TO FORMAT THE VIDEO BEFORE YOU SHOOT. Any pre-shot clips cannot be formatted without converting software. Anyways, if you go to the main menu, scroll down all the way, and select MEDIA SETTINGS, then scroll down this menu to FORMAT BUILT-IN MEM. or FORMAT SD CARD, you can format it differently so that you are able to upload your clips to Windows Movie Maker, Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere 7, 8,or 9, or iMovie.

This camera was a gift to my son and his new wife. They didn't play with it until they were on their honeymoom. That's not the best time to learn. However, the camera is very intuitive and performed excellently.

The camera is very small, but fits nicely in the hand. Like any other camera, if you zoom out too far, you really should use a tripod.

Lots of the controls are on the viewing screen which is really cool.

The sound quality is fine. Low light doesn't provide the same great quality as good light does, but it is fine also. The battery life is shorter than advertised, but that's true for any camera. My son was able to shoot most of a day at Disney World with one battery.

If I needed a new camera, I would gladly buy this one.

we bought this camera on black friday for an early christmas present as we were going to cancun and wanted to take it with us. The camera is light weight and fits in the palm of your hand. We bought a 32 GB class 10 SD card and it gave us 500 minutes of filming memory in HD. We got home a week before Christmas and I wanted to make a DVD of our trip with video and pictures. We found out that our filming was very novice. You need to move the camera pretty slow when panning, or doing anything for that matter. When you move it slow, or keep it focussed on one general object, the quality is very good. We were very impressed with the high quality of filming when we did that. When we moved it too fast, it was hard to make out what the camera was recording. I don't think that's the camera's fault though, I think it was novice recording. I'm pretty sure any camera would do the same. We didn't like how the camera didn't come with a string attached to the lens cap, it made it annoying to have to find a place to put it and not forget it. The microphone is great, it picks up the voices pretty well. We didn't have any problems going from low light to high light. It transitioned pretty quickly and focussed pretty quick. The zoom on this thing isn't great, and you need to hold the camera very steady when you are completely zoomed in, but it is adequate. Overall, we love the camera, it helped us capture so many great memories from our vacation, we're really excited to continue using it!
