Summary: I wanted a camera in price range of $150-$200. I was little confused about whether to get camera with more optical zoom or with HD quality. I saw few other models with HD, but optical zoom was not what I was looking for. This one has 70x optical zoom and it caught my eye.
Summary: After using this cam for a while, I'm not so impressed. The focus is not good. For the money, it's an OK camera, but as soon as I can afford to I'm moving up. I bought this camera because I didn't have a lot of money to spend, and, frankly, I've gotten burned too many times by more expensive video...
Summary: I brought this one as a second Camcorder i have a JVC camcorder and my wife uses it.I got it since it was cheap and from Sony but the performance is not as expected especially at Low Light conditions the image is too grainy and not clear.If you are looking for a decent camera i do not suggest this...
Summary: I bought it for my friend who requested with her budget. I never know Sony has such a kind of lousy quality camcorder. Picture quality is the worst I have seen from Sony Camcorder. Very blur when you watch in both computer 23" screen and bigger TV. Sound quality is so so.
Summary: I am not sure what all the positive feed back is about, but when I videotape something I expect it to have a clear picture. This camera even at the highest quality is extremly grainy (indoors and out). Very easy to use, but whats the point if the final outcome is poor quality!! I brought it back.
Summary: Many options to choose from. Menu style is very user friendly. The biggest problem for me was picture quality. I understand this is a standard definition camcorder but in low light or indoors the picture was just to grainy. Outdoors the picture is okay but it could be better.
Summary: NOT VERY GOOD AT ALL NOT SHARP PICTURES WHEN PLAYED THOUGH 47 INCH TV IT IS JUST BLOBS OF COLOUR OPTIC ZOOM IS RUBBISH. Sony DCRSX45ES Handycam Camcorder - Silver (60x Optical Zoom, 2.7 inch Touch LCD)
Excerpt: скажу так.. до этого был опыт пользования камеры с пленкой.. так вот качество съемки на пленку гораааааздо лучше нежели ЭТО ..
Pros: снимает, что при нынешней технике уже тоже хорошо. Легкая, удобная, простая, легко переносить видео на комп. Долгая зарядка тоже хорошо ..
Cons: Качество съемки ЖУТКОЕ! детский концерт на улице при хорошем освещении сняли ужасно! только звук хорошо передает. мой 4й Эппл снимает лучше чем эта камера. Качество фото тоже ужасное. больше скажу.. такое качество, что даже не берутся печатать некоторые лаборатории.. редактировать само видео тоже...
