Summary: My wife wanted to tape a family event and I opted for this model. I never used one before but the set up and operation was easy. I have yet to read the manual from cover to cover but I was able to get up and running without it. The video came out nice in dim lighting.
Summary: This is Sony's first attempt at the world of Digital 8 media. While the more expensive version are better, this one is great for its price. It has multiple recording modes (black & white, solarize, etc), night shot & super night shot, and color shot for a list of features as well as a light.
Summary: It may not be listed in Apple's iMovie Compatibility list, but it works perfectly for me on my iBook 700 combo drive model with OS X v10.2.6. Just plugged it in, launched iMovie and it was instantly there...another great OS X experience!
Summary: I have had this camcorder for about a month and have really been empressed.Though you cannot transfer this to your computer well, connecting it to your TV is chrystal! It does not have the static sound to it. It is a great cam for those who are just wanting the best for their money.
Summary: I purchased this camera for work as a replacement for another Sony. I am very impressed with each feature that has been improved since our last purchase. The zoom is excellent and stays in focus quite well. The nightvision works better than advertised and the microphone is awsome.
Summary: My son and I love to go ghost hunting together. He just turned 21 so I'm grateful for a way to keep connected to him. But, being broke as we are, we can't outfit ourselves like the guys on the cable channels. We look for ways to rig up gear as cheaply as possible.
Summary: This is a very good camcorder for the price. I have had mine for several years and still works good especially for what it has been through. (I had to recover it a couple times from people who "borrowed" it from my daughter, and a couple of times from the pawn shop because of my daughters.
