Good points:
very good video for sd.battery life also very good.sound not bad.very light and small to carry.overall very good cant really fault it.exellent value for money.
Bad points:
first one i bought had a ticking sound over audio when recording in quiet enviroment ie. indoors with no back ground noise.this was the auto focus mechanism being picked up by the internal mic.it was returned and second one was fine.the ticking noise is not a design feature and anyone who buys this camcorder should be aware of this .

Alexander, Newport Just point and shoot

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Size, Value for money, build quality, the battery life is amazing, we bought it because the previous camcorder record only for 60 minutes and each time that we really need it the battery was flat, we have a baby and a little girl and they coming with so funny things that we just like keep, I charged the camera once and is enough for 3 hours of recording.
Bad points:
Nothing so far for a Standard definition camera.
