Amazing Video taking but sucky digital pictures

  • Summary: I bought this SR 100 two months ago and I have taken many videos of my new born. The video is beyond excellent. I changed the settings to LP because the files are so big. 5 min of recording I get a 1/4 gig file size!! As far as the digital still pictures I was very disappointed.

Editing nightmare

Enrique, Amazon

  • Summary: Resolution is very good, sound is acceptable, you don't have to carry tapes, etc. BUT, editing your movies is a nightmare!

Sony DCR-SR100 3MP 30GB Hard Drive Handycam

R. Widman, Amazon
24 October 2006
  • Summary: The camcorder meets or exceeds my expectations. Great picture, clear sound, the touch screen controls are great for someone who would otherwise need to use eyeglasses to read and use the small buttons on other cameras. This system also allows for cascading menus. The down side?

Broke down within 2 weeks

Famp76, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera works great. The picture quality is amazing, even when played in a high definition TV. Burning into a DVD was a breeze. Many people complain about the included editing software, but I liked it. It gets right to the point, which is passing your memories on to a DVD.

Beautiful Camera, Not-so-beautiful video

Simon K. Verberne, Amazon
23 October 2006
  • Summary: I recently purchased this camcorder and was really excited about getting my hands on it. I found that it takes beautiful video and still images. The problem I had is after importing the video to my PC. The playback would run for a few seconds then stop. Is seems to be due to the 5.1 channel audio.

Great Camera But Be Careful with Non-OEM Replacement Batteries

K. Grossman "Sony User", Amazon
25 September 2006
  • Summary: First of all great Camcorder. Quality is great even in low light. Transfer to my PC is easy and quick. Overall the best camcorder I've used. So why 3 stars? Simple, Sony has a poor policy when it comes to replacement batteries.
