Video Camcorder an excellent deal

 

The video capabilities are every bit as good as the more expensive canon models while the lower price makes it affordable. Very happy with the HD format and sound quality. Very small and easy to use.

Awesome Video Quality

 

The video quality is awesome, especially when viewed on a HD LCD television. The video even looked very good on a standard 4:3 TV that was 10 years old. I attached the camera to the dash of my truck and just recorded straight ahead while driving down...

Criminally bad battery

 

This would be an above average casual video camera if it weren't for the battery. The battery is so inadequate that it should not be sold - even as a backup. Fully charged and filming continuously it will last 15-20 minutes. To make matters worse, it...

I needed to upgrade to a good 1080p camcorder. I read the reviews and decided to go with this unit. I'm glad I did. It works well. The zoom and stability control are great. It is a little smaller and lighter than I expected, but that just makes it...
