I also think the battery release, also in the LCD enclosure, is in a bad spot; opening the LCD usually turns the camcorder on, which means in order to remove the battery you end up turning on the camcorder.

Still images seem low-quality and poorly color balanced.

This cam is 4:3 only (it has Cinema mode for fake widescreen).

My only lingering complaint about the design--albeit a minor one--is that the clever joystick used to control menu and VCR functions is a bit too tiny, making it difficult to control accurately.
