I received this camcorder as a gift and I love it! I got it for Christmas, but it was given to me Christmas Eve so we were able to video tape Christmas morning with it! Not one hour after I was done I was able to upload everything on to my computer! Read full review »

Recommended it? Yes

I had a camera, 9 mega-pixels, but didn't do that good of video. I was okay with it, but after I saw the quality of HD, I saw that I hadn't seen anything! This camcorder is great, shoots in stunning HD, has 10x zoom, and weighs an extremely light 1.8 pounds. Read full review »
