Summary: It's not HD, but I like it. It doesn't have horrible quality, 480p I think. It makes a good camcorder to start out with. It's good for filming life's little moments. Although the digital zoom is a joke.
Summary: A big improvement over the last Sony cam we bought, with simplified controls, etc., but the screen is way too dark and there doesn't seem to be a way to adjust it so it's easier to see what you're filming.
Summary: This camcorder takes great video. It does not take great pictures. They come out blurry or too dark. I love how easy it is to upload to my computer. You don't need any special plug ins. My old camcorder made you buy a drive to install into the computer.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder before a family vacation because of the video and photo capability. It takes great video, and the features are very handy, however, the photo quality of this camera is simply awful. All of the photos we took were grainy, low light, and very poor quality.
