Summary: What a waste of money. Having a camcorder that you can use when ever you go out or on holiday etc you expect the battery to atleast hold its charge. used the camcorder a few times since i brought it.
Summary: This was our first camcorder and it works very well. The pictures are clear and the unit is easy to use. Downsides were the amount of picture shake - but this could be our inexperience - and the quality of the still photos is not as good as my Canon Ixus. Overall very happy.
Summary: I searched the net for ages looking for a little HD camera, didn't really need the photo part but wanted it to fit in a pocket or handbag, this one ticks all the boxes although the picture is a bit grainy in low light conditions but that should be expected for a camera this size and i wasn't...
Summary: Impressed is the only word i can use to describe this smart little camcorder. It was purchased as a present for my wife who wanted a camcorder that was not too technical (point and shoot). I read all the reviews and then took the plunge.
Summary: The camera was bought as a present and luckily thanks to amazon :) arrived just on time before Christmas! The camera is very light and very easy to use, pity doesnt have a protective cover nor a strap. The resolution is great although it suffers in the dark or in poor light.
Summary: Easy to use and has a nice quality video. But I think the battery is a major let down. It doesn't last (no matter what the manual says re: battery life - trust me, you'll need a second or third one).
Pros: Easy to use, light and great quality video (considering price).
Cons: Poor photos (gimmicky), poor battery life (DEFINITELY buy a second one...)
Stylish and easy to use but disappointed by quality

Summary: I bought it because I would like a compromise between a camera and a camcorder. It is very stylish, easy to use, good to hold, great menus and screen. But the quality is not here. It is not a good camera and not a good camcorder (my old Canon Ixus 60 is better).
Summary: The Xacti doesn't come with any software, an SD card to record to, a wrist strap, bag or HDMI cable. The Xacti is smartly made and has a large, adjustable, LCD which is viewable in sunlight. Being left-handed I found the unit difficult, but not impossible, to hold.
