Summary: The Pros: Ok firstly just want to say this is a gr8 little Cam! The Picture is a decent quality, the sound is good too, (with zooming mic...makes for better sound) The Battery is......so so, however we purchased the extra life battery (also on Amazon)and that really boosts performance.
Summary: I bought this before Christmas 09 to replace my trusty 10yr old Panasonic which sadly and suddenly failed, despite it having cost a fortune and was classed as state of the art 10 yrs ago!! This Sony is fantastic and far superior. It is very small but has tremendous zoom and is so simple to use.
Summary: Yes it's a good price for a camcorder with a huge internal memory. It's got a pretty good zoom, it's easy to use, it's small and light and it has a nice clear LCD screen -BUT! You will need to buy a bigger battery, although the one supplied should last 90mins - it doesn't.
Summary: I've been reviewing lots of models before selecting this one but i'm happy I chosed it. This handycam is compact, much smaller than i would have thought, elegant design and does what its says on the box. The zoom is powerful and autofocus on faces work brill. The price?
Summary: Following a lot of research and having read all of the positive reviews for this camcorder on Amazon, I selected this model and having used it during a recent holiday in the US, am thrilled with the results.
Summary: One of the main reasons I bought this camcorder was to record my daughters wedding, which took place on a sandy beach in the north west of Scotland. The venue was perfect and the weather warm and sunny - ideal for a movie record.
Summary: This camcorder goes for £269 in John Lewis, £233 on Amazon. Great piece of kit, very easy to use. If you want a basic HDD camcorder then this is the one to go for if you're not looking for anything too fancy.
Summary: Very pleased with the camcorder so far, it was bought to film my son in a band and the results for low light filming have been good. Have yet to see day light results!! The HDD means I can let the camera roll and edit the footage later. Delivery was yet again quick, well done Amazon.
Excerpt: When it comes to gadgets and electrical equipment, my partner is quiet adamant about which brand makes he buys and will always go for Sony or a few of the other brands, but likes to go for the same brands and he’s always wanted a camcorder.
Summary: The HandyCam is nice little gadget and is good under lowlight too. easy to operate and has got nice zoom feature too. The only downsid which could be my mistake of not noticing it earlier is that the lens needs to be opened seperately and is not part of switching on process.
