      Disadvantages

      Great camcorder for frequent users! and those new to camcorders!

      Love love love this camera! I'm not a techincal buff but i would recommend it to anyone! I got it as a birthday gift and it's never lft on the shelf when i go out.

      It is small enough to pop in your bag and extremely easy to use! From the moment it's turned on recording video is really as simple as pressing the red button. The display is really clear as well and it twists round 270degrees which makes recording at most angles very easy - including to the front of the camera to e-bloggers etc.

      The pictures the camera takes are good enough for it being a secondary feature but I have a digital camera also so tend to favour it for still photos!

      There are a few methods of transferring video from the camcorder to your computer - the easiest being to whip out the SD card and stick it in the computer (provided there is a slot to do so) The other way is to connect it up using the usb connection. In doing this you also need to have the camera charging at the same time to enable you to transfer videos - this can become a bit annoying when there's wires coming from everywhere and it's not as quick but still useful to ensure you have managed to get everything on the camera to the computer

      The zoom is a feature I use a lot and i've nevr come up against anything it couldn't focus on using the zoom.

      Using the menus on the camera is simple once you know what a few of the symbols means. You can delete pictures and videos on the camera using one of the function buttons but the symbols in this area are very small and I have managed to nearly delete one or two videos by accident but it does always ask you to confirm to disaster avoided there. Sound and picture quality on playback is very good and clear - the volume adjustable too.

      It's a very robust wee camcorder - having been thrown about in my bag and survived city trips and weeks in very hot summer sun, beside the pool and on dry dusty road - it's a wee trooper!

      As I've said not a techinal buff so more of a personal review but i've tried to include the things that are of the greatest importance.
