Sometimes the old things are better than the new stuff.

Summary: Back in 2003, I would have given it 5 stars, currently, 4 stars. That's how great this wonderful piece of technology is. Why four stars now? It's about change. Mini DV tapes are on there way out, hdmi is the new flavor. Component/composite cables are really not supported any more.
Summary: this is the best camcorder hd i ever use with the stuning hd video ,clear like crital and shiny like diamond eventhought it use a hdv tape it is still pretty good .i would recommended this for wedding short movie ,interview and video music.sony it is just the best in video camcorder ,i mean to say...
Summary: After using Sony EX1 and HDV-Z7U this camera seems inadequate. Do not get me right, this is a great camera, but it is a starting point. Great for students or family videos, even short films. I just became really spoiled!
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls
