Summary: Loaded with wanted features. Easy to use right out of the box. Battery life could be better. No viewfinder but the display is clear, adjustable and easy to see. Built in memory is more than enough for everyday use.
Summary: This Handycam is the bomb for Paranormal Investigations or those nocturnal encounters when you don't want someone to know you are recording them -_o .The built in IR can be enhanced with an external SONY Model HVL-IRM Battery IR Light and an external attachment arm designed for same.
Summary: I bought this almost 2 years ago, and am extremely pleased with it. I got the larger battery, and the thing lasts forever. Storage space is phenomenal...I can't ever fill it up. Even when the sun is making the screen look like you're taking trash, the video still comes out great.
Summary: I bought this as my first video camera and I cant say I'm disappointed. The battery life is alright if you are not using Nightshot. Also if you use the memory stick instead of the HDD it lasts longer. The display is very easy to navigate and very responsive to touch. Overall ease of use is 5 stars.
Summary: I'm a Musician and I needed a new camera to videotape my concerts. I used to have a Sony HC-26 Mini-DV Camcorder, It was good, but It didn't behave very well on a inside place although for outdors was a gr8 camera...but now I've found what I was looking for...This camera is simply fantastic..
Summary: Plenty of storage, easy to use, good quality for the money. For the average person videoing vacations, birthdays, etc, this would make a good camera. I did buy a larger battery and portable charger for convenience. I gave 4 of 5 stars only because the lens cover is manual.
Summary: Great Technology! But after downloading the movie files to my computer, using SONY software to make my movie, and create a DVD the end product video quality was no better than a VHS tape. I was expecting a lot more clarity being a SONY HD Camcorder.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder for my wife. I found it very easy to use. The video is great. Fairly simple to use for the technically challenged. Good software for downloading. I would definitely buy again from this vendor. My wife loves it--If the wife is happy everyone is happy.
