Summary: I'm not happy with this purchase because alot of the things that go with this camera were not in the box. It is missing the following; the lens cover which will cost me $10.00 to replace. Pixela Imagemaker software which I can't even FIND for sale! I'm not sure I will be able to put the films on my computer even! the access (shoe) area cover, I can't even find one of these for sale!! Audio video cable which will cost me at least $10.00 more.
Summary: I am very satisfied with the camera. It works very well. I haven't had any problems with it. The camera has a very good zoom and it is very nice. I haven't used it for recording yet but it is very nice so far.
Summary: product received faster than expected...product received in good condition as advertised..however, the blank discs that were included are memorex and they don't work with the sony cam..sony recommends using sony media products...overall i am satisfied with the purchase.
Summary: I wasn't too pleased with the cigarette odor when I got it but after wiping it down with alcohol and some other cleaning solution it was bearable. It took me some time to work with it and I didn't by the DVD for it right away to see its effectiveness. I took a test segment and it appears to be working fine. Now my true test next will be to see how it transfers onto my computer.
