Summary: I have owned a few Sony Handycams in the past and was always pleased with them, but this Handycam is awful. Of course the battery that comes with the camera only lasts about an hour before it needs to be recharged if you are using the camera a lot. The picture quality is awful, my Sony CCD-TRV118 Hi8 Handycam has better picture quality and more functions than the Sony DCR-SR68. The Sony DCR-SR68 doesn't even have a remote control, it's 2010 how about giving us something.
Check system settings; Leftys & Mac users may want to think twice

Summary: 1. The video quality is acceptable; be sure to check your camera's system settings, however, as the default is NOT the highest quality - which I found out after recording a 90+ minute concert. 2. The controls were a little counter-intuitive to me; I kept finding myself zooming in when I wanted to zoom out, and vice versa. This may be a uniquely personal issue, however, because I'm strongly left-handed and this device's design is oriented solely for right-hand 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? This camera is one of the most compact, even smaller than I expected. 2. It's picture taking ability I was least impressed with. It was pretty grainy. 3.
Summary: I purchased this camera at a store, believing the SONY brand name and previous good reviews about similar Sony camcorders. There are several flaws to this product. Cons 1. Picture quality is very poor, Indoor and outdoor pictures in good light appear with a bluish tint all over. If you wear a white /gray cloth it appears bluish on video. Like wise the sunlight coming inside your house through window /blinds all appears light blue!!
Summary: OK, I have read an awful lot of bad reviews on this camera. I have to say it took me a while to figure it out. It imports in MPEG format. This is an acceptable and widely used format even for television networks. The software you use also plays a huge factor in the quality of the video. I always use Sony Vegas software to edit and import in NTSC DV (720x480, 29.970 fps, with best rendering quality, and deinterlace method is set to interpolate fields.
Summary: I bought this at a store, not Amazon. I read good reviews about earlier models, and was a bit hesitant to buy this camera because a few people said the video quality was bad. I took the risk, but they were right. The video (and digital picture) quality are unacceptable. Even in decent lighting, the pictures are very dark and grainy, as if they were taken by an old webcam. Even at high quality, there was no improvement.
Summary: Length:: 3:13 Mins I'm disappointed in Sony's response to my camera's errors. I would expect a much better response. "Buffer Overflow" problem, along with lost data. Hard drive errors. I would not recommend anyone to purchase this camera.
Summary: Sony DCR-SR68 80GB Hard Disk Drive Handycam Camcorder The Sony Handy Cam that was purchased in 2007 was easier to use and had many more functions to use. I wouldn't necessarily buy the new DCR-SR68 again.
Summary: First of all I would say that I love this product because it is very convenient to carry, I have purchased it from the Amazon during thanksgiving, and I have not gotten any problem yet because I have not used it much.However I tested it's picture quality looks me good,but I am not satisfied with the sound; it seems to me different than the original because I compared it with my voice. But overall this product is really good.
