The Pros:Easy to pick up and start using, controls are simple. Low light isn't too bad, gets a fair amount of detail. Image stabilization works pretty well, good for handheld recording.

Additionally, the camcorder aims to be usable in portrait, landscape, indoor, and outdoor groups shots with a 35.7mm wide-angle lens and a 25X optical zoom, further enhanced to 35X with Intelligent Zoom technology that corrects image quality as the video is zoomed. Up to six faces can be registered with the camcorder and, from then on, recognized during video capture with Intelligent Auto technology that automatically focuses video capture sessions on registered faces. For storing captured video the HDC-HS60 utilizes a combination of SD and SDXC memory in conjunction with 8GB of built-in memory.
