Summary: I have been searching for a replacement for my Sony DCR-TRV310 Digital 8 which is a great camcorder but difficult to carry around when traveling. I do a lot of video editing on my older Sony Vaio RS530G PC, running on XP SP3 so I ruled out the new high definition cameras.
Summary: After a lot of searching and comparing I decided to purchase the sony handycam dcr-sr68. I was starting a documentary business and did not have a lot of money to get going, so cost was a factor. I am extremely happy with the quality of video I get from this lightweight camcorder.
Summary: I couldn't believe Sony came out with a large hard drive camcorder, a zoom capability beyond my expectation and the famous Carl Zeiss lens. My only disappointment was unavailabile extra batteries. I like to have two on hand, especially when an electrical outlet is not nearby.
Summary: I have not used the camera extensively, but I am pleased so far. The picture and sound are great - the zoom is unbelievable. The only thing so far that I have a complaint about is the touch screen monitor. If you have large hands, it is difficult to use.
Summary: I bought this with 3 basic needs, 1.I wanted something compact, 2. I wanted the capability to take pictures. 3. I wanted it to have a night vision light. You would think these 3 things would be easy to find in many cameras at a decent price range, but they were not! So how did this fair up?
Summary: This camcorder is very much worth the money you spend. I love the large capacity of the hard drive and the fact you can also add a SD card for more storage. The picture and sound quality is excellent. It is very ease to learn how to use it. Even my 8 year old daughter has learned how to use it.
Summary: I was trying to decide between this and the ZI8 camcorders. The ZI8 was cheaper and HD but didn't offer as much. I was able to try out both of them at a local store and was very dissatisfied with the ZI8 so ended up getting this one. I couldn't be happier.
Summary: have not used the camcorder for anything big, but what I have taken has been very clear and easy to use even for me as I am not hep on all the new gadgets, It is very small and cute, I love it. I am using it next week on a trip so will know better then, but as of now would buy it again.
