I have this model, and I take it on a lot of my trips. I don't have much to compare it to as I've never owned any other digital camcorder. But It's compact, records in 720p I believe, and with a silicone protective sleeve, weighs in at 4.7 ounces.
Sound sucks in in high winds based on my experience. But still, a screamin a deal for those in the market.
It's the deal of the day, so could be over in a matter of hrs, who knows
