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: 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.
Summary: In May I finally decided to replace my old Panasonic VHS camcorder, dating from the mid 80s. I had looked at the Canon, Panasonic, and Sony. The Sony was the most expensive of the entry level models, but I wound up buying it. The lens, made by Carl Zeiss, is a professional quality lens.
Summary: In my pursuit of the perfect camera, at the right price, I spent way too long pouring over online reviews, Consumer Reports articles and digital camera magazines.

Summary: I just got this camera, and have not used it for anything big yet. I will say though, that I love the size, and the little clips that I have taken of my dogs have been wonderful. They were taken inside my home, and I didn't see anything wrong with the quality.
Summary: I did alot of research before finnaly just going with the sony, it seemed to have less options than others I was looking at, but what it does it does better. So far I have used it in complete dark filming fireworks at the beach, worked like a champ, great picture quality..
Summary: i picked up one of these 2 days after they hit the stores and i'm really happy with it. my intention was to buy an older floor model--i didn't realize these were even out yet-- but the second i picked this one up it blew the competition away.
Summary: I received my Sony DCRHC20 Handycam a couple of days ago, and it is everything if not more than I expected. I needed a relatively inexpensive, compact, digital camcorder. The HC20 is one of the smallest Mini DV format camcorders to hit the market this year.
Summary: This is a great little camcorder. It feels sturdy, is lightweight, and I can hold it in one hand securely. The video is also quite excellent. I was debating whether to buy this or one of the Canon ZRs.
Summary: I purchased the Sony DCRHC20 camcorder over the weekend and am very happy with it so far except for the bundled software. I consider myself a very tech oriented person and I got so frustrated trying to copy the video from tape to pc that I called Sony's tech support line.
