Depending on purpose, it can be a good little camcorder

Summary: First off, the only thing that's missing from this camera is a light!! You can basically forget about filming anything in low light because it will not turn out very well at all. Even if you are indoor with lights on the picture still isn't very bright.
Sony DCR-SX41 will definitely work with a Mac computer !

Summary: -- This Sony DCR-SX41 will definitely work with a Mac computer, at least a late model Mac. -- For $[...], I bought this Sony DCR-SX41 flash memory camcorder with 8 gigabytes of non-removeable memory, a slot (empty) for more user replaceable memory, and a 60x optical zoom.
Summary: I have not used all of the functionality that this camera provides as I just pulled it out of the box and started recording things, an aspect that I really like about this camera's ease of use.
Summary: I bought the Sony Handycam camcorder so I could save memories of my family and children. This itam is not the top of the line camcorder but is not lacking in performance. The camcorder is light weight and small. The picture quality is great.
