Summary: i give it 4.5 the quality is ok for a camcorder that is not HD i used this camcorder for paranormal investigation and it work`s really good for the price is great you need a infrared light for ghost hunting unless you want to used the super night shot it work`s great with my phantom infrared pro. i recommend this camera get the higher battery the one that comes with it only last 2 1/2 hours.
Summary: I love this camcorder because it has everything I need and more. It has a huge HDD drive that gives me plenty of film time. I love the fact that I can take photos w/ it also. The best part is the night shot it has. I like to do ghost hunting and it is the exact thing I need. I would recommend this camcorder to anyone. Whether you are just messing around or need it for something professional it will get you through just about any of your filming needs!
Summary: My husband and I enjoy new technology and we purchased this camera two years ago when it was fairly new to the market. It was the worst purchase we have ever made. We were enticed by the "one touch burn" and fast transfer promises for backing up on our computer. We lost the software to the camera a few weeks after we purchased it- and we had not loaded it on our computer. Sony nor Pixella will replace the software. You can purchase it for $65.
Summary: We bought this camcorder in 2006, it's perfect for us! The hard-drive can store many hours of video and the zoom is great! The 12x zoom is so good that the 1MP still shots can actually look somewhat impressive (but don't get rid of your digital still camera!) I can't imagine how awesome the 25x zoom must be on the new 2007 models. The DCR-SR60 is easy to use, so don't worry if you're not very tech savy.
Spend a little more if you can and get a much better camera

Summary: This Handycam is Great for only one reason - the 60gb hard disk. It means never having to worry about tapes or DVD etc. It's small and light. I returned a Sony DVD handycam which malfunctioned within the first 30 days of receiving it and bought the SR80 instead. I'll focus on the negatives: a) VERY POOR low light performance. Shooting indoors is a pain. For example - you try to shoot a dance floor in a night club - forget - this camera can't deliver.
