Excerpt: If you are tired of carrying around your digital camera and a camcorder then you will love this easy to use camcorder by Sony . This camcorder is super easy to use, and comes with several great functions that help you adjust the lighting while you tape special moments so taht you don’t end up with dark or crapppy looking video. This camcoder is also great because you are recording directly onto DVD, no tapes, no uploading to your computer.
Summary: I've owned a Sony Handycam before. Four years, to be exact, before sand got into the working mechanisms of the mini dv cassette compartment. It lasted 4 years of ocean moisture, abuse from user, etc. So, to get this camera for less than the price of a high capacity san disc card, I was shocked. I can make this camera what I want.
Summary: Well I bought this camera today 2nd hand with no book and was shocked how easy it was to get working. I figured it all out myself in a matter of 5 minutes I was recording my 4 yr old and 6 month old, put the dvd directly from the camera into the dvd player and instantly they were watching them self's on the big screen. I then put the dvd back in the recorder and without doing anything else pressed record and was recording right where I left off. Very happy!!!
Summary: I love how easy this is to use...I love the Super Nite Shot Plus!! Very handy!! However..the only downside to this camcorder is that there is no SD Slot..so no still pics until you are totally done writing a disk :(...BUMMER!!! Other than that...no complaints..I love it!!!!
