Summary: This is our first camcorder. We spent a lot of time researching and reading reviews before making our selection. We want to thank each of you who took the time to write a review on this site, believe me when I say it greatly influenced our decision. The camera is light weight and easy to hold. The screen size is very good for "old eyes" and we really like the touch screen feature. Do take the time to download and read the owners manual.
Summary: Save so much time instead of transferring to the computer from 8mm and you can delete and edit as you go unlike dvd models. I don't feel that I have to be choosy of what I record because there is so much space and I can delete if I don't like it. The touch screen is awesome and easy to navigate. There are not many video effects but the quality makes up for it. Still image capturing is a bit of guess work trying to snap the shot and you end up snapping a different shot.
This product is amazing. Easy to use and GREAT quality.

Summary: I am all SONY. Every camera, VCR, DVD player, or TV I have had, has been SONY. This camcorder is a state of the art. SONY has really improved the way we take pictures and record videos. It is very easy to use and so convenient. It is a dummy proof. If you like high resolution, ease of use, easy transfer and share, easy recording then you will love this camcorder.
