Simple, great quality, and fairly easy to use.

  • Summary: This is a great camera. The overall quality is great for a small and simple Handycam. The only thing I wasn't satisfied with was the LCD touch screen. It responds to touch perfectly fine but it goes from normal color to blue a lot. In other words it flickers between normal and blue.

camcorder

  • 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. When I asked the seller a question about the product after delivery, I never got a response.

So so effort

Kevin Whitehead, Amazon

  • Summary: Camera is light weight and has plenty of functions, however, the softward to burn the tape to CDR or edit the tape is terrible. Basically, I can only hook up the camera to the TV to watch the video.

Good quality, Easy to Use, Though Not for Value -Minded (Part 3)

  • Summary: Spend the little extra to get the HC30 since it offers more than $50 worth of features, compared to the HC20.
  • Pros: Easy to use, compact, touch-screen LCD, priced decently
  • Cons: Weak on manual controls, HC30 offers more features for a small jump in price

It's completely a joke

T. Tran "pickyguy", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder based on the high rating on this site and Circuitcity ratings and it's on the way back to the store after two days trial. I want a good simple Cam to tape my baby and HC20 got my attention due to price, Sony brand, sony famous lowlight performance, digital transfer and specially small. Pro: - USB, Firewire video/audio transfer to PC - Small, easy to carry around. Con: - Video and video quality. - Low light performance is useless.

Is there something wrong with mine?

"puddinpal", Amazon

  • Summary: Well the camcorder is aesthetically pleasing, but the software is just plain horrible. My boyfried is a computer wiz and couldn't figure it out. We had to install it three times before it even loaded all the components. Now my computer runs really slow and it takes about 10 minutes for 2 minutes of tape to transfer. As for the still photo, you can shoot it without the 7 seconds of sound. It's in the manual.
