. I was happy to find that it is truly in "very good" condition and has all the features of a new one for about $100.00 less. The 40 times zoom is incredible. Of course, it is hard to hold still at full zoom without a tripod or bracing yourself or the camcorder against something solid. The image stabilization helps, but can't stop all movement. I wanted this model camcorder because it captures in 720P rather than 1080(though files can be up-converted to 1080). The files are smaller(less than 1/2 of 1080)for storage and processing, yet provide HD impact that many won't differentiate from 1080. It will also capture in regular quality for easy recording to a DVD. The camcorder was received quickly with everything but the Media Browser3 software.
