Pinnacle Studio 16 (PC) by Corel
Unimpressed I'm afraid. I purchased it to run on Windows 8 which my previous version (Studio 10) can't do. Yes, the revamped software does look prettier to use. The older version doesn't look as slick as Studio 16 but for me, it is much more straightforward to do what you want to do, including the real basics.

With the new version I can't enable the frame accurate editing function which was really very easy on with the earlier software. In principle, the video tutorials are great but, even following the relevant one step by step, the required button on the screen for the mode I wanted wouldn't enable, so scene clipping has to remain approximate according to how wide you set the… Read more

Further to my earlier review below, I have to downgrade my original rating. I dropped the camera a small distance, no more than 6 inches, onto a metal protrusion cracking the rear display (it would fall that way, wouldn't it!). It seems to me a camera designed for use in 'activity' conditions should be more robust than that. I seem to remember another reviewer experiencing the same thing, hence the downgrade.

On the minus side, it is well documented that the picture quickly becomes very grainy in poor light conditions so probably best to set the 'Maximum for ISO' option to no more than 400. As also commonly pointed out, the display on the back is not great but I can live with… Read more
