Nice, compact camcorder for high-quality filming when you don't want to intimidate your subjects as you might with a much bigger camera and setup. The zoom works a whole lot better than I ever would have expected but it's the option to shoot in 24 fps...

So much less hassle than DSLR !

 

I was using a Nikon D4 previously for video work and my stress levels have dropped dramatically now that I use the camcorder. It is so much easier to use than a DSLR! Admittedly there is a trade off in the image quality which is very slightly softer...
