Very pleased with this product. It produces superb quality movies. When it eventually dies we will almost certainly buy the next generation to replace it. There are a couple of things that could be improved,
1) I find when I'm panning there can be a certain amount of 'shake' when reviewing the footage. It might make you think you have mild Parkinsons disease. It needs improved image stabilisation (although, once you realise this, you can work around/live with it).
2) Zoom is too short at X2. X4 would be a big improvement.
3) It needs a wrist strap.
Other than that, it's fantastic, and at $99 a real bargain.
