Summary: This camera does everything you would need for the family. This is actually my second Sony DCR-SR220. My first one was owned by the soccer team I coach and it did such a great job filming the action, and taking pretty good stills that I decided to purchase my own. The quality is very good. Looks good on my computer and flat screen tv. Also, very easy to download files to computer.
Summary: Bought the camcorder about 2 weeks back. Was delivered within 3/4 days. Takes great videos and excellent pictures. Also since its quite handy to carry, don't have to take my Nikon Digital camera always. Only con for me is the sound volume on the videos. For some reason the volume sometimes is barely audible if one is not speaking loudly wherease my old Sony Hi8 Camera would capture the slightest sound clearly.
Summary: I film a lot of high school football (at night under the lights) and I bought this camera to replace my mini-DV tape Sony handycam. I'm glad I made the switch although the other Sony did a great job. I get high quality images even when the field lights aren't that bright. I'm switching to Adobe Premiere but I was using Windows Movie Maker to put together my clips.
Summary: good stuff easy to use.
still pictures are not that great but nice enough (i guess 6MP should have been better)
very smooth to use. and no noise in zoom action. touch screen gives added advantage of reduction in number of button on the panel.

Summary: I actually returned the sony DCRDVD 308 and purchased this camera instead. I wanted a camera that worked decently in low light conditions. For the price and without having the camera look like I'm from the local news station, I'm very pleased. I was having problems with the 308 not being able re-focus after zooming in and zooming out in low light conditions.... but don't seem to have that problem with this camera.
