Great Camera!

THE 'Older Than Dirt' Time Traveller, Amazon
17 December 2012
  • Summary: I'm sixty-three. Took me a very short time to realize that the only thing it DOESN'T have is a HDMI in and out cable, but I ordered one, MSRP $39, from Amazon for a great price. Speaking of GREAT PRICES, I paid $99 -- brand new -- at the PX for my camera...

High quality camera

BigAL88, Walmart
26 October 2012
  • Summary: I work in communications, so I have been producing videos for quite some time and this camera can rival high end cameras at half the cost. No your not going to be making Hollywood style films, but it is more than enough for regular people who are not making films for a living.

Blah

Cowboy M., Newegg
7 March 2012
  • Pros: Nice size and buttons are positioned well. There is a USB cord hidden in the hand strap that is always there when you need it. Genious!
  • Cons: Video is very jerky and is stored with a really weird format. Had to use a special video player just to watch the videos.

DOA

D. L. Cardon, Amazon
1 February 2012
  • Summary: The camera was dead on arrival. When powered it was able to perform only a few functions but was essentially locked up and dead. Even the open - close lens cover opened then stayed open; never closed. No amount of working with it changed the situation.

HD at a reasonable price

Michael F., Newegg
30 January 2012
  • Summary: I replaced (so I thought) an older Hi-8 handycam with this, thinking the smaller profile would be better to handle. With the requirement for the LCD door to be open in order to use, I effectively doubled the thickness of my old camcorder.
  • Pros: HD, good lowish light performance (not great, see other comments). Sony brand. Plays well with Win7
  • Cons: Have to keep the viewing LCD open to record. Cumbersome touch-screen menu system. Did I mention cumbersome touch-screen menu system? Owner's manual.

Sony Handycam

  • Summary: It worked. Only problem is that the screen is hard to see in sunlight conditions. Need five more words. Stop.

Wrong Camera Sent :O

Angel Calixto, Amazon
13 November 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this camera but instead I received a CX160, I did not notice until I saw my computer detected it as a CX160. I thought maybe it was just a mistake but as I took a closer look at the camera itself, I noticed it was not a mistake.

Be Warned!

SupaCat, Amazon
13 November 2011
  • Summary: Before purchasing this or any Sony camcorder be warned that their HD file types are very hard to convert or use outside of camera playback mode. This is particularly true if you have an Apple computer. Your videos, as nice as they may be, will only import into iMovie.
