Great HD camera for great price


Picture quality is very to comparable to my Canon HG 20. Got it to shoot additional camera angles for interviews. Very little adjustments needed to match the HG 20 shots. Great little camera, very lightweight and compact.

Size- not too big and bulky to handle

the lens cap is not automatic
