PRODUCT COMPOSITION


For around US$325-$350 you will receive the following.



First out of the box is the usual paperwork including a quick start guide, a main user's manual along with a software and driver CD. The software included is comprised of Ulead's VideoStudio SE DVD along with Photo Express SE. Also remember to register your product to get your warranty activated. Too many people forget about this only to be without any coverage if something happens down the line. Not saying it will happen, but you might as well protect your investment.



Starting from the 9 o'clock position and moving clockwise you will see the following:


- Remote Control
- USB Cable
- Video Cable
- Two Batteries (One for the Remote and one for the photo portion of the camcorder.)
- External Power Supply
- Power Supply Wall Power Cable
- Lens Cover Strap
- Camcorder Lithium Battery Pack



And last out of the package you have this small digital DVD camcorder. Although it is rather compact, it still has enough heft to feel balanced and well built. The overall first impression I had when I was holding it for the first time was excellent quality. Nothing was loose, there was no squeaking or play from poorly constructed components or the camcorder's shell. To boil it down it feels quite solid and seeing it weighs in at only just a hair over one pound it will insure it won't be a burden to use for extended periods of time.


Some people might roll their eyes at me saying that but I can't even count how many expensive toys I have tried that felt like a dime store piece of crap when holding it and checking out for the first time. My usual first comment is "they want $800 for this??!!........" You get the picture.......




At certain angles you might consider the newer DVD camcorders to be relatively the same size as the older MiniDV alternative. Only when you change your perspective will you see there is a 20-30% reduction in size. This camcorder is a small tight little package.
