Mainak, Cardiff Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
The image quality is good. The video quality is good.
Bad points:
The manual needs to be improved specially the video format and its size details need to be provided. The software given for video mixing does not have a good manual and it not good. It should provide more details and should be more user friendly for the novice. The battery life could have been better.

Ron , Weston-super-Mare Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I bought this camera to video hockey matches which I previously did with a canon ixus 210.
With the legria I can now stand at the halfway line and zoom into each goal with no problem.
I only use the software supplied to download the videos to a pc and use other software to tailor for the web.
The camera is easy to use and is great for videoing sport.
Bad points:
I would suggest an extra battery is bought as the one supplied just about lasts a full match (70 minutes).
Apart from that it was a very good buy.
