I use this professionally to record lectures and find it does the job perfectly! Sturdy, great picture, holds its battery life well. A formidable zoom allows me to film things without getting in anyone's way. Have accidentally dropped it a few times and it has pulled through - what a trooper. Lasted a good few years now. Recommended. Great lens and a nice big, adjustable display screen, meaning it is easy to use and adjust. The zoom function is perhaps not quite as smooth as I would like, and if you zoom in it can sometimes jerk a bit too begin with. Easy to use, compact, easy to carry around. One problem I have found, however, is a glitch that means the camera takes random photos while filming. This is odd but in no way disrupts the filming process or damages the final video. Bit strange, but should not put you off!
This camcorder is light, compact and easy to use with superb video and still image quality. It features Full HD recording on internal hard disk drive, plus 5.1 surround sound, Face Detection and Smile Shutter.
Surround sound adds an extra dimension of realism to your videos, just like at the cinema. 5.1-channel recording captures crisp, lifelike audio that sounds great on your home theater system. Best of all, you don't need extra microphones or cables: everything's built in to the camcorder.
Faces can look dark and underexposed in bright, backlit situations like a sun-drenched beach. And if you're shooting indoors there's a risk your subject's skin tone can look unnaturally colored. The camcorder fine-tunes focus, exposure and skin tone for more natural looking faces.
