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: 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.
Summary: If you want an easy to use camera just to do the basics, this one is great. It's lightweight, and the one touch DVD burn is a really nice feature. The image quality seems fine-no complaints so far!
Summary: The camcorder is great. Good picture quality, easy to use, organizes your videos by date, easy to play back on TV, and remote makes it very convenient. Battery life is fairly good, but you may want a spare if you'll be recording for more than a couple hours at a time. I can record the highlights of an all day family outing and still have battery to spare. The software really falls short, I wish it were half as user friendly as the camcorder.
Summary: We recently took this camera on our trip to Yellowstone. Camera worked in temperatures of -30. We really love everything about it but you have to watch to make sure you turned it off. We have several incidents of camera recording car's seat. It has Excellent zoom ability.
Summary: VIDEO/PIX QUALITY FROM SONY PRODUCT IS AMAZING!!!. ZOOM AT X12 IS GREAT! HUGE MEMORY! JUST GOOD ENOUGH TO MAKE A MOVIE THAT I CHERISH FOR A LONG TIME. EASY , FRIENDLY ACCESS ON THE TOUCH SCREEN PAD, SOUNDS IS GREAT WITH 2 CHANNEL AND OPTION OF 5.1 CHANNEL, IM IMPRESS!!!. ALL IN ALL, IT'S A GREAT PIECE OF HARDWARE THAT WILL CAPTURE YOUR MEMORIES THAT WILL LAST FOREVER! DEFINITELY RECOMMEND.
Summary: I absolutly love my SR80. I can not imagine using anything but a harddrive based cam from now on. I took alot of video in short clips (surfing footage) and the fact that each shot is stored in a seperate file is priceless. It is so easy to review, sort, delete and transfer. The same process would be a nightmare using other recording formats. It is also perfect for me because it is very "point and shoot".
Summary: This camcorder does capture good video. But the main drawback is that it records in MPEG2 format (DVD quality). Initially its nice and easy to capture video and watch it on your computer by downloading the files using the USB 2.0 connection. It gives you instant gratification. But after capturing 4 or 5 hours of video, you will notice that your videos aren't so great as you expect it to be. Its not the fault with your camcorder.
Summary: Just bought this camera from Circuit City about two weeks ago. The first camera I had to return the next day because the image on the LCD was stuck upside down. The camera powers up pretty fast and you can begin recording in just a couple seconds. I love the fact that you can browse through the video and play anything on the fly. I would have thought at this price point it would take better still shots (only 1mp)but that wasnt really the reason I bought it anyway.
