FS21 is superb! It went with us to Mount Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar with a top altitude of 18,300. The footage is in excellent shape, battery life survived very well (had to sleep with them due to cold) and easy to use. Elements did not affect the product and the still photos are amazing. SP worked very well for our needs as we took enough SD cards for about thirty hours. I would suggest videoing everything to SD cards to make transfer to your computer much easier. The only suggestion I have is to recommend the newest version of iMovie for Mac users. Overall very satisfied and we look forward to making more videos of our adventures!

Pros: Compact Design, excellent image quality, Easy TV Connectivity, good battery life, Great sound/audio, durable, easy to use, Good Software Compatibility
Cons: Difficult Computer Connectivity
I like the this camcorder, very easy to use. It fits the hand well. Low light performance is just as good as any other camera on the market. Had a little trouble connecting to my computer, once that was taken care of, the camera connected without any trouble.The video quality is very good and the zoom capabilities were excellent.Very good sound quailites also.

Pros: Compact Design, Easy TV Connectivity, Easy Computer Connectivity, good battery life, Ergonomic/comfortable to hold, durable, image quality average
Cons: Limited Software Compatibility, Poor Low-Light Performance, software playback needs slowmotion feature, no remote control
Nice all around unit.
Would like to see a slow playback funtion on unit.
The software instalation was a nightmare. I needed to contact software vender for instalation info.
Software works ok but has limited playback funtion such as slow motion and frame by frame veiwing.
All in all this is a nice little vidio camera.
I'm sure someone makes a better software package that is compatable with it.
