First of all, this camcorder isn't HD people! Its only standard definition, also when you edit/convert/save videos, the quality is always reduced. So with that in mind, don't go hoping for HD quality out of a $200, STANDARD DEFINITION CAMCORDER! I had a digital camera before this that shot HD video in 720P. The only reason why I bought this was because it had a LED light, optical zoom, and auto focus, something my digital camera did not have or do when recording. I am a pretty picky person and I can not be happier with the price and video quality. This camcorder is really quite small and should easily fit in a coat pocket or something like that. Its also very light weight. Both of these were nice because the last camcorder I had was from 2006, things changed a lot since then. The 60X zoom is insane, but when you are getting far out there it becomes shaky as expected. Auto focus seems to work great, and I manage to do about 120 minutes on the included battery. The touch screen works fine and is VERY responsive, you don't have to hit it spot on, so that is nice seeing as its smaller and people with large fingers may use that. The LED light is fairly bright surprisingly, no, its not stadium lamp bright, but very nice for what it is. This camcorder also has 4GB of memory built in and can take SD cards for extra. The Sony PMB is what I use to transfer the videos to my computer AND play them. Overall I am happy with this camcorder, and definitely feel I got a good deal for what I paid, which was a bit less than the price advertised here.
