Great little camcorder. Easy to use. Good picture, video and night shots.

Summary: This is small enough to carry in my bag. I was able to take a lot of pictures and video on the memory stick. It wsa very easy to transfer these to the computer. Night shot is good to capture images of those pesty deer at night!
Summary: I first purchased this Sony MiniDV in Octocber of 2004. I had considered other formats such as recordable DVD's and even tapeless but in the end I went with the MiniDV format since I had a good experience with a prior Sony MiniDV model.
Summary: After I recorded a few tapes using this brand new camcorder bought from Amazon, it got snowflake-like noise all over LCD screen. Since I did not use it for the first month after I got it, I could not return it and had to send it to SONY repair center for service.
Summary: I have been researching camcorders for the past six weeks since my son was born. I wanted something that was small, took high quality video, was "connectable" to my PC and would not be outdated 20 minutes after I bought it. While I have only had it for about a week now, I am very pleased.
Summary: I've had this little guy for about 9 months now, and I have no major complaints. While this camcorder suits the needs of those who want good performance in filming normal activities, it may fall short of higher expectations.
Summary: I've owned so many Sony products, this one is a dud. Someone already mentioned the horrible placement of the power in, the little rubber flipper gets in the way of everything. The PicturePackage software is a complete joke. SonyCopy.exe crashes every time I try to open my pictures.
Summary: I replaced a 7 year old Canon HI8 camcorder with this one. I've had the 109 for a couple of months now and here are my comments. GOOD: Size: It is really small and compact. Well built and solid. Motor noise: My camera has no motor noise. Absolutely none.
