You Really Can't Go Wrong For This Price!

 

An excellent little camcorder. A decent lens, very good picture quality and easy to operate. It has all the main features you need.

Good Value For Money

 

The picture quality is very good, but I would say it isn't broadcast quality if that is what you are expecting !. It is HD though and looked fine on a 1080P tv. For HD Viewing, you can connect the camcorder to your TV via a Mini HDMI to standard HDMI...

GZ-HM430

 

This is a great little camera for the price. (on offer at £130). Its main selling point being the x40 optical zoom and a fast lens (f/1.8-6.3), which gives it a quite good low light performance.
