  • Excerpt: This is a very expensive camcorder, and has nothing to do with others.
  • Pros: Light weight.
  • Cons: Very expensive camcorder and format. The zoom and rec/standby buttons are few ergonomic.

  • Summary: If you plan on doing any DV editing, do not buy a Sony MicroMV camera. It is the MicroMV technology that you cannot edit like 'normal' DV cameras.
  • Pros: Small Size, Can Zoom in very close, Cool Effects Generally easy to use
  • Cons: WILL NOT WORK WITH MACS!!! Noticable compression, Expensive Tapes, Zoom button is pretty touchy...

small size, poor video quality

Amazon
29 June 2002
  • 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. You can export video from movie shaker in several formats so you can import into Pinnacle,Ulead,etc. Problem is the video quality is rather poor, especially if fast moving object in video. I do not recommend this camera.
