Summary: This is the second time that I own this very particular Sony Handycam model, and I have to say it is, yet again, an excellent and very satisfying experience, as always, using the amazing Sony Handycam DCR-HC46 Camcorder. There are multiple features that are available with this camcorder, which you don't get in other handycam models and brands, including the magnificent multi-channel input docking station, that also acts as a battery charger, and a whopping magnificent...
Summary: My son is 5 and we are using it to teach him about movies. He is interested in being a stuntman and wants to know how it all works with the cameras. That is why we have purchased the Handycam, great product and simple to use and manipulate.
Summary: I presently own a sony handcam dcr-hc46 and there comes a point in time if you are a serious photographer, a backup of your equipment is vital where necessary.Iam a retired professional photographer but more often than not the simple consumer friendly camera when applied professionaly can achieve remarkable results.
Summary: My wife and I purchased this camera for the upcoming birth of our first child and have been nothing but pleased with it. Although not the most expensive camera on the market I have found it to be very sutiable for family engagments, indoor and outdoor events. Setup and easy of use has been a big plus (even my wife who is technologically inept has been able to jump right in and use it effectively).
Summary: Sony DCR-HC46 MiniDV 1MP : Amazon delivered this product flawlessly. The camcorder is pretty good value ($399)and delivers very good images for the resolution which is, for me, fine despite the 3-4MPs around, and good sound (-comparable with an earlier Sony TRV 33 at double the price which lasted 4 years before failing). Build quality appears good, though much lighter than previous.
Summary: I have used the camcorder for 5 days and recorded about 45min of video. No problems what so ever. I dubbed several DVD +R through the ILink cable to my Sony RG330 DVD Recorder. Out of 3 DVDs NONE have failed. One camcorder option I did change is the Audio Quality, the default is 12bit and I changed it to 16bit. Zoom is great, but the digital zoom you really need a tripod. Great Picture, I love the 16:9 widescreen. For the price I am very satisfied with the DCR-HC46.
Summary: The Sony DCR-HC46 is a terrific mid-range digital camcorder. It has a more than adequate 12x optical zoom (any more and even image stabilization won't remove the jitters). There are quick access buttons on the body of the camera, and a ton of features in the on-screen menus (available only on the swing-out LCD viewfinder). Using your fingers on these menus is much easier than I thought they would be, and most of those features are for infrequent occasions.
Summary: Because there is no reason to complain about this 'nearly' perfect camera.OK, so far I've had a bad experience with this camera (tried to hook it up to computer with USB... got lackluster quality. Tried Firewire... Oops! Guess what? Didn't work! Time to send it back, and I am still waiting for it to return so I can actually transfer and edit something on my computer!
