    Camcorder is easy to use. I love the video quality but the sound level could be better. It doesn't get very loud but you can still hear the recordings clearly.

    This is a great camera. I have bought two for my media production company. My favorite feature is the external mic input that allows us to use a boom mic when we film. This improves the audio quality of our videos significantly. The resolution of the video using this camera is exceptional.

    When I didn't pay a whole lot for this camera, I had tempered my expectations a bit, but to my surprise the video quality was outstanding. IMy rechargeable battery had the be replaced after a year and it didn't seem like we used it so much that it would die, but perhaps that's the reason it did die, by not recharging it regularly

    Video is 1080, Captures still shots, loads of fun and a nice break from using mobile phones! Battery life is good, decent low light videos.

    My wife and I bought one of these for our son and his wife last year and another for our daughter and her wife this year. The video quality is excellent and it is very easy to use.

    Camera is small, very light, and takes good video. The video is saved to a memory card so easy to get video onto a laptop.

    It is simple, takes great video, and the added feature of a microphone jack make it the best buy for me. I don't use 4K resolution for anything, so there was no need to pay more for a video.

    I didn't need anything more than a decent video camera to shoot some training videos for personal use. What I got when I bought this video camera is better than I had hoped. I get great quality video and the battery life is really good. I was amazed at the quality of outdoor video even outside of bright sunlight. Indoor video is very good as well.

    A great, cheap camcorder, but not without flaws.

    This is a great camcorder for anyone pursuing a hobby in filming and the like on a small scale. The video can be taken in a variety of qualities, and its durable and portable (I would know, it held up during a two week trip in Iceland). There are some problems with it, though. The camera function is poor in that the photo quality is bad, the video quality plummets with a negligible change in light, and the camera shutter (in mine at least) can get stuck, as it is manual, though this does not happen often. I would definitely recommend getting this camcorder to any beginners in filming, though.

    I purchased this before I went on a fishing trip in Canada and it worked great! The zoom is amazing and the video/photo quality is top notch. Can't wait to film more with this cam!

    Video and sound are decent for family "video snapshots" but holding the camera is awkward and most external mics do not work. Overall, disappointed, but then you get what you pay for. A good smartphone is a much better bet for quality videos.

    Does a great job at recording video. Great option if you don't need a bunch of extra features like WiFi and built in storage. Quality video.

    I love this camera, has input for external microphone and output for headphones allows my to insure quality audio with my videos. I would not recommend for low light environments. If using in low light an external light source is necessary.
