Top positive review
I've researched it.. just buy this one already

I'm not going to lie I probably spent more hours researching for my first family video camera than I'll ever spend shooting movies on this one, but it's exactly what I had hoped for. We first used it for our wedding and reception(low light and loud music) and it blew away my expectations for what a home movie camera could look and sound like. HD quality on this completely surpasses memories I've converted to digital format about 30 S-VHS tapes my parents recorded our home movies (with another 50 to go.) I've spent quite a bit of time converting and compressing raw video-which is why I went with the HD format and not 4K; files are too big and take a lot of power to process. I'm not an expert but I learned a lot from my research. If you want some assurance from someone who has already spent the time to make sure you're getting your money's worth, I recommend you hit buy now and save the time.
Zoom-Good but stabilization and quality is great!
Low Light Scenes- better than you will ever care about as long as you capture the moment and this camera will.
-Microphone is good and can handle a wide range and good at blocking winds.
wish it had a place for a neck strap loop, buts lightweight and fits in your hand well.
