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...
Summary: First off I simply want to state that is about as high quality as you will get from a handycam without getting a professional one. The camera is very durable, the mic is very accurate and wind noise is greatly reduced, shots well at night, and is very easy to carry around.
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.
Summary: This camera was recommended to me by a friend that is a professional video editor. The number one concern was being able to edit the full resolution video and audio on an Avid Media Composer. It works Great!
Summary: I'm very happy with this purchase. I bought it to replace an older Sony Handycam that used miniDV tapes. I liked the idea of using an SD card instead of tapes. The price was right (~$350 at time of purchase). The LCD is large and bright, and the touchscreen interface seems to work well.
Summary: This is second video camera that I bought. The first one was also Japanese I have it from 2005. But this one is very nice, small, tiny, easy to use. I appreciate the most its zoom very accurate and and good image quality.
Summary: I use my Sony HandyCam for news videos and home movies. Most impressive is that I can use the same camera for shooting news videos on [...] while easily taking it to my child's events. In short, this is an excellent camera for its price.
