5 out of 5 eggsWho can ask for more?

Pros: excellent image quality, easy to use, great features even does descent in lower light situations

Cons: no built in light

Other Thoughts: was a little hesitant about buying because hm f200 is budget model but my worries were eased as soon as i viewed first video. video was at a swimming pool on a sunny day and the video was spectacular. perfect exposure with no washed out look. just a great camcorder.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Pro/Semi-Pro Backup Camcorder

Pros: Fantastic in every way. External microphone and headphone jack on a camera currently sellig at 139? Even at list price, this camera is a a Refurb, it is somply the only choice for serious videographers and casual users alike

Cons: Non-threaded lens barrel. Battery life, but, get a Wasabi battery set (2 per package + charger) for a third the price of a Canon extra capacity batteryand away you go...happy. For this camcorder, for this price, there aren't any other cons.

Other Thoughts: This camcorder gets stellar reviews from Professionals and Semi-Professionals alike, especially as a backup camcorder. BH reviews have it at 4.4-stars, with the majority of lower ratings usually given by casual users or by people who complain about battery life. The same is true of other review sites.

I use mine for storm chasing and for other stuff that places my camera at risk for breakage. I don't want to risk my professional camcorder during these sorts of adventures. Hard to believe, but, at this price, they are disposable camcorder. If it gets too beat up, you toss it.

Again, for this refurbished price, you can't beat it.

2 out of 5 eggsNot such a good deal

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Video isn't as great as online reviews suggested. I get more vivid colors out of a point-and-shoot. Mine was a NewEgg refurb and there's a problem with noise in theleft channel of earphones when I use a -plug-in microphone. And there's either problems with the camera or after-market battery packs that they drain way too quickly. I haven't worked that out yet.

Other Thoughts: I thought this would be a great deal, but it hasn't worked out that way. I think I can still return this. IF I can, I will.
