Great video, so-so camera when it works

Smardt, Amazon

  • Summary: Like other reviewers, I researched this purchase carefully and was very pleased with the overall performance of this combination video/still camera. Video quality is great. Some issues - buttons are designed for holding the camera eyepiece to the eye.

Great digital camcorder!

moonray_u, Ciao
26 January 2006
  • Excerpt: This is my second digital camcorder and I have got more than what I expected form this Sony camera. I have always been a Sony loyalist, I have a still camera and a DVD home theater made by Sony. However, I did a lot of research before buying this digital camera.
  • Pros: Compact, lightweight, Sony brand strength
  • Cons: no headphone/microphone jack, does not use older memory sticks

Sony Handycam DCR

aj4luton, Ciao
4 September 2005
  • Excerpt: The new sony handycam is an unbelievably good buy. All your functions are there and the fact that you can put the disc straight into your DVD player is an added bonus worth £250. It makes it so easy for a novice like me to be able to show friends and family edited software.
  • Pros: Best Handycam ever !
  • Cons: Some tricky features including changing pixel size

A must have

miggins, Ciao
31 May 2005
  • Excerpt: After using this little camcorder for just over a month I can honestly say it's one of the best I've used. Sony have pushed the boat out on this one. A few gripes maybe, the lack of headphone or microphone sockets and the menus can be a bit fiddly, especially if you have large fingers.
  • Pros: High quality lens, easy to use, feature packed
  • Cons: Menu screen takes a bit of getting used to

Ruido en las grabaciones

SantiHerranz, quesabesde.com
16 December 2007
  • Excerpt: Hace unos 6 meses que arrastro un problema con la cámara y por fin he encontrado la solución. A veces la el sonido de la grabación tenía un ruido muy molesto que recuerda a sonido de freir. No en todas las tomas y de manera arbitraria.
