Very nice little camcorder


I bought this camcorder to tape historical places our ancestors lived when they came to the USA, accompanying the Mayflower... It is easy to pack, carry in your purse, take in the car and hide inside when leave the car... So far, am pleased with it....

Small and easy to take anywhere

When so light, is easy to pick up shaking when filming

Consumer review by:

Lots of features for the money.


It was time to move up to a HD video camera and I think I chose the right one. The ease of operation, smooth zoom feature and large enough viewing screen were all appreciated. Some of the controls on the inside are a little awkward, but all in all I...
