Score 7.0/10
Good points:
lower cost, light and easy to use.
Bad points:
For the money it was fine but HD camcorders give such a difference it was worth making the investment now to protect memories for the future. In 10 years i won't remember how much more I paid for the high def version (GZ-HD300)

DAUGHTERS BOUGHT THIS CAMERA FOR A BIRTHDAY PRESENT.
VERY GOOD CAMCORDER , USED ON A RECENT HOLIDAY TO SCOTLAND , COULD EASILY BE USED FOR STILL SHOTS AND FILMING, SOFTWARE VERY USER FRIENDLY, WE WERE ABLE TO DOWNLOAD PHOTOS TO LAPTOP AT NIGHT BACK AT OUR HOTEL ROOM ,SO WE HAVE ONLY NEEDED TO USE INTERNAL MEMORY.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I'm not good with gadgets but I'm really pleased with this. My hands are not great but this is so light I can use it for a long time and keep it quite steady.
The zoom is brilliant.
Great to use if you are not a 'techi'.
Bad points:
I found It hard to take stills without getting camera shake and I wish the zoom could be operated with the same hand that holds the cam corder, operating would then be smoother. I'd still recommend this camera though.
