This is a HD camcorder, for a fraction of the price of ones that movie-makers use, but has everything. It is a little heavy, but that much is obvious just from looking at it. Stunning HD makes any movie shot from this beautiful, and very clear. For under 14 hundred, this is a steal! Read full review »
