camera is good quality, but the format has been abandonded.

Rod Halverson "Manimal2K", Amazon
30 November 2013
  • Summary: I have always like Sony products; however, they have a tendency to introduce new formats only to abandoned them in short order. At first I liked this camera. It offered a lot of options in a small package, but now you cannot find any drivers or software that will take the microMV format from the camera onto the computer (Either Mac or PC).

Long time user - not satisfied

SuperShopper, Amazon
1 January 2007
  • Summary: I have had this camera for over two years. While the images are accpetable, I am have a terrible time capturing software. If your main goal is video editing, then this camera will be a nightmare. Pros: Small, relatively easy to operate. CONS: expensive camera, expensive tapes, still images are not of good quality when considering a comparable still camera, proprietary format may go way of betamax. No microphone jack, makinig it hard to hear people in crowded area.

Great camcorder with a major drawback

J. Arriaga "ralfberserk", Amazon
6 July 2006
  • Summary: On the time this camcorder was the last hi tech gadget it was an amazing product from sony, but as a user, i found that transferring the recorded videos to any media: pc, dvd, etc is a grea pain in the ass. The micromv format was abandoned by sony for hdd storage and others leaving us practically with no choices for editing and storing our videos.

Micromv:Not for the Serious Computer Video Editor

SuperShopper, Amazon
12 September 2003
  • Summary: I bought the Sony DCR IP220 because of its 2.0 Megapixel capabilities and while I love the resolution that it displays on the TV, I am not impressed with the quality of footage after capturing to computer. Here are the pros and cons that I have found: PROS: 1.Great resolution and great quality video produced (530 lines and 2.2 megapixels). (5 star quality) 2. Digital zoom (X700) works fine using a tripod and produces somewhat clear images.

DCR-IP220 - Good ergonomics, but unproven tape format

Roy Chan, Amazon
13 April 2003
  • Summary: Pros: Small size. Good ergonomics. Screen on back. Still photos. Compact tapes & batteries. Cons: Expensive. MicroMV format may or may not equal MiniDV. Lens could be more wide-angle. I found the camera easy to carry, though I kind of wish it had a neck strap. I think the size is about right - not too small to handle, but still very easy to carry.

  • Summary: I bought my IP220 two weeks ago. The unit is fairly compact and light which I carry to places with ease. The pros: 1. Video quality is excellent, same for the recorded sound qulity which is crystal clear 2. Swivel LCD panel is very easy to use and innovative 3. Touch screen feature works well and is pretty user-friendly 4. The set sits perfectly in the palm and the finger position also fits very nicely with the zoom lever, photo button and record button The cons: 1.

Micro mv??!!

Cryptainer, Ciao
4 February 2006
  • Summary: Ho acquistato questa videocamera tre anni fa a circa 2900 €.. Direte voi.. un po' cara! Beh non posso mica darvi torto, offre moltissime funzioni è vero, oltre a una qualità video ancora oggi eccellente (2,11 Mega Pixel di risoluzione!) però per quel prezzo avrei probabilmente fatto meglio a comprarmi una moto usata.. L'ottima qualità di registrazione viene fuori soprattutto quando la si collega alla presa scart (ma è presente anche l'uscita s-video) della tv..
  • Pros: Molte funzioni - alta risoluzione
  • Cons: Costosa -  cassette Micro mv un po' troppo scomode .  .
