Summary: The Sony was an excellent purchase! I've used it quite frequently and have also purchased some accessories for it. I made the right choice and enjoy using my Sony. I mainly use it at night and with the infrared light I purchased, it works very well. The picture is very clear.
Summary: This camera does not give the user a choice to install a microphone. But, for practical uses, this camera is still a good choice. I bought this product as a gift to my young cousin. But, this is exactly the same model I bought for myself a few years back. I still use it.
The ease of use is impressive and the picture quality is too gud

Excerpt: I am very pleased with my purchase. This camcorder is very light, and is almost the size of a digital camera. For a 60 GB sony camcorder, I can't believe the price I have paid. Recording was of excellent quality. I couldn't find any weaknesses so far. Some people say lack of viewfinder is a weakness, but in all my past camcorder use, I have always used the LCD to view what I am recording, and not the viewfinder even when there was one. So that was not a weakness for me.
Excerpt: We have had this camera for about a month and I just love it. It's easy to use, and so small compared the the camera we use to use. I love the fact that you can play back your recordings on the camera and have sound. It is so convenient to charge. You just place the whole camera, in the base to charge. There is no need to disconnect the battery. It has a huge memory and the fact that it records directly to hard drive is a bonus. No more tapes of even DVDs.
Excerpt: wow this is one great little Camcorder, it takes great video and it is so easy to use and the price tag is not bad. i love my Sony - DCR SR82 Camcorder and it gets a lot of use at my house. i would highly recommend this camcorder to anyone that wants a great little camcorder thats works like a dream.
Excerpt: I love this camcorder! The dock makes it so easy to charge the battery and transfer my videos into my computer to put straight into a DVD. I also love the fact that the Hard Drive is so large that you can store so many videos before you really have to do anything with them versus changing a tape in the middle of filming.
Excerpt: The sony is very convenient, compact and easy to use, however...if it is great video quality that you are after, this is not the camera for you. The set up for transfering files to the computer was very easy, but when reviewing the video, it was not the quality that I would have expected. The audio is not great either.
Excerpt: We bought this camera at Sears and have been thrilled with it's performance. Easy to use, great quality of footage, very portable. The only thing that I am a little leary on still is the ease in which one could delete footage with the touch of one button. Other than that, it's a great camera with clear video.
Excerpt: I love it.... This is the greatest I mean the greatest greatest greastest camcorder. I love it. Did I say that I love it. It takes great I mean great shots. It is wonderful. Everyone needs one. I really mean it, every single person needs one. It is great to save memories of the kids or family events. I love it and everyone needs one.
