Summary: It was not as new condition as I expected....since it was told that the item was in the shop for display only.....Since no accessories is provided so please add the price and then think whether it is economical or not?????
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.
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.
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.

Pros: Camara compacta, Zoom de buena capacidad, Barata
Cons: Sin calidad de imagen en situaciones de poca o mediana luz, Sin lampara o algo parecido a nighshot
