can't say enough good things. I love this movie camera. I can take pictures and do movies. It will run forever and not get over heated. You can have a full screen movie on the wall of the hotel after returning from a trip to Disney World with friends and family. I think we had more fun watching what we had done all day than when we were there. I still haven't had time to read the instructions but simply enough to figure out the basics and start using the minute you remove it from the box. This camera will do so much more than what I have done to this point that I can hardly wait til I have some time to really study all the features. I received a tip from a previous review from amazon and that was to be sure to have the larger battery for trips so you don't have to worry about running out of a charge. The negative to the larger battery is you cant see thru the small viewer. That wasn't a problem as it was easier to see and move with everyone else by using the larger viewer for filming. Never had any problems and filmed all day long. I charged the battery at the hotel that evening and off we went again the next day. Everything was great pictures on the computer came out great movies were great, I love it!!

One of the biggest issues with smart phones and most video cameras is that while the video may be great, the associated audio will be distorted and of poor quality. This is normal for these cameras as they weren't designed to capture audio higher than 90 decibels which is normal for a live band, many times louder. Normal conversation between two people is about 75 decibels. Decibels is the standard measurement of sound. The Sony PJ-790 does a superb job on recording a live band using its "Standard Setting" meaning I simply go in front of the band and started recording. Now that was amazing... no distortion, no clipping. I've yet to use the "manual" level control (it does have one). Someday I will.

The video stabilization capabilities of this camera is the best I have seen. It's interesting that when walking with the camera, with your eyes on the view finder, you will notice some movement on the screen, however it is a very smooth video on play back.

While holding the camera in your hands in full zoom, you will notice that the camera attempts to hold the view if you are a little shakey. This is normal as if you are as good as most of us you can keep the view from jerking as though jumping from view to view. Simple fix...would be to use a tripod and stop drinking too much coffee (joke). You can place the camera on the dash of your car and watch how nice and steady the video is. See my video: [...]

This would be the very best camera you can use to take your family videos and pictures of the kids. The low lux and night shooting mode will allow you to take videos where most cameras can't. Imagine having superb videos of your children for their graduation parties.

Yes, I would recommend you buying this camera..

The camera is very well built ..image quality fantastic. My only complaint is the view finder; like most who have commented, it's useless. Other than that I can recommend this camera wholeheartedly..

Pros: Chose this product for excellent optics and sound. Lightweight, easy to operate once you figure out the menus. Works well with Adobe Premier Elements. Excellent wind noise reduction. Excellent color saturation. Excellent motion shake control. I will use this to improve over all video quality versus a DSLR. Kit included two larger batteries and a SD card.

Cons: Needs a shoulder strap, bought one in after market.
Time to store a video/photo file onto the built-in memory can take a while for very high quality shots.
Menus are difficult to read in bright sunlight.

One thing I can say is I'm no pro but I wanted the best camcorder I could get before getting into the pro cams . This is by far the best cam I have owned I am still learning the things this can do . I see some comments saying the extras are just cheap junk but for free extras they work they are not top of the line but everything given will work for me the only thing is the little tripod I won't use it for this camcorder but it will work for my GoPros . I had ordered from another vender when I gathered all the money for this cam it was $300 less than everyone else (I have been watching this cam for few months) and it bothered me after I ordered it their amazon rating was good so I did a google search on the company and wow very shady things this company was doing . So after canceling the order I did the same search on Beach and they where up in the 90% .
Thank You Beach I will order from you agin
