  • Summary: I really like this camcorder for several reasons. It is small enough to carry around alot and catch many precious moments. It is easy to use and takes excellent, clear recordings. I love the still picture capability and the quality of those still shots. I would recommend this camera to you!

Sony Dcr-hc65

Lisa Akbari, Amazon

  • Summary: I got this camera for $430 at circuit city. I don't think its worth $800, but it has some great features if you can find it for a good price, since it is last year's model. I love the big touch screen. Its really easy to use. The supernight shot plus works great. This camera can see better than me in the dark. Picture quality is good and if you get an upgraded battery (only $20 on ebay) the camera can run for a long time.

Not worth the $$$

Clint Weisbrod, Amazon
13 January 2005
  • Summary: I bought the DCRHC65 after trying out the DCRHC30 thinking the larger CCD unit would make a difference in low-light conditions. But I wasn't able to see any difference. The design of this camera sux. The input / output cable ports are located in difficult spots. The tethered lens cap is ridiculous. Too heavy. Consumes battery too quickly. If you're considering this camera, compare it with the DCRHC30. The only big difference is the pixel memory and CCD size.

Really good camcorder

Vikky, Amazon
11 January 2005
  • Summary: My initial impression of the HC65 are generally very favorable. I like the feel and balance of it, and the controls are laid out nicely. The LCD display at 3.5" is very nice, and the touch screen is nice as well, being reasonably intuative and requiring only a light touch which minimizes camera movement while filming. I tried some filming outdoors first, close to sunset, and had great results in the Easy mode.
