Consumer review by:

Excellent little camcorder


I originally bought this camcorder to work with my laptop and produce training videos. I have to say I am extremely satisfied with this purchase. The unit interfaces with a firewire cable (not supplied) which fits into a small port on the side. ...

Small, good battery indicator, easy to use menus on the screen.

Would need a tripod to use the highest zoom settings
