Voted hot.

I've got one of these having paid about the same after quidco and vouchers from empiredirect.co.uk. Would definately recommend it for anyone considering getting their first camcorder. Incredibly easy to operate, quick start up time from standby and feature packed at a bargain price. The lower spec model with smaller hard drive was made a Which Magazine Best Buy last year when it was priced at £300 so this is definately a bargain.

Show me a hybrid dvd/hdd camcorder for less!

Looks good to me. Heat added!

Looks good. what is it like indoors? Are the lighting in movies good or do you need extra lighting?
