When I first unboxed the camcorder everything was neatly and placed securely. This camcorder is lightweight and easy to handle and operate. Image quality is not that good especially if you record in AVCHD and MP4, I prefer recording with MOV. It works well with any microphone systems. Check some of my videos on YouTube. Search for Kwano Fashion Week.
