HDD Camcorder

  • Summary: I ordered this camera specifically for a vacation I went on right after Xmas to Fiji. I was impressed with the time it took for the battery to recharge. I had a spare battery but never had to use it during the trip at all. Overall, the camera is good but one feature that really bothers me is that when taking photos with this camera in dark places the lighting is poor.

Far from perfect.

  • Summary: I've had this camera for 5 days now and am not too happy with the video performance. I have an older Sony TRV118 Super 8 camera and the video on it is at least as good as this one. Forget about taking nice videos unless the lighting is VERY bright. Outdoor videos are semi fair if you don't mind a bit of fuzziness. The bottom line is that even in the best lighting situations the videos are not all that great.

Nice little camera, unless you are a Mac user

  • Summary: I will start with the bad first...... This camera and included software is NOT Mac compatible. Not to say you can't use it with a Mac, just not as easy as it should be. From what I understand many other Sony products are Mac compatible (including DV tape based video cameras), so I am not sure why their HDD cameras aren't. The Manual only explains how to transfer images to your computer using the included software.

PODRIA SER MEJOR EN SU PERFORMANCE

  • Conclusion: HAY CAMARAS DE IGUALES PRESTACIONES Y MEJOR DESEMPENIO. MIRAR Y PROBAR ANTES DE COMPRAR.
  • Pros: PEQUENIA, AGIL, BUENA CALIDAD DE IMAGEN, PRACTICA
  • Cons: BATERIA Q DURA POCO, SISTEMA DE CORTE DE FILMACION QUE APAGA EL DISCO RIGIDO CON LOS MOV. BRUSCOS. DEBERIA SER MENOS SENSIBLE.

Una buena camara solamente

erarias, Ciao

  • Summary: Me parece una buena camara aunque nada despampanante, ya que las grabaciones se ven muy buenas conectandola directamente al televisor y no tanto en la pc o sea que no iguala a una filmadora de buena calidad de vhs, de todas maneras es muy comoda, no gastas en discos ni en memorias, recordemos que tiene un disco de 30 GB, y memoria expansible, la bateria dura unos 90 minutos y no puede usarse hasta que termine la recarga, otro punto positivo es que filma muy bien aun sin...
  • Pros: la comodida por su tamaño
  • Cons: las filmaciones no son de excelente calidad, solamente buenas .
