Summary: Frikkin A is all i can say ,just superb in every way. Initially bought a Sony like because of the name i guess and a previous fantastic camcorder they made but wait, the latest ones are useless compared to this machine very very recommended don`t get the Sony DCR-HC45 £200 camcorder what ever you do, it sucks and had to send it back well not up to the job or just plain faulty i don`t know . By the way can`t beat Amazon for Customer Services very professional THANKS!
Summary: Having had this camcorder for a few weeks now and experimented with its various functions (including still photos), I can honestly say that I am completely happy with it and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. I agree with all the comments posted about it so far, other than that as a first time camcorder user I have found it very easy to get to grips with.
Summary: Just received the camcorder today. Already tried filming and playback, plus still photo shot, connecting to telly and to iMovie HD on my Macbook. All worked a treat. Bought some DV tapes, 2GB SD card and Firewire 400 (4-pin to 6-pin) cable (DV output makes iMovie import better, I believe), as none of these come in the box. All plugged and slotted in to work first time.
Summary: I did not want to spend a lot, but wanted an up to date widescreen camcorder. I was happy to have tape and the DV format rather than a DVD or HD machine. After much scanning of available information I settled on the MD160 without having seen one anywhere. My previous camcorder is a hi8 Canon, over 10 years old and still going strong, but not widescreen. A relative has a new DVD Canon camcorder and I was impressed, except for trying to edit images off the DVD.
