Summary: So far, I have been happy with my new Sony video recorder. I bought it because our old one was about 11 years old, gets heavy on my wrist and hand, and it records to VHS-C. This has a USB connector for easy downloads, so we can finally put our kids on DVD for memories to watch later.
Summary: I loved the package and the entire product. The Handycam is basic but allows good HD quality picture. I bought it for my sis who never had a handycam before. I am sure she will be delighted with the product.
Summary: This relatively inexpensive handycam is not a bad option if you want a dedicated video camera for light use, although a few more dollars might get you a much better camera.

Summary: I bought this package for my husband for Hanukkah to record our new baby and so far have loved it. The camera is super easy to use, lightweight and amazingly small and portable.

Pros: Records in nice definition, my parents can use it with the software suite to import and share videos and pictures. Easy to use, easy to browse, organizes videos and pictures into folders automatically. Turns on/off by flipping LCD screen open/close. Comes with a built-in USB cord, so you can't mi...
Cons: Problems with the initial software suite not working and not updating correctly. Be sure to just download version 2 from Sony's website. If you like viewfinders, this is not for you. The only visual is by looking at the flip-out LCD screen.
Summary: Pros: This is good for the shooting conditions I got it for: Low-light performances. Here's a recent show I shot that also a projection element. Normally this makes for difficult shooting, but the HDR-CX190 was able to find a nice balance using the low lux setting and the back light option on.
