Summary: bought this handycam via warehouse deal , looked and woeks like brand new , going to love it . Only draw back is manual is had to come by have tried to download it several times with the same results .
Summary: Camcorder works extremely well and is very easy to use. I purchased this after losing a higher dollar one of sonys thru an unplanned drop. Camcorder is used for recording family events and high shcool band shows. Works very well with good lighting and fairly well in low light. Excellent optical zoom. I never use the digital zoom. Can be used with dvd but, The memory stick is so convenient that thats the way I always use it.
