An OK Replacement For My Broken Sony

Pendulum, Amazon
29 September 2013
  • Summary: The color and clarity aren't what my last camera was - but for a used camera it's ok. Basically the same features that my last one had, and that was what I wanted.

Good Camera But does not work with Mac Computes 10.6 or higher

J. Luke "J.Luke", Amazon
3 April 2010
  • Summary: I used this camera for a editing class. Though it's easy to use and small. It does have it's flaws. I'll tell you the good the bad and the ugly. THE BAD 1. Audio is terrible. If you want clear audio. You won't get it, with this camera. make sure to purchase a mike for audio use. 2. Zoom- way shaky zoom. If you want to zoom in. I suggest purchasing a higher end camera. The zoom feature is not very good. It's frustrating how shaky it is. (even with a tripod.) 3.

Good but......

Cormac Marnell "Mazz", Amazon
11 April 2008
  • Summary: You'll notice a common complaint with this line of cameras and that is the mic sensitivity/motor noise. The motor itself isn't particularly loud but due to its interior location right next to the mic it can be heard quite clearly when played back on a TV. The mic itself also picks up EVERYTHING in the vicinity. Now you'd imagine that would be a good thing but all it does is create a mess of sound that you struggle to hear what you want through.

Fair product for the $$

Programmer Dude "programmer dude", Amazon
11 April 2008
  • Summary: To begin, this is the first camcorder I've owned. It's possible I was expecting more...I own a Nikon CoolPix 8mp digicam that takes movies, but obviously not with any great quality. I was kind of expecting a little better quality (higher resolution) from the camera. From that point of view I was a little let down...it's sufficient, dont get me wrong, but it's only a step up from my digicam. The device takes memory card and tape..

Motor noise

Neil "Amazon fan", Amazon
27 February 2008
  • Summary: Camcorder has good features but the motor noise is quite loud and is captured while recording. Other reviewer had mentioned that turning on the wind filter feature helps and I tried this, but the noise is still audible during playback on the camcorder as well as when transferred to the computer and played back from there.

Noise on SDHC Card

S. Tenglin, Amazon
29 January 2008
  • Summary: When recording video to the SDHC card and zooming in or out, there is terrible noise. Otherwise, it seems like a good deal so far (I bought this on a gold box offer at $170 - I would not pay $249 for this camera).

Poor quality for pictures and movies

Cesar Ortega "Ale", Amazon
22 September 2007
  • Summary: I bought this product just because allows store photos and videos in a SD memory. Nevertheless I must say that the quality of image is very poor even if I formed the camera of the best way and tried it in the best environmental conditions. The relation price - quality is acceptable and is very easy to use.
