Summary: This is a really lovely camcorder. Very easy to use, excellent picture quality and seems (at first) to be very well made. Unfortunately, after shooting less than an hour of video and a few still shots, the LCD screen on mine failed completely. The camera is currently back with Sony for repair. I'm not sure when I will get it back, although since I've owned it for only a few weeks, I really think they should give me a new unit.
