And how does it compare to cameras around the same price point?
How is it in regard to size, reliability and usability?

Can you explain more about what you mean by narrative film? Can you give examples of narrative films you aspire to emulate?

Short fanfilms, student films etc.

Short fan films--it's a fine camera. Fan films are all about the creativity and energy of the people in front of the camera, not the camera itself. If you have lots of wit and wisdom to share, you can definitely get by with a camcorder.
As for student films...ask your teachers. Different teachers try to teach different things. A camcorder may be just the ticket, or it might lack some crucial features that the curriculum requires.

The camcorder is fine, but really more a test of your skill, so how good are you? If you are good, then the camera is good. The question that begs to be asked and only YOU can answer it. Any camera or camcorder is only as good as the person using it?

I will always try to steer others from using this camera based on knowing how the footage fell apart in post. Specifically the red channel. It just acted so differently. If you must use this camera, nail your exposure and light well. As with any camera, it can be noisy, but that red channel is weird.
