We use this camera for recording when a more professional video footage is require. Examples are high profile visitors although it is only 1080i we find this adequate as there is currently no requirement to play back at true HD.
It is a good size with adequate low light capabilities. Has a Carl Zeis lens and good optical zoom. We tend not to use the digiatal zoom but it is capable of x80.
It is capable of recording 7hrs HD high quality and 11 hrs HD long play so no issues here.
