This is the first used item I purchased via Amazon. I was happy to find that it is truly in "very good" condition and has all the features of a new one for about $100.00 less. The 40 times zoom is incredible. Of course, it is hard to hold still at full zoom without a tripod or bracing yourself or the camcorder against something solid. The
image stabilization helps, but can't stop all movement. I wanted this model camcorder because it captures in 720P rather than 1080(though files can be up-converted to 1080). The files are smaller(less than 1/2 of 1080)for storage and processing, yet provide HD impact that many won't differentiate from 1080. It will also capture in regular
quality for easy recording to a DVD. The camcorder was received quickly with everything but the Media Browser3 software. After an email to the seller, they located and sent the software soon after. I'm pleased with this vendor
as well as the camcorder.
