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.

Sony DCR SX63

  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace a tape based Sony camcorder for the solid state memory feature. I use a Macbook Pro with iMovie to create my home movies. The camera is very compatible and easy to use in iMovie, however the images are less than crisp. i tried tweaking the settings on the camera and even in HQ (high quality) mode the images are questionable.

Made a Mistake

Disappointed, Amazon
17 November 2010
  • Summary: Just bought it and loved the compact size, functions and ease of use. Thought I bought a great camera until I downloaded the photos and the movies I took on the first day, quality was well below what I expected. Movie was dull, and not sharp at all and I took it at the highest quality setting. Going back to the store today for a refund.

Diappointment

  • Summary: I am very disappointed with the quality of the still photos. They are fuzzy and of low resolution. I also have difficulty converting the video clips into home movies so I can put them onto a CD.

Better Technology Worse Quality

Steixner Review, Amazon
5 July 2010
  • Summary: How is it that camcorders are so much more expensive today then several years ago, but the picture quality is worse? Yes, I know -- now we have hard drives instead of mini tapes, but the picture quality has not improved unless you go buy a high definition camcorder for $600 to $1200! Are you kidding me? You could have bought 6 camcorders two years ago for that price!

Terrible Photos - Good Video

T^n^S "JE", Amazon

  • Summary: If you are like me, and don't want to haul both a camera and a camcorder to events and on vacations, this IS NOT the camcorder for you. It takes really bad grainy photos. I should have done more homework. The HD camcorders can take 3 MP photos. This SD camcorder takes photos around 640k! :( The other issue is the size. It's just too small. I can't imagine this being natural to use for anyone with decent sized hands.

Save All Shipping Materials - Open With Great Care

K. Dipre, Amazon

  • Summary: Double Whammy. I purchased this item from another vendor, but it was not in BOLD BIG type that the camera was in PAL format. I opened the package, took the camera on vacation, then discovered my mistake. After using the camera, and returning home three weeks later, the company would not accept the return because the camera had to be packaged in the original box, with the original bar code. Spent lots of time on the phone and emails trying to return the item.

Encolheu demais

e-bit, Bondfaro
3 December 2010
  • Summary: A câmara ficou pequena demais. Isso faz que a imgem trema e suniram os botões de comando.
  • Pros: Leve, hd espaçoso, imagem boa (mas difícil de manter sem tremer),
  • Cons: A imagem treme muito devido ao baixo peso. O estebilizidor de imagem é mera ficção. O visor é imvisível ao Sol. Os comandos na tela são de difícil acesso. Bateria extra custa uma fábula
