Bought this camcorder as im off on my holidays this year.... Very small, the size of a mobile. You need a Memory card for this which does not come supplied. The only way of charging this camera is by USB connection so buying a mains charger is recommended. Picture quality is great but you never know when your on record as no sound or indication lets you know. All in all if you want a small camcorder that you can take anywhere then i would recommend this, as it truely is a great take anywhere HD camcorder!!!!
