Summary: Well, was looking for an inexpensive camcorder. Already have one, but the other half wants to make their own youtube videos and they use the camcorder a lot. What I like it this one will do good in low light and even has nightshot for dark shots. Looking forward to seeing that in action.
Summary: Several other people have already written thorough reviews so we dont need another one. I do want to point out a few things I think folks may wish to know. First off, I got this many years ago from Best Buy when it was brand new, and I paid considerably less than 700 dollars.
Summary: This is the first video camera I have ever owned, so it's difficult to glean a comparison. I researched it before I bid and other stated that it was a good camera. I use it in my business ( construction) and It is making me money so far, so that's a good attribute.
Summary: Camera has battery that lasts long. Even though viewfinder doesn't exist and you have to use large LCD if you want to see what you are filming, battery lasts almost 2 hours.You can film blind and make it last even longer. Nightshot plus is not bad if what you are filming is not too far.
Summary: I bought this product shortly after my daughter's birth to capture her precious moments. It is lightweight, and easy to use. The handycam has some cool features and the online user guide is certainly user-friendly. I was able to easily burn a dvd and even create a dvd menu.
Summary: I purchased a Sony DCRSR40 in January 2007 to replace my previous camcorder, also a Sony DCRSR40. Do not fear, it didn't break, it was stolen out of my car! I have been phenomenally impressed with the quality, durability, and abilities of the little machine.
Summary: I love the small size and touch screen. It is very easy to use and only took me a few minutes to set up, charge, and I figured it out with minimal help from the instruction manual. It has good image stability for it's size. I bought it in a package deal..
Summary: The camera is good. Had it 1 week now. Low light it works and produces fair results. Bright light is much better. Small and light weight. You must use the supplied docking station to transfer as ther is no USB port on camera .
Summary: Really like the camera. Just a little hard to download. My brother-in-law bought one after using mine. But he got the download kit from Sony for recording the videos(about $200). That was money well spent. Does Ok on pictures, great on video recording.
