Advantages: Quality images, good zoom, compact, value for money
Disadvantages: short battery life, poorer quality in dim light
Handling both dual-layer DVDs and RW discs, you can record directly to disk thus reducing the risk of data loss, there will be lots of storage space and it is convenient; just slip the DVD into your computer or DVD to watch
It has a powerful 34x optical zoom so you can focus on distant objects and still maintain its high quality. Remember that digital zoom will reduce the quality of your shot so if you know you will film distant objects high optical zoom is the way to go.
It is compact, light and portable. It is 800,000 pixels providing a very good image. Excellent with well lit areas but not great image quality in poorly lit areas. Unfortunately battery life is short so carry a charger and some spare batteries.
8 different shutter speeds and image stabilisation are fantastic when filming fast moving objects, also when moving the camera while filming the images will not be blurred. There are nine digital effects: Negative, Art, Black & White, Sepia to name a few. You can use the effects in your recording process or add them later. It also has a built in microphone and wind noise reduction ability.
A TFT monitor (Thin Film Transistor) produces excellent image capture allowing you to make the appropriate adjustments when filming in order to maintain the quality of the images filmed.
DVD-editing function with title and scene functions are very convenient, fun and easy to use. I would reccommend going into a store that stocks it and giving it a try and if you like buy it online from a reputable seller as you will find more bargains.
Summary: Value for money camera with good image capture and videos
