I love this little handy cam

Boricua787, Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: I love this little handy cam. It's great for family gatherings and events. It gets pretty shaky though when you try to zoom all the way in, even with it on a tripod. We used it one night on a full moon and it was really shaky but what footage we got looked pretty damn cool. You can take stills out of them the battery lasts long. Easy transfer to the computer to edit. For the price I paid- It was a good buy and works great. No regrets.

Great Little Camera

Shaun Lay, Amazon
31 December 2012
  • Summary: This camera is being used for paranormal research, filming in low/no light. The IR light that's built in is a pretty good light source, but you will need another IR light source, or two. Picture quality is really good, and transferring your footage to your computer is super easy thanks to the the cam having a HDD. On a side note, the Super Nightshot feature on this cam is not really usable.

Very nice

Ron Stewart "Ron", Amazon

  • Summary: I've only played with it for a little bit. It is a gift for our daughter in collage. I think it is perfect. Easy to use. Small. Plenty of hard drive. No CDs! I plan to get a memory card just to make it a tad easier to transfer. But it isn't really necessary. Item was used. But in excellent shape. I think we got plenty of bang for our bucks.

  • Summary: Merits: 1. It's a Sony! (Brand value). 2. Compact and light-weight. 3. Carl Zeiss lens. 4. hard disk memory, easy to transfer to computer. 5. I got the refurbished one from sonystyle.com for 300 bucks. Thats pretty cheap for a 40x zoom HDD camcorder from sony. 6. Motion picture quality is good. Demerits: 1. Does not have a view finder. 2. The Still picture quality is not that great (As indicated by others too). 3. Does not have a neck strap (Or any provision for that).

  • Summary: I regret buying this camcorder. Video only looks okay when shot outside in the sun. If you shoot video inside, it looks very grainy. Forget about taking pictures with this camcorder since the resolution is so low. The pictures look awful! I'm buying a different one. Don't waste your money!

  • Summary: Very Low Quality and Blurry. I would compare the quality of this video camera to the standard video camera you get from a cell phone. I am going to try to return this camera.

  • Summary: I bought this unit relying on the reputation of SONY and never thought SONY could offer such a bad quality video on his handycams. It is awful. It is a real lemon ! I won't recommend to anyone to buy this model. Sorry SONY but you just deceived me !
