Summary: This was a replacement for a similar camcorder that broke down. I usually only buy new, but I really loved the camcorder that broke. Nice size for holding and great video results. The used camcorder works perfectly and came with all its parts plus some. Although the viewfinder only shows black-and-white, the fold out screen shows full color. When this one poops out, I'll probably look for a DCR-HC42 which tapes in 9:16. This one only does 3:4.
Summary: The camcorder works great. He uses it in his mad eye in the woods. He likes it for the night vision. He already has one so this a great addition to his other one to get two views in the woods of his deer.
Summary: I have had two of these cameras. Both cameras broke down when it came to the playback feature. That feature is controlled by the touch-screen. Both cameras tough-screen features failed. I would not buy another one.
Excerpt: The thing you have ot remember about the camcorder is that it is an entry-level camcorder so for me it is perfect. I am by no means a professional video recorder. This camcorder is small enought to fit into the palm of your hand. Its lightweight and portable enough to tkae just about anywhere. The battery life is excellent and will give you up to about two hours when fully charged. It has 8GB of internal memory.
Excerpt: The sony handcam is a very easy to use camera. I use the camera all the time to record family and sporting events as memory. Its easy to put it on the computer and edit. Plus it has its own edit system on the camera. Zooms very far and auto focus is on it plus night shot. Very affordable cam and love every thing about it.
