Summary: Ordered the camera because of the reviews and they were right. Very nice camera, takes great video and easy to use. The small controls on the touch screen are a bit difficult for big fingers but I manage. I'd recommend it so far.
Summary: Bought this camcorder after researching the different formats. Mini DVD is the easiest to work with for me. This camcorder has some awesome functions (touchscreen, night mode(children love this one), big ZOOM!
Summary: Okay, this is my first camcorder purchase. So what do I know about camcorders to be writing a review. You're right, not much. All I can tell you is for someone that has never owned a camcorder I was surprised at how easy it is to use, and the picture quality is excellent.
Summary: Nice cam for the price. Has all the features i need for making home movies. using the usb and software that comes with it, its very easy to import to a PC to edit. I love the touch screen and that it lets you record in widescreen format.
Summary: I bought this for a present for my sister-in-law and brother-in-law for their baby shower. They loved it and have already been putting it to great use. They love how you can record directly to the DVD's and play them in your DVD player w/o having to run it through the camcorder.
Summary: I researched into camcorders and this one for the price is an awesome value. I love to make a movie and then its ready to play back on the tv or computer.The clairity and color are also awwesome.Its easy to use once you read the booklet.
Great price/value, picture, features, and reliability!

Summary: The 'other half' and I have had this incredible Sony camcorder now for about 6 months, and already have made about 40 'mini DVDs' of our now 2 year old. The 40x zoom feature and picture quality is excellent, and the camera does fairly well in low-light, much to our surprise.
Summary: Everything works well with this camcorder. The only difficulty for me is that I''m left-handed and the controls are definitely set up for right-handed folks. That said, I can manipulate the controls, but my learning curve is a little longer. The 40X zoom is terrific.
Summary: After taking it on a vacation and using it, this is a nice little unit. Two problems I've noticed - it does not like non-Sony discs... and will not format Memorex discs for example. Also the LCD screen is very hard to see in sunlight.
