    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Small, takes still pictures, it's miniDV, good video and sound quality.
    Cons: It is really expensive and has a short battery life.

    Pros: Great movie picture. Lens is incredibly sharp.
    Cons: Fragile mechanism. LCD hard to see in bright light. Some features only accessed thru remote.
