Written by Mark McCarthy. We're always excited to get our hands on new technology and equipment so the camera was swiftly biked over to us. Having known nothing about the camera beforehand I was surprised by just how small it was when we first unpacked it. Literally the size of my hand! Like anyone would, I flicked on the camera and had a play with it before I even looked through the manual to see what other features it offers.

Reviews Excellent. Excellent recorder and very versatile. Uses it with should pad and excellent quality. The camera has lived up to all I expected so far and am extremely pleased with it. I thought the zoom would be a bit low for my needs with an optical zoom of just 10X however the digital zoom is amazing and seamless. You cannot tell when it changes from optical to digital until the extremities are reached absolutely amazing.. Not had chance to use it to its full capability, but I am amazed at what they have crammed in to this miniature marvel.
So far well pleased! This is the camera I have been waiting for - high end consumer with a lot of useful feature. Easy to use in every way. Have only used it for music gigs in very low light so a bit early to determine true quality. Auto settings tend to struggle a bit when stage lighting is blue, but you can use it in manual mode just as easily. Nice to have option of internal drive or SD card and battery life is around 4 hours so long enough for anything I'm doing right now. This beauty was worth waiting for,rnFor on the move events where sound and picture quality is important and equipment and set up time is limited, then this purchase brought me home with amazing results.
