Very Much an Average

  • Summary: I haven't written many Amazon reviews in the past. But I'll write one for this product simply because I feel that I am very much impartial after using it for almost 7yrs. When I spent a lot of hard earned cash and was finally moving up from VHS to HDD camera, I was thrilled. And yes, when I got it, I loved it. Mostly due to the fact that I can record hours and hours worth without any problem. Remember, this is not an HD recording.

Good for recording< not so for pictures

  • Summary: This is a great camera for videos, it's easy to operate & it's light & small. I thought having the still photo option would be awesome, I would only have to carry 1 camera for every thing, but not so. I have taken several hundred photos with it & most are not good quality...the only ones that are good are in perfect lighting conditions.

A little disappointed

Robert Garrett, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had several Sony products over the years and have always been impressed by their quality and features. I must confess to being a little disappointed with my SR 87 Camcorder, though. Here's why: -- The picture resolution is not as good as I expected. -- The LCD screen is not very bright. It's hard to see in bright lighting. Wish it came with a viewfinder for these situations. -- I also wish the fader feature was a little more user-friendly.
