I've had this camera for a little over a week now and I'm loving it. I have been using my T2i for the last 3 years and felt the need to complement it with an actual video camera.
I do the video for our youth football games and needed something with an actual zoom rocker and automatic focus. Being able to shoot in 60p with a high shutter speed also help when I want to put a play in slow motion for the final video. My T2i would overheat too much when I tried to go that route. The built-in mic is not horrible, but it's a built-in mic. Do yourself a favor and spend a little money on a decent external one. I also ended up getting 2 extra capacity batteries since I couldn't find any specs on how long the included battery would last. It looks like the included one can get me easily 2 hours of record time. The extra large capacity I can get easily 3 hours out of each with plenty of room to spare. Maybe even 4 hours if I drain it completely. I'm still not a huge fan of having to hunt in the menu for various functions but being able to assign the custom buttons works nicely. Lastly, image stabilization. All I can say is WOW! Unbelievable. It's not tripod rock steady, but it's pretty close.

Amazing...exceeded all expectations!!!
Great camera. This will be my camcorder for good. I don't think that there will ever be a reason to have to replace this camera.
