Summary: I have an HD Sony that crapped out just before Christmas. Needed an inexpensive option while I see what the other will cost to repair. The picture is not that great, but I'm comparing to my other camera.
Summary: I am really enjoying my Camcorder. It is such a clear Recording. I like it better than any other one I've ever had. I like it because I have no more problems with my DV tapes. Because I am not using them. I am connecting it to my DVD recorder,with the cables I also ordered.
Summary: Great camcorder, made the mistake of using the middle of line quality to save space on the hard drive when we went on vacation for a week, I could have gone for 2 weeks and still have hard drive space. Great zoom but, better use a tripod on max zoom.
Portable and convenient, but very poor picture quality
4 February 2011
Summary: We bought this camera to film home videos, nothing professional. When we got it, I was very pleased at how small and easy to use it is. But when we actually started filming, the picture quality was very, very poor (not even youtube quality).
Summary: Really good video camera. It powers up quick. Easy to use. Very good video quality, not HD though but I knew that before purchasing. The low light video quality is not great but is still decent.
Summary: This is compact enough to carry around and at the same time big enough to get a good grip. The 60 GB HDD is enough as I download the videos often. The clarity is amazing in outdoors as well as indoors and even at night. The only thing I do not like is, the LCD must be used all the times!
