Summary: I got this to replace a camera that had been broken by a student at school. The price was great and the parent willing to fork out $100. It works just as good as it's "stepbrother", which is like new!
looks good..but poor picture quality-poor color quality.

Summary: I was really excited to get this. I always wanted a video camera. The video camera itself is just not as good as I hoped it was going to be. The picture quality is really not very good at all. The colors of the pictures and the videos are so OFF it's ridiculous. It will not pick up purple colored clothing and stuff at all..the color purple always comes out as blue. All colors are just off.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive video camera to capture family vacations and moments and this fits the bill perfectly. It is not HD, but when I play back the video on my HDTV, it looks great. The resolution may not be as good as the newer HD cameras, but the picture quality is much, much better than the lower tier HD video cameras.
Greatr little camera - highly recommend for travel

Summary: Great picture quality - purchae a longer life battery - extremely lightweight and so easy to use fully. Best idea from SOny in a long time. Would highly recommend for anyone who wants to take pictures/movies with professional quality.
