Keep you fingers crossed, never drop it on the floor.

Summary: Overall speaking, good camera. But, it will cost you a fortune (US$880) to repair it, if you drop it on the floor. I was also planing to use on my Dell computer as a WebCam via the firewire port. No, it didn't and doesn't work. After being pushed back and forth like a pingpong ball by Sony and Dell, final explaination was that this camcorder could not be used as a webcam through the firewire.
