Most helpful reviews

Andy, Kent Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Easy to use and its stand-by function thats allows you to start shooting again within 3 secs in great. Having files instead of recorded tape allows easy deletion of unwanted shots.
Bad points:
Its TOO light. I personally would prefer something with a bit of weight to ease the steadiness whilst shooting, especially at arms length. And i would also like a view finder, as sun light can make the screen hard to see.

Marcin, Bridgwater Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Good image quality (for this money of course)
not bad image quality in low light conditions (comparing to other cameras I was interested)
Camcorder has few interesting futures and effects
Very good optics
As you can see bad points section I am ready to pay this price for quality of my videos.
Bad points:
unable to connect separate video clips on camcorder - needs uploading to pc.
I wish that after recording I could just download ready made video clips in popular format (avi, mp4) unfortunately everything needs to be done on pc through program provided. Even though it is easy to use and has got useful options it is time consuming.
