This is a good comcorder with some nice features. It is well built and doesn't feel like its going to fall apart in your hands. A large optical zoom of 10x, is plenty for any enthusiast. It does have a good amaount of manual functions however lacks certain features needed for profesional use. For example, this model has no manual focus ring and you aree restricted to using a small wheel which is difficult when snap focusing. It is nice to see a webcam function, however, this is spoilt by the auto turn off feature which is designed to save battery but becomes a nuissance during a video conference. Not only is this still, despite its age, a great camcorder but it is also very cheap, i picked mine up for just over £100 of ebay. Ideal for amature/enthusiast. Enjoy.
I think you could have done with including a little more information for the higher ratings here. Take a look around at other people's reviews and you should see what I mean. Happy to re-rate if you add to this, just put a note in my guestbook to let me know when you're done.
