Steve, Haslingden Experienced amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent video and still picture quality, sound also very good. Very light to carry. Screen easily visible even in sunlight.
Bad points:
As with almost all modern video cameras - no view finder, which I miss. Battery life not good probably due to screen being all the time when recording. Spare battery essential if out for the day. Cannot make DVDs when highest video resolution used, presumably possible if you have a blu ray writer though. HDMI cable not supplied.
