Summary: Had this little guy for almost 2 years.... Then one day it just wouldn't turn on. Sony wants over 200 dollars just to look at it and the problem is probably a 10 cent resistor. Also the still photos are terrible.
Summary: Lower resolution that even the cheapest Mini-DV, and nearly impossible to edit properly since scenes are stored on DVD. DVD is NOT recommended if you want to do any editing of any kind. See ANY Mini-DV instead.
Summary: If you are looking for a still shot digital camera ok.. but why buy this monster for that? I have a T1 that does the trick there and gives 5MP. Ok, so maybe video? ok, but then why do I want a dvd with nothing but raw footage? cant edit it without a lot of work.
