Summary: I really can't write too much of a Review on this camera because when I got it, it did not work. The person that sold it to me did not take the time to put in a Mini tape to see if it even worked. When I put a mini tape in it I got a Yellow blinking number in the middle of the View Screen...and none of the controls on the camera would work...Of Course I did not get a Owners Manual with it....Now I see why..
This is a great value now that people have moved into HD.

Summary: Excellent, lightweight, beginners camcorder. Good stability control. Teenage son found easy to use for skateboard videos. This was specifically the camcorder he wanted after he researched it. Great gift!
Summary: I needed a third camera for documenting concerts given by our community chorus. I have an older Sony Handicam, DCR-VX1000, which has worked very well over the years and this newer model will help make our final edits much more interesting. Picture quality is excellent and every thing works fine, only problem was some bubbles under the lens when the camera was aimed up at the ceiling.
Summary: The camera produces a picture rich in color and resolution. The features are many and has the ability to adapt to any and all enviroments of shooting, Really outstanding low light capability which other makes lack. Features automatic and user settings for picture perfect shots. Light weight and attractive looking, I know you will enjoy working with this camera for what ever reason your needs.
