I purchased one of these just for a basic camcorder, low light video quality is poor but can be expected for the price range, Cons to this product :zoom lever is wired backwards to older camcorders (forward or push should zoom in & back or pull should zoom out, also the zoom on display panel is wired in the opposite direction to the camera zoom leaver so it is a challenge for the stoned or those with dyslexia , next is no fade to black option is a deal breaker, third is the thumb switch is not thought out either it should pause & un pause the footage not stop & start a new clip (the pause button is located on the side panel, a little retarded it should be the other way around) other than those 3 issues I found it a great little entry level camcorder for the price, the mic placement up top may be an issue in the wind but it has great sound & perfect for on the fly narration as you shoot.
