Owned for over 2 yrs and Never had a problem.....

Stephen Truitt, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera the day my daughter was born over 2 1/2 yrs ago. I paid about 250 for it but the advertised price was 450. I guess it was on sale. Still not sure how that happened but no complaints here. The zoom is great, the dvd quality and video is great.

Don't Expect Perfection for the Price, But This Is A Solid Camera

Cap'n Stoob, Amazon
15 June 2007
  • Summary: This camera is perfect for people who record family events once or twice per year and need things to be foolproof. This thing is wonderful for casual recording, though you'll definitely want a multi-pack of DVDs, since the limited time can make changing discs a constant event.

Still figuring it out

Kim M. Abe, Amazon
15 June 2007
  • Summary: I love the camera itself. The only problem I am having is putting it on a dvd. I have a machine that I can hook the camera up to the tv and dub it straight to a dvd only can't figure out how to do it, but I will.

Great starter camera

D. Meyer, Amazon
15 June 2007
  • Summary: Sony sent me this camcorder for free for playing the Wheel Watchers Club daily giveaway. For a free Handycam, you can't do much better than this. I have good news and bad news for those who are purchasing this camera. First, the bad news...

Great camera

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Some settings are slightly confusing, but the camera is fairly easy to get setup & running... it even has an EASY button to set everything automatically for you!
  • Pros: The NightShot feature is awsome, I can take nice wildlife footage of critters in my yard at night that my camera couldn't capture in low light
  • Cons: Bring lots of blank mini cds with you

Sony becoming a nuisance

William C., Newegg
20 August 2006
  • Summary: Sony wants you to buy their discs so every time you turn it on if you don't use a Sony disc there's a nuisance message telling you to use Sony discs. Sony says this cannot be disabled so I'm returning it for something else.
  • Pros: Good camera quality, easy to operate, touch screen
  • Cons: No 16:9, no remote, no card

Good for general use

kenneth s., Newegg
10 March 2006
  • Summary: The camera itself is great, but it really sucks that it only takes the Mini-DVD discs which are very expensive and don't hold a lot of data. Newegg rocks!
  • Pros: The quality is pretty good for an amateur level digital video camera. You get a good amount of features for the price.
  • Cons: It's kind of misleading. I thought it took full size DVD discs, but in reality it takes Mini-DVD discs which don't hold as much video on them, but are still twice as expensive. A pack of 3 mini-dvds will set you back $xx, where as a 25 pack of standard DVDs will set you back $xx also.
