Kumar, London Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Ease of use. Almost ready to shoot once you insert battery, memory card and open the screen.
Decent battery life. Upto 3hrs.
Inbuilt video effects, make you feel like professional ;)
Very light weighted.
You can use with both the hands.
Bad points:
Photo quality is not that good. Of course, it is not intended for that use.
It would be much better if it has dual sd card slots.

Nigel, DUDLEY Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This camcorder gets mixed reviews. Good and bad. For the money i paid for this i got an absolute bargain Good build quality lots of manual settings as well as the smart auto setting very good 30x optical plus the digital zoom.Some critics say steer clear, but i say for the money, you get a cracking HD camcorder .There are a lot of better spec camcorders out there and they all cost a small fortune.
Bad points:
On high zoom it is hard to keep the camcorder steady.
Also if you down load to your computer make sure the processor is fast other wise your recordings will keep on buffering.

CHRIS, lowton Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
lightweight and easy to use the camcorder. the video is nice quality. I found it quite intuitive. The battery is excellent for general domestic use.
Bad points:
Initially i was dissapointed with playback but this was down to me downloading files from the SD card and using Quicktime to play them back. Plug the camcorder in and download software to get the most out of the playback. Unless you are pretty profficient with a computer you will find getting your files recorded on a dvd a challenge!

Andy, NORTHWICH Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I really love this camera. It's so easy to use and the picture quality is unbeatable. I looked up a few reviews myself and this camera was scoring very high on all points. Unbeatable at this price.
Bad points:
I would have liked a microphone input on the camera for a close up sound when interviewing but can get around this by recording on the laptop and syncing the sound in later.
