So, first you should ask yourself what you expect from a 200 camcorder, considering the quality of RED, it is expected to realize that you will be disappointed. I bought the camcorder for my private photos, but hold for nature, trains also to private moments. And even semi-professional recording you can do with it, if one still gets a tripod and easily edit the recordings on PC. The quality is great with 1080 50p, and I myself have not so often recorded with 50p, super liquid, very good quality. The audio quality is really great for the price. Zoom is really good, also processing the camcorder, you realize immediately that you hold a Canon product in your hands, even if it cost only 200.
All in all, I was ambivalent at first, because here you just can not find a camcorder, in which really are only good reviews, I decided to model me anyway and that was the right decision, a great camcorder for the price!
