Summary: This Sony Handycam really is awesome. One of the best products I've ever purchased. Really like the ease of use, performance in low light and full 1080P. I was impressed at how well these little cameras did! Full HD and easier to use than my Flipcam.
Summary: We found our DCR-SX85 Handycam 16gb 60x for $129 new from B&H Photo. What an awesome buy! You can buy the high def version, but it will be $400. The zoom goes out to 70x extended. We went after this model handicam after a couple from our church video recorded some teaching films.
Summary: It took me this long for this review because the camera was a gift for someone living in a foreign country. So i couldn't write until i heard from them. The camera is in excellent condition, being enjoyed by my friend & his family & i hope it continues that way. Thnx for asking.
Summary: Well I have read all the reviews here and elsewhere about this Video Camera... truthfully Im glad I took the chance on it. I bought it from somewhere else and paid.. 199 for it. AT THIS PRICE or even the Price that Amazon is asking for this fine Camera its a steal..
Summary: about 6 years ago, we got the sony handycam with the flash memory. it recently died and i decided to look for a new camera, even a new brand. i asked many friends about theirs- what they liked/disliked. we all have cameras in the same price range (200-500 bucks). it was the same complaints..
Summary: This handycam camcorder was the first I ever bought, so I can't really compare it with any others. But, I have noticed that the recorded picture is remarkably still, despite one's shaky hands! And I was able to take clear pictures through my car windows.
