Summary: I am so pleased with this camera! We love it! And the ordering and delivery was fantastic. We bought it for half the regular price. After coming home from our transatlantic cruise, it was unbelievably easy to burn a disc directly from the camera!
Summary: Love the camera but when I contacted the seller, they said I could hook up a small boom mic. This is not the case so I had to return the boom mic I ordered along with it. Great cam for the price I bought it for.
Summary: I was going to Vegas and needed a camera/camcorder, I saw the Sony DCR-SX45 Handycam; took it to Vegas and WOW.....the pictures....Great; the video......Prefect, just a all-around great camera. Looking a quality camera, it a Sony....enough said!!
It works great and I got it for a good price, but . . .

Summary: It's not HD, so the video quality isn't super like I was used to seeing. I got it as a refurbished camcorder, and it's everything I was looking for within my budget EXCEPT it's not HD, but I knew that when I bought it, so I think that what I got at the price I got it, I like it.
Summary: I'm still learning to use it, but I got some great video of deer under a yard light at night & a large flock of turkey durning the day. Still have a problem with keeping it on target because it is so light, quite unlike my old VHS that weighs 3 pounds & I could rest it on my shoulder.
Summary: The camcorder was bought to record some interviews and later to be used for general videos. It worked very well for the interviews with excellent image quality and color balance. The audio was good but not great with the built-in microphone, something that I expected. I have tried to use it for other general videos with a fair number of action shots of animals, planes and other moving targets.
