Summary: Kind of a dud. Camera is supposed to be HD and it is about the worst quality video I have ever seen. My dog has a petcam she wears from time to time and even her videos are much better. Save your money and buy something that works.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: Wow, we read the other Amazon reviews thought we were getting a good video camera, especially since we have good video editing and codex software. Not true, this camera cannot focus at a distance, nor does it focus during a zoom.
