Summary: I had one Sony before and I like Sony. This is the 1st HDD from Sony and I think that 1st is always the best, because manufacturer always makes 1st the best to attract byyer.

Summary: I bought this video camera because I desired a neat, tidy way of storing digital videos. It is very good for that. And I also used it to copy a VHS onto DVD. Didn't know I'd appreciate that capability as much as I do.

She takes *tons* of movies daily of our twin babies, and we still only have to clear the hard drive about once every three months. Also, since it uses a hard drive, I love the speed and versatility you get when transferring movies.
Summary: Resolution is very good, sound is acceptable, you don't have to carry tapes, etc. BUT, editing your movies is a nightmare! The software provided is almost useless, I have tried with Ulead's MovieFactory 6 Plus and with Windows Movie Maker with no results, and finally I could do some editing with...
Summary: I bought this camera through Amazon as soon as it was released by Sony last year. I've lugged it all over western Europe as well as right here at home in the good 'ol USA and all I can say is it has performed FLAWLESSLY!
Summary: I bought this camera with the blue tooth microphone option for a little more than a month. The following are my quick assessments: *I bought this camera because it is a hard drive version. *The camera did not perform to my expectation from Sony.
