Thinking about buying this camcorder

but the only review is pretty negative.

Any thoughts? Also, in order to publish on the internets,
do I need to buy editing software?

Do your homework, I would look for 1 that don't need special software,
Look for a firewire or usb2 output & windows compatable on camera file storage.
Beware HD cams videos take forever to upload ask Sapo.

What am I missing here? Is there a pic, or anything, else identifying the one you're looking at?

If you have a newer version of windows you probably have Windows Movie Maker somewhere on your hard drive. That is a pretty good place to start. The only problem is that sometimes you need to convert sound files if you want to add music. Glad to help in any way that I can.

Nice dog, BTW.

Cap'n the quality of the picture was fine. Do you intend to keep up guessing about the brand and model?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that looks like a dog, not a whole hog!

I use Vegas as well but I need it for the HD video camera. But it is a nice program and it lets you render in any number of final media formats like mp4, WMV, AVI, MOV and so forth. Here is a link to the basic version since you don't have HD video if you wanna take a peek at it.
