It’s pretty lame, yes…but it’s just a first try! I went to Carmel and drove south down Highway 1 on the coast, yesterday. I used the camcorder for video and photos…I never used my digital camera. Actually the photos come out pretty well too…I like the dimensions…they look like movie stills…so they are in widescreen format. It’s something different…but it’s good to know that I can take just the camcorder when I go somewhere…I don’t have to take my Sony camera as well…which is larger by the way. It’s good to have options.
