I bought this camcorder to replace an aging 8mm tape unit.
I had read that the method of saving files in a *.mod format
was causing problems for some owners. I use a Linux operating system and have had no problems at all transferring files or
authoring a DVD. The battery life is good at over three hours of steady recording and with 32gb of storage I get 7 hours of
recording time with the highest resolution setting. The movie quality is not on par with an HD camcorder but is still quite good. Do not plan on taking great pictures with the still camera option as he quality is not that great compared to a camera dedicated to that purpose. It is small, easy to use,
and has inexpensive accessories available.
Nice and compact. Simple to use once you get used to it. It's better to buy it with other lenses and sd/sdhc cards. It can be a pain to use if you don't read the instructions carefully. The software requires you to use itunes. The quality is ok. The video is recorded in .mod files so it can get complicated if you want to use it with other editing software. The pictures are ok. It's mostly meant for youtube. It's more like a nice little toy to have.
This little camera is awesome, better than a $500 camcorder I previously bought. It's simple, my little girl uses it and did not ever read the instructions...I didn't either. For the price, you cannot find anything better.
Still pics are not great, but it is a camcorder.the tiny little strap to hold it. It's not the most comfortable. I just use the wrist strap so it won't fall if I drop it. They do need to redesign it,... a little more cushy perhaps.
Bottom-line....this is a great camcorder. I love it, especially to satisfy the bottom dollar. It is a fantastic buy, and for more than you would expect from other camcorders in this price range.
PROS: Up to 32g SDHC class 4 or higher data memory. These are reasonably priced.
Camera capture of video session.
Compact, and reasonably intuitive menu transitions.
Onscreen zoom is a plus.
CONS: Format is not compatible with most of the industry, and the software is behind the curve imho. Software is not fully compatible with all OS's, so one has to know "what not to do" before "you" don't do it. I personally have larger hands and find it difficult to maneuver all of the transitions. I probably would do better with an old fashioned handle that screws in the tripod attach point.
The only reason this isn't a 5 star is that it isn't HD but then again i didn't want HD great quality flash camera with exceptional zoom and sound if you can find one get it. Better yet look up hdgamestore on eBay for a phenomenal deal. Do not however buy the 130 it isn't near the quality of this camera
