This camera is a mixed-bag in terms of performance. It needs a lot of light to produce its best picture. Shooting outdoors, with sunlight, it can produce nearly spectacular images.

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 »
