Summary: We tried this camcorder because we wanted to video our kids growing up. It is very simple to use, perfect size for carrying, and you can watch your videos as soon as you tape them. The only bad thing is the battery seems to die quickly and always needs to be charged but we have two so it's ok.
Summary: What I like: this camcorder is lightweight, great for movies & pictures. Easy to use. I've taken it on vacations and it works great in all weather conditions, overly sunny, rainy, fog, snow, and heavy winds. It's fair for indoor action as well. I'm the worst person for handling camcorders, I usually shake the picture making everyone dizzy. Using this camcorder, I've noticed there is less shake to my pictures.
Summary: I found it very easy to use. the resolution is great for home use. The Picture packge software worked as advertised, but when I shut the computer down, it hung with an error. According to the manufacturer of the software, they do not know if there is a conflict when using MS Windows XP media center OS. It worked fine with windows XP professional OS.
Summary: I've purchased this camcorder a month ago and it was one of the best buys in my whole life. Movie quality is better than you could expect (at least beeing an amateur like me). Still quality is not so good. I saw digital images taken using a digital camera and colours are much vivid than dcr-dvd203 (remember you are purchasing a camcorder) Easy to use: 10. I had never used a camcorder before and this camcorder is EXTREMELY easy to use.
Summary: I have been very happy with this camera since we got it. The only potential negative would be battery life, although I don't hvae much to compare it with. Picture quality and ease of use are great. And it has an easy button, which geuinely works.
Summary: This little thing is wonderful. It takes great shots and video. Nightshot makes it easy to tape in the dark as well. Very small and very easy to use, on screen display of settings makes it even easier to use. No small buttons to fool with. So simple and easy to use. You can take video and pictures in sepia, black & white, pastel sketch, old movie and mosiac. Will also shoot across a basketball court making it look like you was out there with the players.
Summary: There is currently a known issue with many of the Sony Camcorders. This is being called the "black screen of death". What happens is that the camera works great for 1-2 years then the CCD goes out like a light. The camera will not take video again. Sony is evasive if not downright deceitful about this issue when you call tech support. The fact is Sony does not stand behind their product.
