Summary: Camera takes nice video, just be aware that the Sony 'PMB' Picture Motion Browser software is only available for PC. The camera takes great HD video, but only in AVCHD format, which has to be converted with external tools before use on a Mac. Pros: Easy to use.
Summary: I rarely used it, but it was out-of function in one and half years. The Best Buy techincan told me that it needs $199 to fix! So, I gave up by buying a new one. Advice: Don't buy these camcorders!
Summary: The Sony Handycam is a terrible, terrible product. It is not intuitive at all, the user manual is confusing and not helpful, and my number one complaint is that it is extremely difficult to transfer your video files to your computer.
