Summary: I decided to buy a handycam for a project. I love this little camera and it works 100% perfect. Turned it on, popped a tape in, it recorded. Walked into a pitch black room turned on night vision and wow, works great seen everything without a light.
Summary: i own this camera after upgrading from my first sony: a HC21. I like it a lot. It takes clear outdoor videos, Indoors i have to turn on the "back light" features to get a clear pictures. Besides, i edit the video on pc. I love the firewire port for best video quality. I make my home video look like a profesional just with this non-profesional camera. i have 2 extra batteries and an extra wall charger, for a serious amateur like me it is worthy ti get what i need.
Summary: This is my second Sony MiniDV camera (my dad dropped and broke my first one). It works great and provides good quality. There are lots of great comments and reviews out there, and I won't repeat all that stuff. Here are a few quick comments: - It's small enough to fit in a belly-pack or fanny-pack. That means it's easy to bring along. Cameras left at home don't deliver very good results! - I thought having the 40x optical zoom would be awesome.
Summary: This camera is easy to use, easy to handle. I have small hands and it is lightweight, fits snugly in the palm of my hand and takes great videos. The instructions are simple and, although the camera is capable of alot more complicated uses, for a grandmother taking videos of grandchildren just for the fun of it, it works extemely well. I would recommend this highly to anyone who, like me, is a novice. I can't imagine I will ever outgrow it!
