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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

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.
Excerpt: Не рекомендую для использование полное разочарование частями захвата и записи, что то не досчитали инженеры SONY.
Pros: Очень комрактная, легкая. Простое управление. Хорошее сжатие конечного файла.; Батарейка штатная достаточная (90 -110 мин. съемки в режиме без остановок), оставшееся время высчитывается точно. Оптика отличная обещанные 60Х выдает четко!
Cons: Видео снимает отвратительное, фокус устанавливается порядка секунды, цвето передача срендяя, процесора явное не хватает, фотоаппарат Canon 460 снимает лучше в разы, хоть и при более низком разрешении, а стоит в два раза дешевле. Управление простое, но только через дисплей, что при активном исполь...
