A decade of memories.

Adam Oster, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera almost 10 years ago and it's just now where I'm starting to think I might actually want to replace it. If that's not enough of a recommendation to begin with, I don't know what is. When I bought this one almost a decade ago, it was one of the few high definition cameras on the market. Making the decision to attempt shooting an independent film, I purchased this item and loved every second of using it.

  • Summary: AMAZING CAMERA!!! The HD picture blows me away. It takes amazing video and the integrated mic is very good at picking up sound and isn't muffled in any way. with this camera you can record HD quality right to MiniDV tapes and don't need expensive HDV tapes. this camera also has an input for a mic and an output to headphones to hear what exactly the mic is recording.

Perfect for anyone just getting started in video. Great value for the money

  • Summary: Used it today for the first time. I was shooting a project that lasted 3 hours. Battery still hadn't died! Also, screen will let you know how many minutes of battery it has left. It has a mic jack and headphone jack so you can add an external mic and listen to your audio while you record. Picks up sound very easily so if you need to interview someone I'd suggest a lavier mic or shotgun mic as well.

When it's good it's amazing...

  • Summary: Playing around with this camera has only enhanced my view of Sony's handycams. The video and features are brilliant and the aesthetics of the camera are second to none. However like Sony cameras I purchased over 4 years prior to this one's release it is very likely to have the condensation error (which if you look online you will see hundreds of posts about it but no permanent fixes) and broken flex cables.
