Last of a great feature

A. Rosen "internet shopper", Amazon
16 July 2010
  • Summary: This is the last series (thru 21) where you can stop action frame by frame at 1/30th of a second (for things like gymnastics, tennis golf). Sony's new HD cameras eliminated this feature.

Where's my memory stick??

Lacey Amos "Lacey", Amazon
21 January 2010
  • Summary: I love it, it's almost all I could have asked for...but when it says "AND MEMORY STICK", I expect to recieve a memory stick! I only got a tape to record. The whole purpose of buying this was to not have to worry about tapes and all of that confusing organizing that comes with it. Where's the memory stick? Take that off of the description if you aren't going to send it!! It really upset me!

Good camera for a Good price

paparazzi83, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using this camera for almost 3 years now, and I can say that it's a little workhorse most definately useful for family videos and can handle small projects for family, friends, and if you need to make a video on the cheap to get into a film school! It's a 1 CCD and it shows, and the quality of the CCD is also not the greatest, but hey what can you expect? :) I despise the fact the tape loading/unloading is from the bottom.

Bad tape technology

johnny2bad, Amazon
23 December 2003
  • Summary: Before you buy, think about the cost of the DV tapes. They are about $6 each, retail, and EXTREMELY fragile. One broke in my camera, and damaged something when being taken out. This was a $70 repair, while it was still under warranty. I don't know how much it would have cost after warranty period was over. If I had it to do over again, I'd buy a camera with a sturdier, cheaper media, and from a manufacturer that respects its warranty.

Excellent Camera

Luis Suarez, Amazon
12 December 2002
  • Summary: I bought this camera six months ago. A wonderful camera indeed, very compact but very powerfull, lots of features, still going over the manual!!! the bundled software is very basic, however with a more powerfull software you can do wonders. If you plan to edit with your computer, the firewire cable is a must. The only complaint I have is the included battery, it doesn't last very long, so a bigger battery is also a must.

it works

Lacey Amos "Lacey", Amazon
3 December 2002
  • Summary: picture quality of video was good. digital camera pictures looks horrible. not recommended for someone looking for a digital camera and camcorder in one package. in fact, only a fool would do something like that. works right out of the box even under windows xp. connect the 6pin to 4pin firewire cable and windows xp automatically detects camera. works with windows movie maker. simple, easy, and reasonably priced.

A very good camera but it has some cons...

Giraldy Rodriguez, Amazon
2 October 2002
  • Summary: I had this camera for a few months already so far i have no complains about it. Is very easy to used and it has a lot of features. But there are a few problems with this camera which may affect ur decision on buying it: Firstable Sony doesn't include the firewire card which allow u to transfer the DV video to ur computer.
