Summary: No Mac software, I guess Sony just hates Apple. I just wish Apple made video cameras. You cannot simply transfer video files to the Mac, you must instead connect the camera and suck the video out using iMovie. It apparently transcodes the video during this process, and it will not recognize the AVCHD files directly.
Summary: Amazing camera! I've been using it daily since it got here. The Battery Life is only 110 min which is to short for me so i went a head and ordered a NP-FV100 for it which is suppose last around 7 hours the only other negative thing i can say about it is that it doesn't record in 30 fps so i have to cut the frame rate down from 60 when ever i edit videos.
Summary: This camcorder is so light weight and easy to use. I LOVE IT! I have recorded special events and the clarity and sound are very good. I even carry it around in my hand and people don't notice it at all. I am glad I got this cam and recommend it.
Summary: Everything is good about this camcorder except for the 12x zoom and unfortunately that's one of the most important features in a camcorder. This camcorder is fine for birthday parties other indoor events but don't bother recording your child's soccer game or school play because you're not going to be able to zoom in far enough to even see them.
Great Value and Performance with Plenty of Useful Features - Recommended!

Summary: I bought the Sony CX350V HD camcorder on EBay as a little used item. After a few days of using the camera and software I must say that I am amazed how technology has moved over the last few years since my last camcorder purchase. The camcorder is small, lightweight with many features and produces SUPERB video and as a still camera is also more than acceptable.
Summary: I bought this camcorder for student presentations. It works great with my Mac and is easily uploaded through IMovie 11. The picture is clear and recording steady. It is compact and easy to take on the go between home and classroom. I highly recommend!
Summary: This camcorder has excellent video and audio quality. My son uses it in making videos for his college classes, which requires splicing video and audio, it is flawless! Great camera, good price.
