Summary: I wasn't paying attention to the zoom (10x) when I ordered this product because I was blind sided by all of the great reviews. I'm not sure if I got a bad camcorder, but I was not satisfied with this purchase. The pictures were horrible and the video recordings were mediocre to say the least.
Summary: I could not use the software that came with the handicam and I tried five other programs and none of them could access the cams video or controls - It may be possible to link PC and handicam but I don't have a degree in science fiction.
Summary: The Super Nightshot is a bit distorted.Dont mistake the flashing lazer like dots for anything unexplainable.If you keep a steady shot in the night sky you will notice them blinking around.As you move the cam you can clearly see them follow your shot.If your recording you will also notice them in the...
Pros: Great picture... Lots of features.Amazingly bright in very low light conditions. I really enjoy the Super Nightshot w/infrared...Look out!!! UFO's Everywhere!!! :-)
Summary: This is my first camcorder which I purchased based on the reviews here at Amazon. A few of the reviews complained that the small touch screen would smear after touching it with fingers. Not an issue. Just a light touch with the fingernail does the trick and - no smear.
Summary: My mom (not a tech savy), 55yrs old love this thing. I teach her the basic and she remember it. Once you read the manual, its not that hard to have the right setting. Overall, if you can afford this than wait out. I'm into video and editing and I preferred the Sony HD 1080i camcorder.
Pros: The video quality is what you expect from a portable camcorder, but better quality than other camcorder at the same price range.
Cons: after 2 months my LCD touch screen stop working, you can see the menue but u cant touch it. Good thing I bought it in store and 1yr store extended warrenty. If you use poor quality DVD disc, it will rotate really fast making loud noise. I preferred FujiDvD or SonyDvD disc, they had higher quality...
Summary: I shopped and shopped around looking for the Best Mini DVD Camcorder. After much searching, I came across the Sony 405. This is a terrific camcorder for the money. It is very easy to use and offers many great features. The camera is very small and great for travel.
Summary: I ordered this from amazon. Got it quick. Had problems from the begining. Turns out there was a issue with the cd drive and it destroyed several mini-dvd-r's. Sony support was horrible, non english speaking people, went thru there troubleshooting steps with them on the phone and ate a few more...
Summary: I have had this camera since August and I wanted to use it enough before I reviewed it. First of all it was about $300 cheaper here on Amazon then anywhere else. I took this camera to Knobles, football games, hayrides, etc. This camera has been great.
