I had purchased this Camera and am currently in the process of returning it to Amazon for a refund. When the camera was on a tripod stationary within a well lit hall it's auto focus feature would focus, then get blurry, focus, and go back and forth throughout the entire recording - defiantly not a feature you would want and no way to disable auto focus either. In addition, if the battery gets low I also discovered you cannot have it plugged in and record at the same time; I have never heard of a camcorder like this. Toshiba advised I upgrade the firmware and I did, this did not help anything. Do not buy this camera, I've seen cameras that perform way better for the price.
