Pros: excellent quality, wide range of settings, good sound options, good vibration damping
Cons: not for the amatuer
Nice camcorder with solid feel and lots of manual settings for a multitude of situations. Accepts external mic, etc., for optimum sound, has nice features like wind noise suppression for in-car situations. Nice W/A - Zoom parameters.
