Pros: good battery life, Good Low-Light Performance, Easy Computer Connectivity, Great sound/audio, Accurate, Vivid Colors, Compact Design, excellent image quality, Ergonomic/comfortable to hold
Have had it for less than a week. Read the manual back and forth..,again and again. I am slowly getting used to all the functions. Picture is EXCELLENT...sooo much better than the ZOOM Q3HD I had before. You can't even talk about them on the same day!
The audio mix function is...FANTASTIC. There, I said it.
The built in mice are excellent, too.

Pros: Great sound/audio, Compact Design, Ergonomic/comfortable to hold
Cons: limited custom settings (iso shutter)
You can lock exposure and manually adjust white balance, BUT you do NOT have independent control over the ISO, Aperture, and Shutter speed. Those are all on automatic and you never know your exposure values. This makes no sense to me because you can do this on almost all other Vixia cameras.
Can't find the ability to turning off the screen or hide elements on screen (like INFO button on DSLR cameras)

Pros: easy to use
Cons: can't turn screen off while recording
I think this little camera is good, but it needs a couple of improvements. Main issues I had was not being able to turn off the screen while I'm recording. The screen is touchscreen so you have to be very careful not to touch anything while you're recording The other problem I had was not being able to flip the screen and hide it while you record. There always a potential for scratching the surface of the screen while recording.
Other than that I think I think it records pretty sharp and easy to carry.

Pros: easy to use, great quality
Cons: can not turn off lcd during recording
Having used may of ultra portable video camera for on location documentation, by far this is easiest and most user friendly ultra portable video camera. The video/audio is excellent and easy to transport into your computer for post-processing. I just wish it has some light weather resistance and also the ability to turn off the LCD screen during recording. I highly recommended for on the go recording.
