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.

Works Great in Linux

  • Summary: Works Great in Linux. Plug it in and it pops up as a hard drive. It's in a Standard MPEG-2 Format. Works well with Kdenlive, Blender, FFMPEG, Totem, Mplayer. You can edit the videos while they are still on the Camera.

  • Summary: I have had my camera for 18 months and I must be bored because I know most people will be moving on the latest and greatest and not bother reading this review. However!!! I have to mention something that I don't see mentioned in any other reviews.

  • 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.

Fantastic Camera!

Mike Mcgillivry, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very slick little piece of electronics! It has got its own internal hard drive so there are no CD's to pop in and out. Fits to contour of your hand for better grip. Flip screen is sturdy and useful.

  • Summary: I got this to record my sun. It works just fine. We liked the fact that it isn't too big and the video quality is nice. Only problem is sometimes when objects are moving fast camera gets blury.Can't adjust instantly.

Great Product

John DiTullio, Amazon
15 January 2008
  • Summary: The video looks great and is easy to operate. The "Easy" mode for videotaping makes this a great product for anyone. I mostly use this product for sporting events and family gatherings. Only down side to this product would be the camera features. Pictures don't come out very clear.

Good camcorder with rough power adaptor

S. Zhu, Amazon
13 January 2008
  • Summary: The camcorder is easy to use and produces video with good quality. Its size is small enough to be carried around conveniently during travel. However, one thing compromises the size and quality of the camcorder: the AC power adaptor.

Good for beginners...

  • Summary: Considering the price, function, and manipulation, it is good for beginners. But for advanced users, I would suggest higher level mini camcorder.

Great camera, but not perfect

Pauly Long, Amazon
29 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this from AMZN for Christmas for my wife. I was seriously considering buying the JVC Everio GZMG130 as it seemed the nearest comparable product. I looked at both models closely at Circuit City for quite some time, but ultimately chose the Sony. What I like: - Great size.
