Summary: Although I think some of the unique features that this model has, like the VCR mode, are wonderful, I have had serious problems with it. I had to return it twice in 30 days because two different things had broken on it.
Summary: I received this camera as a gift in early November to use for the holidays this year. But after returning twice I decided to go another direction. This camera seems to have a problem with noise (funny lines and shapes) on recordings.
Summary: Bought this camera, the reviews had good things to say about it. The very first time I used it, upon playback, the video was very badly pixelated even though it was a new camera and new tape. Not a good start at all.
Summary: We've had our Sharp VLNZ100U for about three months now and we love it. The reality is that this camera is a 1/2 megapixel camera whick makes it not the ablosute best quality picture, but for the cost is very good.
Summary: I have read many comments, all that I could find online actually. For the ...price after the rebate this is a great digital camcorder. What I read online in all user comments are: 1) Sharp doesnt support data transfer to a PC via IEEE1394.
Summary: My fiancee and I were getting married in a week. I wanted to purchase a digital camera for the wedding. We looked at several models and decided on this one. Why? Because while the still resolution is not stellar, 640x720 or so, the video recording is top notch.
Summary: I bought this camera after seeing the reviews on amazon.com, in particular that it was durable. I enjoyed doing videos with it. But very soon after the warranty expired, the video stopped working. It still worked as a VCR, but not as a camera.
Summary: Did I say cheap? You get less than what you paid for this camcorder. I bought it because it was going to cost $... after rebate. Now I know why it is so cheap. This thing is nothing more than a fancy webcam with firewire and usb connections that records on DV tapes.
Summary: For [more$$] bucks, I might be disspointed. But for only [$$], I would say it is a very good baby. The Video is good but absolutely better than my old Hi8. The Sound is super. I did transfer the video to my computer via the Fireware. You just plug it in the port on your pc.
Summary: I'll say it again - this is a great camera, considering the price. The video quality far surpasses VHS-C, for a VHS-C price. I've owned this camera for about a month and it has worked as expected right out of the box.
