Had this delivered this morning and cant believe what a high tech piece of kit this is for the silly money I paid.
I debated long and hard over which camcorder to purchase given that I would probably only use it 5 or 6 times a year for holidays,family occasions etc. I finally decided that I would opt for a budget model given that I couldnt really justify the additional expense.
I have to say that this little gem looks, feels, and performs far better than what I expected from a so called budget camcorder.
First of all its tiny,not much bigger than a compact digital camera, and fits into the palm of the hand easily.
Having tried it out I have to say its a complete breeze to use. There's an easy function which basically takes care of everything and enables you to be up and running in no time. There are manual and scene mode options for when you want to take more control.
The picture quality from what i've recorded so far is really impressive and being an owner of and old Vhs-c model some years back I cant believe how things have come on.
This particular model may not exactly suit the serious movie maker but for those looking to film holidays, trips, and typical family type stuff, this camcorder is definitely up to the job. Dont be put off by the low price. Enjoy.
