Excellent

 

Best standard definition camera on the market for low light capabilities and picture quality. Rugged exterior and light weight reliable construction make it very versatile. If only it had 16:9 then would be the ultimate camera. Exceptional value for...

Everything. great low light, great picture. Camera very well balanced and features are exceptional

No true 16:9 (bummer). Also no professional XLR audio adaptors - this is easily overcome however by attaching a seperate XLR adaptor box - works brilliantly.
