Summary: I didn,t know the battery had a short turn of life,they only last me about 20 mins what a bummer never had problems with any pruchases before but this was a sad one for me, cloudn,t record my grandaugters firsts steps
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 Mini-DV instead.
Summary: Every time I turn on the DCR-DVD92 if I'm not using a Sony dvd I get a annoying message asking me to use Sony dvd's. This message lasts for about 15 seconds and blocks the entire lcd screen and view finder. If I'm trying to make a quick shot I can forget it. This message is something that Sony should have left off. I feel it's simply an attempt to make you buy Sony dvd's. I have found viewing still pictures also to be a problem.
Summary: Yes, it works well within its (limited) parameters. But, what is the point of making recordings that you can't copy? This limitation was not mentioned by the salesman at Circuit City. When I went back and complained about this, they sold me $100 of software to allow downloads to my computer, for editing and copying, which did not work. The best I can do is copy discs to VCR tape. Also I have suffered the "black screen of death" others have mentioned.
Great when works; sad story behind Sony's "warranty"

Summary: I purchased this item in advance of my first European vacation. I read the materials in advance and anticipation of capturing the wonderful sites ahead. The handycam gave out after about 20 minutes of use: the screen went totally black on the right half without any explanation. Thankfully, I purchased the unit from a reputable source who exchanged the product without question within the first 30 days.
