Pros: Great picture quality, easy to use, light weight, durable
I have had two previous camcorders, and this one is by far the best one. For those of you who don't know how to do all the technical things, like me, this one is one of the easiest to use. It gives such a wonderful picture quality, you can keep it very sturdy because of it's light weight.
The thing I like most about this camcorder is that when you have the screen out and your outside when it's very sunny out, you can't really see what you are recording, so all you have to do is pull out the view finder. Through the view finder everything is very clear no matter what circumstance. I love that it has two options available. The screen is the best feature for me especially having two little ones who go two different ways. I can film one and watch the other at the same time.
Having the ability to title and document the occasion is great. It comes with many options for different holidays, and you can even script your own message. I use this feature all the time, and it's very simple.
Also, the movies I make look so good, unlike with my others which were heavier, and harder to keep sturdy would bounce around a lot. It was obvious when you were walking or moving from one place to another really fast. But with this one you can't tell as much. I am very pleased with this camcorder, and it's reasonably priced.
