Does everything it claims to do and so easy to use. For anyone thinking of buying their first camcorder I would highly recommend this product. The video record functions are simple to use and produce good quality video. Camera functions exactly the same. Smooth zoom controls using either the touch screen or manual button. Nice to have the choice. On the flip screen it has a touch sensitive menu sidebar which again provides an easy way to control all of the features available. The repeat snapshot feature is also great fun and easy to use. Slightly on the down side it could have come with a separate battery charger and the software is not the best in the world, but don't let that put you off.
This is an excellent product. Fits neatly in the palm of the hand and is easy to use. It has a great zoom lens and having the hard disk means the end of those countless cassettes that take up room. I am writing this review a couple of YEARS after purchasing this and it is still running beautifully.
