Summary: Junk. After one year the LCD began to flicker and go white intermittently. Resetting did not help the problem. Can't return it and can't afford a 100.00 + repair. USB cord is too short and difficult to use with some laptops.
Will NEVER Purchase from Eio through Amazon Again!!

Summary: Let me start by explaining that this review is solely as a result of purchasing through such a terrible seller. I bought this camcorder from Eio, through Amazon. It is defective and will not even turn on.
Summary: I'll start off by saying that everything which is said about the product in the description is true, but it is important to know things that the description does not mention. I had a Sony camera before, bought in ~2003 and I must admit that the quality of the last camera was much better in many or...
Summary: I got this camera for a very good price on Amazon . I will say I was impressed by the " night function " and the camera's ability to get very clear video in low light conditions. Being an investigator it was something that was very important to me. I was very pleased.
Summary: I am a videographer for a local High School field hockey program and needed a new camcorder. I primarily purchase Sony because I use the Sony remote tripod. Wasn't sure about switching to SD card format for recording but it has worked out wonderfully. I have 2 Sony camcorders. One is my backup.
Summary: I know nothing about audio and video equipment. That being said, I love this camera because an extreme novice like myself can pick it up and use it with ease and get great video from it. So glad we picked this up before the birth of our first daughter.
Summary: I hate to review gadgetry before I have had a chance to really put it through its paces so I waited five months. I can say that I am 90% satisfied with this unit. I paired it with a 6-hour battery (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0087HSDG6/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_90) and have had no trouble with...
Summary: I do lots of basketball recording & wanted to have a couple of cameras, so that if games were going on at the same time, we could make sure and get coverage of both. I've had lots of different video recorders & have had good luck with Sony so went with this.
Better than the newer models and competitors alike.

Summary: This camera is one of the best "budget" cameras to record in all conditions. Consumer camcorders usually have lots of trouble in low light conditions for two reasons, the sensor (the chip that helps the camera to record "light") is very expensive and simply because optics.
Great camera. Wish it didn't take so many sony proprietary cables.

Summary: Fantastic quality video. Very user friendly. Highly recommend getting a tripod when you get it. Use it for shooting sports and it does awesome. Wish it didn't take so many sony proprietary cables.
