An excellent camera. Even the small battery that it came with lasts over two hours.
When a recording is made on a DVD (not BluRay) using the composite video output, it is hard to distinguish the difference between the original HD recording and the copy at a distance of three metres from a 127 cm Panasonic plasma screen.
I also like the camera's ability to completely destroy any images on the memory chip (I use a 32Gb one) by over-writing it with junk. Re-formatting merely changes the chip directory without removing data.

Great Camcorder brilliant piture quality,only one problem there is not a NIGHT setting,so if you like using your video at night make sure you use a light,or you get noise in very low light areas.
Buy your camcorder from GLOBALMEDIAPRO they are fantastic.
Great hi-end consumer camcorder

For serious consumer shooting.

Very noisy build in stereo mic. For serious recordings you really should connect an external (optional) microphone.

Lens is excelent for outdoor shooting but I should say average for indoor shooting (theater light).
Grande Qualità di immagine

Quello che sconvolge è la qualità di immagine che si riesce ad ottenere con questo gioiello! Tutte le regolazioni ti permettono di adeguare il tipo di colore, il gain, la stabilizzazione dell'ottica alle tue esigenze. Buone le soluzioni per aiutarti ad una messa a fuoco ottimale. Per l'audio puoi scegliere se usare il microfono interno o aggiungere ulteriori due microfoni di cui uno installabile sull'apposita ganascia.
