Easy to use. I have had fun playing with it - it seems idiot proof. Good results even allowing for dark background outside. Optical zoom excellent
Bad points:
Handbook could be more user friendly. What about a simplified need to know sheet?

Vaughan , Ipswich

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
I only decided to purchase a camcorder when my son was born- I wanted something that was easy to use. Overall this is proving to be a good camcorder for someone like me- who just wants to record family events etc and not become a video expert. The picuture quality is much better than I expected.
Bad points:
You can't record video clips onto SD memory- only photos.
