Summary: I just love my dcrdvd101 dvd handycam it is compact and I get to finalize my produced material and watch it in a compatible ,dvd player and I can thanfer my photographs and videos on to my laptop for editing and media sharing and emails built in inferred for night shots in places with almost no...
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!
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: We also bought this product after our first child was born and loved it at first.

Summary: Unless have no need to edit. This is completely incompatable with non-sony software. It almost works with Adobe Premier Elements, but causes crashes. To use with an Apple, you have to convert the format to MPEG (MPEG4 works best) and the signal is horribly distorted in the process.
with sony the problem starts when you have a problem

Summary: We have had one a few years now, our first video camera dvd. It was easy to setup, try out and plug into the tv or pop in the dvd and see what we took. We love the features it comes with and the editing part we didn't really have much trouble once we read the instructions.
Summary: First of all, for you people with a short attention span - DO NOT GET THIS CAMERA !!! Now for everyone else, this camera has been one of the biggest thorns in my side in recent memory - it started pretty good - it is easy to take video and pictures the LCD screen is good the zoom is above average...
