Stay Far Away from this Product

  • Summary: I bought this camera about 8 months ago. Since then I have recorded with it for 1 hour. The recording quality is great, mind you I am not a videographer. The issue I have is that the automatic lens cover will not open any more.

Bad HD video quality

  • Summary: The camera looks nice, small, pretty easy to use and has good sound pick up. BUT.. the video in HD quality at brightest perfect sunny day light type scenario is not sharp and crisp like you would expect from a good HD quality video.

Be warned!

  • 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.

poor upload and time

  • Summary: Got to be the most difficult camcorder. 30 seconds of video took 1:15 minutes to upload to YouTube. I keep trying to read the manual for instruction and what did I miss. It too is horrible.
