Can't use LED screen in sunlight. Long range focus takes a longer time to register than I would have hoped.Stabilization works great at long range. Picture quality is very good. Snapshot is okay, Zoom is okay but you can take a photo out with any good video editor. Convenient compact size. Lens cover doors will fog lens when used outdoors over long periods Economical. User friendly.Touch screen very handy for average to smaller fingers. I would buy again for my modest needs..

Pros: Easy Computer Connectivity, Compact Design, Ergonomic/comfortable to hold, easy to use
This camera has exceeded my expectations for a consumer camcorder. The auto focus and focus follow are quite good. I bought the Canon wireless mic to go with it. It does not do well in low light, but I am surprised how well it does with filming small objects.
