Summary: Very sensitive just a slight hit broke down something inside and all the recordings have annoying noise. At the 60x zoom the picture is shaking so much hard to see what is the recording about. And without any zooming the pic quality also bad.
Excerpt: So last summer we had a bit of an accident with our old video camera. We were in California on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at the end of a very long day in Disneyland. We had taken loads of video of our little girl on ehr first trip to Disneyland when we accidentally dropped the video camera in the back of the boat and it got soaked with water and refused to work anymore! We also had most of our trip on here as well so I was not best pleased.
Summary: I didn't buy my SX33 from Amazon but as I find the reviews very useful on here I thought i'd add my findings too... I bought a high end standard definition Sony DV Camcorder back in 1999 and though the picture quality is very good it's now a bit bulky and I have to dump the tape content onto a DVD recorder before I can get it onto my laptop for editing (as it doesn't have firewire) so I was looking for something small and very portable that uses flash memory that I could...
Summary: All in all I'm disappointed with the Sony x33 camcorder, the video is not very sharp and the colours are dull, video recording is in the interlaced format which makes it difficult to produce good quality videos for playback on a PC and the battery life is only around 90mins, though considering the huge amount of space that the MPEG2 videos take up you'll possibly have difficulty recording that much video in the first place.
