Great Little Camera

Amber L. Regnier, Amazon
3 June 2010
  • Summary: I've had this camera since Christmas of 2004, and it is still going strong. I've thought about replacing it, but with the picture quality still good I decided against it. The only problem I ever had with it was the battery which i replaced last year.

  • Summary: I haven't really used the camera yet. The batteries are not keeping a charge but the camera will serve it's purpose and that is to transfer my tapes to DVD. I had to purchase a cord because it didn't come with one.

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder for its blend of feature and good value for price. I used it mainly for auto track days, recording video from a suction mount and it performed adequately, returning good image and sound quality and acceptable battery life.

Was great - now can't record video only audio

  • Summary: We had this camera for about 1.5 years before it konked out. We can now only record audio. Every blue moon we'll get video for about a minute before it goes black. My husband works in the film industry and this camera was meant to be used at home for the kiddos and he spent hours researching video...

Owned for 2 Years, It's Useless Now

Todd A. Garrison, Amazon
12 March 2007
  • Summary: Enjoyed it while it was working. In December 2004, I purchased this Sony DCR-HC20 brand new from Best Buy. Less than average use, only the occasional weekend stuff and twice a year vacation. Always exercised great care in handling and kept it in a protected carrying case when not in use.

Great camera

Jound, Amazon
13 July 2006
  • Summary: Someone complained about the battery draining. My battery isn't draining and works great. The only two negatives I can find is that the picture stabalization feature doesn't appear to work and all of the manual controls are on the lcd screen so they're hard to use without shaking the camera some.

Not bad but it has since been discontinued...

  • Summary: Just got this at the Sony Outlet at an amazing price (they wanted to get rid of this model)for $280. The outlet only sells "refurbished" items so I was kinda nervous in purchasing this from them. I got the $20 3-yr repair plan (do not bother with the replacement plan!

  • Summary: This camera is GREAT! I have had it for only for 5 months and still no problems whatsoever. The touch screen makes for very easy film viewing and easily-understandable operating. The night vision is a very cool feature, it works well.
