Advantages: Reliability; Ease of use; Sound quality; Picture quality; Great price compared to other camcorders.
Disadvantages: Features could be better; Battery life could be longer.
I spent months looking for a camera that was of good quality, both in materials, and recording capabilities, as well as being cheap, and I finally came across this little delight. It's not the most professional camcorder on the market, but that's okay if you just wish to record high quality videos without too much fuss over how to do it and what features to use.
The camera records with excellent picture quality as it has 800,000 pixel sensor resolution, with a 112,000 pixel display, truly showing high quality images. The camcorder also has a 34x optical zoom, as well as a 1200x digital zoom.
Features include shooting programs inclusive of: spotlight, portrait mode, hi-speed shutter, flowing water, food, sports mode, beach, snow, and special effects such as: negative, art, black & white, sepia, mosaic, pastel, mirror, emboss, step printing, cosmetic; most of these are common in video phones, digital cameras, and other camcorders, although there are one or two extra compare to the sub-standard machines. Other features include a microphone, as well as wind noise reduction that helps reduce the effects of wind in the microphone, helping make the noises slightly more distinct (this comes in extremely helpful, especially on beach holidays where a lot of coastal winds can drown out your voices and funnily enough, the sound of waves is also slightly filtered because they seem to have the same effect as wind on the microphone!).
The camcorder has an amazing range of operating temperatures and this range truly widens the capabilities of its performance in different climates, whether it is on the equator, or even in the North Pole, as the temperatures vary from 0 to 40 degrees Celsius. Also, the camcorder is only 6 cm wide, 12.5 cm long, and a mere 6 cm tall, with a combined weight of 270 g, you can barely feel it in your hands, in fact I've actually weighed it against a 12-pack of Richmond sausages, and it's noticeably lighter!
Summary: A great camera for tourists who aren't into professional filming, just family fun and memories!
