Summary: I pretty much bought this product to record my brother's soccer games and to take pictures. I love the video quality but the picture quality sucks! This is my first camcorder and i love everything about it except the picture quality. I wish i didnt spent the 240 dollars on it though.
Summary: It's a great way to save memories of some great happenings. It has great lens quality,along with a long lasting battery. Very handy in size. You can store it in almost any pocket. It's done great to transfer pictures of finished projects across the nation,online.
Summary: This camera was a gift for my 14 year old daughter. She has no problem using the camera for pictures or videos. The software that you install on the computer puts all the pics and videos in a calender according to when they were made. I really like this feature because it organized all your pics for you. You also get the software to burn your videos directly to a DVD if you choose to. Overall I think for a basic entry level camera this is a pretty good one.
Summary: I just got back from a short vacation to southwestern United States. I took this camcorder along fully charged. I used the recorder everyday, during full sun, shadows, inside, and evening lighting. This little camcorder performed flawlessly. It has a super picture. The battery life was incredible, I didn't have to recharge the battery once in the 5 days I was away.
It works pretty darn good especially for the price...

Summary: Length:: 1:26 Mins There was an issue in one of the reviews about whether or not you could pull the videos directly from this Handycam into a Mac, and you can't if you try to read the files off of it like it's a drive -- the format is more Windows friendly -- but if you use iMovie it imports the files in directly and with very good quality.
Summary: video quality is pretty good considering price. Compact size makes it easy to carry. Still pictures with zoom tend to be a little blurry. Lcd touch panel tends to get dirty with finger prints. Overall it suits my neeeds.
Summary: I chose this camcorder first for the name: Sony and second because I needed a relatively inexpensive but good quality camcorder for amateur use. A video camera that allows me to record school functions, vacation and fun videos that I could import into my Mac. This camcorder fit the bill! So far I love it! Works great with iMovie and the video quality - standard not HD - works great for me! Since I don't require HD video, I didn't shell out more money for the HD version.
Summary: This camera performs like a champ right out of the box. I set it up to record a high school basketball game, and it worked smoothly. I still have some figuring out to do on some of the features - the fade function still takes several steps to use, but I'll eventually figure it out. We came home and plugged it in to our 42" TV, and watched the video with no problems. Today, I burned a DVD with the "one touch disc burn" feature and in a few minutes, our DVD was ready.
