Flash memory is incredibly power efficient, letting you shoot for longer.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The best you'll get for ya cash. 27 Aug 2009
    Verified Purchase
    Well let me start off by telling you at first I got a similar priced camcorder from Sony, an Sx30e. It was rubbish!!! The colours were all over the place and did not look natural, the picture was fuzzy, the battery life was hardly anything to write home about and it was slow to focus. So I took it back and on the recommendation of someone who's really into camcorders I bought this little canon instead.
    Well what a difference! The colour is far more natural looking, it focus's much better, it's better in low light thanks to it's slightly bigger image sensor and it's got a built in LED light on the front to help you out in low light too. The battery life is bloody fantastic! Takes a bit longer to charge then the Sony but then that's only to be expected, bigger battery takes longer to charge. I'd say the battery lasts about an hour longer then the Sony did.
    As for the picture quality, well as I have said the picture is really good for a standard definition camera. Some people say you can't watch standard definition on a large modern high defnintion tv, well you can with this one and it looks ok. Yes you would get better picture quality if you paid another 200 for a good quality high definition camcorder, but not everybody is rolling in cash are they? Lol!
    One more thing, people may look at other cameras from Sony and Panasonic and notice they have a more powerfull zoom and that may make them lean towards those brands. Don't!!!! Let me spell this out for you, you cannot use the full zoom of any camcorder without either some conveniant place to rest ya arms on or a tripod. Why? Because even the tinyest hand movement (say a tenth of a millimeter) will result in mega shake in the video.

    3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointed with image quality 14 Feb 2010
    Verified Purchase
    A good package with all the features you'd need but, so far, the image quality is poorer than expected with colours a bit washed out (even in "vivid" mode) and not very good definition. (My expectations may simply be too high as this is my first experience with video)
