"Daylight filming is extremely sharp and crystal clear with the HD recording. Night time shooting becomes a little grainy - but still very acceptable. Older camcorders however probably would have simply recorded pitch black so you had nothing at all! So more than happy with this camcorder!
Still images are fantastic and better then any digital camera I've ever had."
Yes, I recommend this product.

"Have only used on a one off trip (to Bali) so far. Video quality is excellent. However, the quality of the stills is very poor."

On Full HD battery could be better, but that isn't an issue for me."

Good bit of kit

"A quality bit of kit. The zoom is amazing, sound quality is good. It even has timelapse videoing which doesn't seem to be mentioned. The video quality is very good. The photo quality when zoomed inis not as good, it will leave your picture slightly grainy looking. Also with the photos once you taken a photo and then zoom in on your computer it looses some quality. Not to say the photo is all bad, the photos are good, but don't expect to be able to zoom in to parts of pictures once you taken the picture.
The video quality is excellent and you won't be disappointed if you buy the camera for videoing. The stability software in the camera is first class, but you still need to be steady with the camera. When zoomed in and panning slowly the steadying software makes a real difference.
The camera is way to use and set up.
I would recommend it even if it was double the price.
