Good while it lasted

Shauna, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: We got this camera Christmas of 2010. I wanted a camera to be able to shoot home family movies and stuff like that. We didnt end up using it as much as I would have liked, but I did really like it when it worked. Very easy to use, very compact and easy to take places.

Sony camcorder drawback

  • Summary: I almost threw the new camcorder in the trash on the way out of the granddaughters trackmeet. One of the main reasons to purchase the camcorder is to video record the grandkids sports events.

Great overall package killed by poor video quality

RJLII, Amazon
28 July 2010
  • Summary: Our 1995 Sony camcorder finally bit the dust so it was time for a new one. We only use the camcorder for personal use so we were looking for another basic, easy-to-use camcorder in the $250 range. After spending some time researching camcorders the Sony DCR-SX44 camcorder seemed like a perfect fit.

Poor Video Quality

T. Brewer, Amazon
13 June 2010
  • Summary: I've used Sony products for years and this is the first time I had to return one. This camera was very disappointing. I shot video at the highest quality level and it was still fuzzy and the audio was out of synch when I downloaded it into my computer.

  • Pros: Very compatible, small and easy to use. Looks great.
  • Cons: The battery doesn't work. The first time I tried to charge battery, I couldn't do it. Tried to contact with customer service but couldn't. If I won't be able to contact customer service today, I will return it.

Been through 2 screens now.....

M. LONG, Amazon
4 June 2009
  • Summary: Loved this camera EXCEPT for this one simple problem: we've owned the camera for 3 years and 8 months now and have already been through 2 LCD screens. The "warranty" is 12 months so of course 14 months after purchasing the camera the touchscreen quit working.

  • Summary: Except the camera nothing else is a sony item. Be sure you are aware of that when you buy. Also the tripod is pretty bad quality.

Poor Picture Quality

dave, Amazon
4 June 2009
  • Summary: I expected a better picture quality than this! The camera is really cool. 60x zoom is amazing. Features all work well. Was able to easily transfer files to and from my computer, or to watch on TV. My only complaint is the picture quality. I'm returning this for something different.

Extremely Light-Weight, Flimsy & Minimal Memory

gotomom, Amazon
4 June 2009
  • Summary: Not like Sony's previous version, which was great. This unit has virtually no storage and can't even support a memory card. It feels like a toy prop, too light-weight for me.
