  • Summary: Awesome, very hard to find ,but found one and it works very well, but like anything like cameras, they still need to be serviced, that's normal. Pleased with purchase.

Amazing camera

Glenn Moore, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camera yesterday because I was due to make another impulse electronics buy. While I was not surprised by the quality of the Sony product, I was surprised at how many features they packed into to this little camera.

small size, poor video quality

Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: I really like the small size, easy to take anywhere. I was hoping to download the video to my computer & burn a DVD-R of my video. Movieshaker (included) is the ONLY software to date that works with this camera.

Not what it promises, SHAME ON SONY

foyt, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a neat little gadget that is totally useless. The mpeg2 format is a Sony proprietary format that is different than regular mpeg. You cannot upload the movies onto your computer and there is no software support other than the enclosed "Movieshaker" that is horrible.

Look out, this isn't DV

Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: Actually I really like the camera, it's small size, the lens, and the features. But what I want to share with everyone is that this is NOT a DV camera, it is MV which means your DV software will not work with this camera.

small is good, but there are some gotchas.

GizmoFreak, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: I was sold on this camcorder due to it's very small size and the fact the it can be held like a pistol (even tho it doesn't really have a pistol grip). It does NOT have the typical side strap holder. These always gave my hand a cramp.

Small has its price

Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: Sony does a fine job of telling you of all the positives for such a small camera. But they fail to tell you of some of the weaknesses that come at the expense of the small size: The microphone is on the top of the camera near the back.

Worst product from Sony ever

William E. Dunn, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: I already own three Sony Digital 8 and two Sony mini DV cameras. So why do I need a third format. It is a long story. I had read a lot of bad stuff about the new Sony MicroMV cameras before buying the camera, but I had to buy one anyway.

Nice small and compact camera!...Perfect fit.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: This camera is small sleek and very nice! I own a digital camera, Canon s40 and its hard to believe that a camcorder could be relatively the same size. What really sold me is that this camera is not a heavy huge thing to lug around.

Great product, but format requires learning curve

Alex, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: A lot of people complain about the MicroMV proprietary MPG2-TS format, but with the right tools, it's not a problem at all. You can use a program like XMuxer to transform the MPG2-TS Sony file into a standard MPG2-PS file usable by 99% of editing programs.
