Asa, Bristol Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Great camera, eats battery quite a lot but you can buy additional ones which have more capacity

I give the image quality a 10 as its very good for this price range, obviously there will be better camcorders without going fully professional but you will pay for that
Bad points:
Not much in the realm of accessories, a good camera bag is a necessity as if the screen gets damaged it is otherwise useless

The on board microphone is good but if you require a little more than home video sound you'd be best going for the sd900 range and buying a good microphone attachment.

Claude, SEIGNOSSE Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
It is for me too early to talk about good or bad points. The battery seems to be OK and I like the information concerning the indication concerning the remaining time. The image is superb but as I said it is too early to get an overall appreciation and I don't master all fonction yet.
Bad points:
Although it is not a real bad point, being French, I would have appreciated to get the documentation in French language. Any possibility? My English is not too bad (I hope), but you how documentation are and many technical terms or special fonctions would be more understandable in my mother language. Thank you in advance if you can help.

Michael, HULL Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Video picture quality is excellent, the still pictures at 14 megapixels are as good if not better than my panasonic G1 camera. very light and easy to handle The video when a copy is made onto dvd disc in AVCHD format when played onto my panasonic 42ins plasma is to me broadcast quality. the software supplied is very easy to use, to copy video to disc if a little basic.

Ray, Exeter Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Superb image quality. Light and easy to carry.
Bad points:
High performance PC needed to view and process images although I assume this would apply to all similar HD camcorders. Not used enough to assess battery life properly but seems reasonable.
