Summary: I have had this camera for three months now but haven't used it that much, less than 10 hours record time. The zoom has failed on it and it needs repair. The parts are covered by warranty but not labor. So I have to pay for service to fix the camera after such little use.
Summary: This camcorder is fine, but it suffers from one MAJOR flaw: The built-in microphone is only so-so. What is a video with mediocre sound? Make SURE you get a higher-end model with a sound jack that allows you to use a seperate mike.....
Summary: First off, thanks to Amazon and Tri state camera on your excellent return policy. I'm sure this camera works great but not including an ac charger!!!!! That's ridiculous! Charging via usb is fine but what if you don't want to lug your laptop on vacation??? I promptly returned this product!!!
Summary: This video camera might as well be from the 1960s. The picture quality is absolutely terrible. Sony should be embarrassed to sell this with their name on it. It is absolutely the worst quality picture I have ever seen in a video camera.
Summary: Not at all the quality I expected, given the name on the label, and the listed features. Returned after first few attempts to get a usable video or of it. Either get a slightly more expensive model, or much cheaper model. The quality just isn't on par with the price.
Summary: Camera feels & functions like Very Cheap build quality. Video Quality Very Very Poor ! Motion tracking is distorted & pixelated. No external Mic. So U get lots of camera & operator noise. Low light video is very grainy. Auto focus is Super Slow, So U get lots of Blurry footage.
Proprietary software to view videos. I sent it back.

Summary: I should have known Sony would be the one to be able to keep you from sticking your Memory card in your computer and pulling the video directly off it. Since I use Linux Mint, that is not an option, and I'm not downloading their software to use it on a Windows 8 box. It's OK.
Summary: It is a piece of junk. Not well designed. On automatic focus it focuses on closest subject matter; on manual focus you have to constantly re focus. Does not reproduce well for large screen TV viewing.
