Decent Camera


dont get sucked in by overanalyized reviews, it takes away from what you are really looking for!

good camera for the money ; picture 8-10 ; sound 7-10 ; This is a good camera for the money and does what i wanted it to do- RECORD VIDEO! it also takes pictures, BONUS! Everyone seems to scrutnize camcorders like they are filming the next starwars...

kinda annoying that it is a little zoomed in when you turn it on but not a ruin your life type of situation! battery life could be 100 hours instead 1 1/2 hours and 2 terabytes of built in memory would have been good too
