Summary: Have used this camera in bright light outside and inside with dim artificial light. In both cases, the video was blurry. As others have stated, indoor videos not only lack clarity, but the colors are washed out. The old tape camcorder that wasn't HD provided much better video than this inferior product. This camera is not acceptable and doesn't deserve any stars. Going to have to try something else and donate this one to the thrift shop.
Summary: The camera works fine. But, Windows System 7 - 64-bit does not reconize the camcorder. I installed the PMB (Picture Motion Browser) software and it will not work. I went to sony.com support and downloaded a software update that I thought worked with 64-bit, but still no luck. If you have 64-bit version of Windows 7 - you might want to re-consider this item.
Summary: Our 10 yr old Canon camcorder just died and we needed a new one. Saw a great deal on this one and there was a reason. Quality of the video and picture were horrible -incredibly dark and grainy both on the camcorder and on our tv. The only nice feature was the touch screen. Went back and am now in search of a new one.
