  • Summary: ... be SURE it has an ENGLISH display! While the English/international versions do have multiple language displays, the ones with JAPANESE displays are ONLY in Japanese. What's more, there are Japanese sellers here who will TRY to sell you their Japanese Handycam!!

Nice camera.

David L. Graham, Amazon

  • Summary: Camera takes great quality pictures and video. I used it to walk the Appalachian Trail, so I put it through a lot and it held up through the whole season. Though it's waterproof and very durable, mine has shut down in the rain before, probably because water got in the battery.

  • Summary: The sony handycam is a must by!!! It's unfortunate that Sony discontinued it on their website? But if you can find one... Get your hands on it ASAP!!! It is a great little camera!!! It's small, compact and light weight! I have the Sanyo Xacti I'm comparing it too... Sony beats it hands down!!!

HDR-GW77: Stunning Video, Poor Stills

Not my real Name, Amazon
18 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace my Sony HDR-TG1, which for some reason stopped taking stills. I loved the TG1 but wished there was more to it: Like being waterproof, a brighter LCD Screen, Internal Memory and most importantly, Sony's G lens. I got most of what I asked for.

I Love This Camcorder

Movie Maker (Wash, DC), Amazon
29 June 2013
  • Summary: As owner of a first generation Flip, I purchased the HDR-GW77V because it was rated best "pocket camcorder." I had considered some "prosumer" camcorders, but found them to be complex, with more controls and options that I would ever use in a lifetime.

Very difficult to manipulate the controls. Unable to press record or take a photo without bluring the result

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: Unable to press record or take a photo without bluring the result. Returned it via the suggested route (ablility to track plus insurance) which was very costly. I knew after 10 minutes of handling this camera that it would not work for me so this was an expensive and disappointing experience.
