Excellent!

 

Excellent quality (semi-pro), wide array of options for mics and mounts, intelligent interface. I actually used this for wedding videos and they turned out better than the my videographer's work

Great camera for pro looking video

 

This camera is about 3 times the quality of an ordinary model.....and about 1/3 the cost of a truly professional camera.

GREAT Video Camcorder

 

This video camcorder is MUCH better than the two previous camcorders I've owned. It has features very similar to my digital 35mm camera, so I can choose between several options for setting the camcorder for specific shooting situations. I highly...

Good quality overall

 

Good quality overall in pictures, could be better microphone, don't like that the default is to record on internal memory so I have to constantly change to SD card setting
