Exactly what I was hoping for2/17/2012
For my purposes -- a gigging musician who needs to record rehearsals and gigs where audio fidelity and size/weight are the most important criteria -- this thing is perfect. Having decent quality HD video is icing on the cake. The location of the camcorder lens is not an issue for me - I use a tabletop or full-size tripod most of the time anyway. I like the fact that I can just turn it on and get great results, or patch my mixer into the line/mic inputs and get truly excellent audio quality.
