best deal for under $500

 

stock batt is fine for now on our trip and will be fine for parts of pratice and games, if you need to film longer then get the bigger batt

light,easy to use,no problems at all,under $xxx

LCD display looks grainy but playback on PC and or laptop is fine

Bad video

 

new egg is a good place to buy it if you must.

Easy use

Video output indoors is terrible outdoors is not so good either. Video looks grainy.. something like an old home video from the 80s

Perfect!

 

Thanx Newegg! Great products as always and wonderful customer service. Oh yeah, and the prices are pretty good too lol

This product is worth every penny you spend on it. The picture is very clear and the audio is outstandingly clear and loud as well. I am very impressed with how easy it is to use and how smooth it operates

UPS workers are lazy and paying for overnight shipping is not even worth waiting for. I ordered this on Friday, and the rest of my order came to me on Monday. Tuesday came and UPS wanted to wait until Wed. to send it to me, when they were only 30 mins...

Awesome camera/Short Battery Life

 

This is a next gen camera, a must have or if you have the $$ buy the GZ-MC500US pro or GZ-MG77. This is an awesome little, lite camera!

High res, Huge amounts of storage, quick download to PC or MAC, and No buy tapes nor disks

More suited during the day or a fair amount of light, short starting battery life(buy a 3 or 5 hour batt
