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 take my camcorder everywhere and enjoy it. I received it for Christmas 2 years ago and love it. Best purchase/present I think we ever made. It takes the best pictures. The colors are so beautifull and vivid. More so than in real life.
Summary: I bought this for myself. But my son has four kids and I ended up giving the camera to him. I have no little kids no more but when I did I was always taking video. I used this cam a bit and it was great.
Summary: This is our first camcorder. We bought this for our twins who were born recentely. The long story short, this is a good deal. I spent about a week researching and decided to buy this for its user friendliness, DVD, price and qulaty. I made a good choice.
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: Easy to use, pretty much just point and shoot. Glad I had read reviews from other consumers regarding the lack of a complimentary disk. That's the least Sony could have done, considering the cost of the camera!
