HC-V130K is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can't beat the price! High quality, budget friendly camcorder. Features are basic, but the images are great. Very portable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera for the price! This camera works great for simple recording i.e. family, church, school events. Great zoom. The camera has built-in memory and SD memory card slot. The touch screen menu is easy to use. The camera supports panning with reduced shaking. Wish there was better lighting capabilities and that the internal memory storage was larger. Great batter life, especially if you turn off cam after use (versus just closing the LCD display).
