Sony camcorders are a nice brand to own.

shambaugh9124, Ebay

  • Summary: I purchased this to be able to play the movies I made of my kids growing up and my last one quit, there is not anyother way to play these tapes so I needed the camera. My only problem with the product right now is trying to get my computer to recognize the camera so I can make another type of storage of the movies. I have always liked the quality of the sony camcorders and I don't have any other type to compare it to because I have only ever owned sony.

Fantastic Camera

Amazon Customer "jvgreene", Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this camera in 2008 to take on vacation. It takes me forever to decide on electronics to buy because I am very picky. This camera has lived up to all of my expectations and more. I was not in the market for a professional camera. I wanted a good to better quality camera to film trips, sporting events, and everyday life. This camera does it all. It takes amazingly crisp video as well as still images.

IR is cool

Pat, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the IR on this. I only gave 3 stars for Picture Quality only for cpature to Computer. There is a loss of color. I bought new high end firewire and it's a tad better. I use several Video Editors with the same loss of color in all. Oh the Macro is awesome. You can get real close and its clear at about 1-1/2 inches...better than my other cams.

Great Features

Scott Hildenbrand "Re@ctance", Amazon
15 March 2009
  • Summary: Length:: 1:15 Mins This camera has great features but I mostly purchased it for work with time lapse. I posted a video of one of my time lapse videos and have this camera always filming more. The camera works so well I ended up getting two. One for personal film work and the other for time lapse. Night vision is pretty good and with added infrared lights you can get some nice night shots.

Sony Handy cam DCR-HC62

ascribe, REVIEW STREAM
1 January 2009
  • Excerpt: I am very fond of Sony products and bought Sony Handy cam DCR-HC62 immediately in the first week of its release. It is really a prized possession for me. Its performance is simply great and no other company is able to match the standards. I can also make Cds of my movies completed. My handy cam also has the ability to shoot still digital snaps of 1.07 mega pixels, which is of great use and comes handy during emergency needs.

Great camcorder. MiniDV makes a lot of sense

S. Sen "sens", Amazon
31 December 2008
  • Summary: Great value! If you want great picture quality just less than HD, miniDV is the format. Think again about your priorities before buying a non-HD DVD or HDD camcorder as MPEG formats are lesser than miniDV in pic qty besides their other limitations. *** The dcr hc-52 is widely available in stores. But look at hc-62 specs(much better resolution) and spend $50 more to get a much better product. Put a filter over, yr lens will benefit a lot.

Perfect home movie camera.

D. Mitchell, Amazon
14 November 2008
  • Summary: Love this camera for both home movies and still photos. With a 1 gig card it holds over 2k images on high quality. The battery life is excellent, although I still recommend a second battery. The video quality is outstanding for home movies, on board mic pics up sounds great. I would suggest a case to put this in, as well as extra battery, and plenty of tapes. It has replaced both my digital camera and old camcorder.

Great camera, excellent time lapse feature

Adam D. Shomsky, Amazon
25 June 2008
  • Summary: Length:: 1:49 Mins A big part of the reason I bought this camera was for its smooth interval recording (time-lapse) feature. Strangely, Sony's higher end high definition camera HDR-SR5 does not have this feature. I have been quite satisfied with this feature's flexibility and user-friendliness.
