    Bought this camcorder to use on our trip to Big Bend. Has a good picture and is easy to use. Biggest issue for me is that the viewing screen is difficult (sometimes impossible) to see if there is any kind of sunlight.

    Bought this to record my kids soccer games. The small screen is very hard to see in the sunlight, would recommend something with a less reflective screen. Video quality is good, just hard to see what you are recording.

    If you are looking for a good HD camera at a great price, then this is the camera for you. Picture is crystal clear and the camera is very compact. LCD screen is a bit small and the camera isn't made for low light conditions but still amazing for the price point.Perfect for YouTube beginners .

    so thought this would be a good bargain camcorder in between the $200-$300 range but to be honest was somewhat let down by it, First of all it didnt have wifi connectivity for ipad and iphone transfer of video or remote control. And the screen has a weird orange red tint to it that I cant seem to fix. Probably gonna return it.

    Camera is just OK, software is a nightmare

    I bought this camera to replace a HD Panasonic that had a faulty auto-focus. The camera is very lightweght and works like any other video camera. I didn't like the manual lens cover, I prefer the automatic kind but of course that costs more $$$. The camera operates fine, but I found the video screen lacking in brightness and color. My biggest complaint is when I went to download my videos to my computer, the software seemed to download my videos just fine but I couldn't get them to playback. After spending about an hour with the software download instructions, I finally gave up. Mind you, this is my third video camera (Sony, Panasonic) so I'm used to working with the software. I found this software totally unworkable. If you just want to playback on the video screen or maybe with an HDMI hookup to your TV, you may be OK buying this camera. But if you want to download and edit, forget it.
