It's best for regular home purposes and commercial too.
But if you want to use it for filming for short movies this is not good option for you. Try DSLR for that
I ultimately set upon the V385 from Panasonic due to the balance in price, optical zoom, wireless ability and size. I used it quite a bit over this past weekend for a tournament sitting well away from the sideline up in the stands.
Firstly, the size and weight of this camera are unbelievable. I guess I've been out of the video cam market for a while but I didn't expect it to be so small and so light. In fact, when it showed up at the door, I didn't think there was any way possible it was the camera. Very light unit but has a great feel to it. For the most part, it is comfortable to hold but dare I say that women with smaller hands will find it more comfortable. My hands are almost too big, not to get through the strap for holding but my longer fingers fall well over the top of the camera which can make it a little difficult to get to the zoom controls. Not a big deal for me, just a note. I also used the camera atop a tilt/pan tripod for easy and smooth tracking o the field.
Setup for the camera was very easy and I was using it in minute or so after unboxing. Dropped in the 128GB card and I had purchased a two-battery pack with a car charger that arrived the day before so I had been charging the batteries. Put the battery in and I was set to go. The control buttons are small but you don't need to access them quickly so size doesn't matter here as much. Screen is a good size, not large but big enough. No viewfinder which I thought could be a problem for me but it wasn't. Operation with the screen open for viewing is the way to go here and was easy to track my target and adjust the zoom distance.
The controls on the zoom are really nice, can zoom quickly or slowly depending on desire. It's nice not to have a jerky or fast zoom in/out for playback. The screen is also a touch screen for changing options or during playback. The screen is 'pretty good' for this but you do have to be deliberate and spot on with your touches for it to register. The touch screen isn't only for buttons but also for sliding to other options, videos, etc.
For the games I was recording, I was set up at the top or the upper half of the covered high school stadium most of the time, once well back at the top of a hill in a chair. This is where the camera really shined. The optical zoom on this camera is incredible, truly. I'm not sure if it's because I have low expectations or because it's that good but .... it's that good. My ability to zoom in on my daughter from that distance, to the point where her entire head could fit in the screen clearly was amazing. I actually found the zoom to be far more than I needed and I was often too close and had to zoom out to capture more of the field. You won't be disappointed in this area, I don't see how you could be..
I have had NO issues with battery life so far. In one day I recorded two one hour games including warm ups, off and on, probably a total of 40 minutes each game and didn't use more than maybe 1/3 of the battery. It was the first charge on the batter though and I expect they won't be as good as time goes on.
I hooked the camera up to my 55" TV after getting back home and it was easy to do with the included HDMI cable. Using playback controls were a bit of a hassle on the touch screen and I didn't try using my TV controls. Will try that at a later date. Going to check to see if a remote may be available for purchase.
This camcorder also has twin-cam abilities which I didn't play with but it would be nice for doing video reviews. It also has wireless link support with your iPhone. I did test this out and it worked really well but didn't use it during video of the game as I had the camcorder mounted on a tripod for panning easily and didn't need to remotely control it. Seems like it would work relatively well however if you had a fixed record location and simply needed to zoom or record as needed.
In summary, I would MOST CERTAINLY recommend this camera for anyone wanting to film outdoor sporting events of their children or general use. I didn't test the single picture mode nor indoor filming so I can't speak to how it would do in lower light situations. The optical zoom along with the price makes this a great purchase and I'd purchase it again without a second thought. I'm glad my research paid off in this case.

Image Stabilizer is superb compared to other good brand. Upto 90x zoom( 50 x optical+ i zoom) picture is brilliantly superb. Also it has touch screen.
Its compact and light weight.
Overall very good camera.
