I have had to completely upgrade my opinion of this little camcorder. If you can look past the lack of electronic viewfinder, which you can because the lcd is nice and bright, then there isn't much to say about this camcordrer that isn't positive. I have been using this camcorder now for a month non-stop, after two years of using a dslr for wildlife filming. This camcorder is so much better than the dslr! The focus is fast and the quality bit rate is the same as the dslr. Scenery is rendered superbly and the quality of the image is excellent. If you bare a few things in and you will get brilliant results.
I am amazed what this camcorder will do but remeber a tripod still improves things a lot and that it prefers good light. If the light is poor back off the zoom a bit. Even going from 20x to 17x makes a difference. On the video mentioned below you can see in the first part I have filmed a sunset in very light at 0x zoom and it looks better than the canon dslr could do. Adjusting exposure is easy too..
Usefully I have just posted a video of the native footage but I can't post a link here, so you will have to search alex sally hc-v750 on the tube and you'll see what I've filmed. The most amazing aspect for me is something that hasn't been mentioned in other reviews. THe mic records better than my rode. Look at the video mentioned above and remember all the sound was recorded in the field. It has staggered me how it does it. It really does zoom the mic to be shotgun like to match the optical zoom. Again just search alex sally v750 and you can hear for yourself.
