Summary: This is a great camcorder. Everytime I need electronics the first brand I look for is sony and I have never been dissappointed. This Camcorder has great picture and sound quality,and you can't beat the price offered by Amazon so don't bother looking at other sites. It is very easy to use and very compact. The hard disk is incredible and the screen is crystal clear. I do recommened buying the bag and battery package also,I did and don't regret it.
Summary: Not a specialist on camcorders, I bought a SD camera because I didn't feel like spending so much money for a HD one... bought Sony because I'm addicted to the brand... Overall I'm happy with the camera - point-and-shoot. Some advanced controls are there if you want to use them but they do not clog the interface. Easy to operate, buttons are organized intuitively. Night mode is nice, the 25x zoom is addictive! Small and nice design (pity it did not come in black ;).
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: I used this right after a quick charge. Sony keeps adding more advanced features and at the same time keeps the camera easy to operate. Zoom is excellent, and the ability to add and change different lenses is an added bonus. BH Photo by far had the best package around. This camera is great for entry level and more advanced users. The battery lasted a good amount of time, and with 40gb of memory you can alomost never run out of space.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Compact, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Lightweight, Simple Controls, Versatile
Summary: I just bought this camcorder. I used sony dcr sr 40 and dcr sr 42 before. I can say that this camcorder is perfect comparing to other two. If you want a better one you should buy a high definition camcorder with a higher price. The only cons: you cannot expect to take high quality pictures with it. This is a common problem in most of the camcorders.
Summary: I bought this camcorder after a lot of research and I'm glad I made the right choice. The only camcorder comparable with SR65 was the JVC MG330 or MG360. JVC 330/360 has less than 1 mega pixels and the price difference between the two was not much and I found it was worth spending on the extra resolution for better video quality.
Video Quality : Very Good. I ve taken video Outdoors and Indoors.
