BEWARE of ieee PORT!

D.M. "mama of four", Amazon
10 February 2008
  • Summary: The Sony HDR-HC3 worked well. However the great drawback of Sony camcorders is shown in my recent experience with my HDR-HC3 which I purchased here on Amazon. We went as a family on a cross-country trip this past summer, filming hours worth of video.

Mini DV is Nearly R.I.P.

Solo Goodspeed, Amazon
20 January 2007
  • Summary: I must agree with an earlier reviewer, that this camcorder is not worth the asking price ..... especially now, since Mini DV seems to be a dying technology. Don't get me wrong; for what it is, the HC3 does a great job, with quality video and relatively easy operation.

Beware of the capabilities

Ashish Batra, Amazon
20 January 2007
  • Summary: True it is a breakthrough technology and its a cool gadget. You have to store on the tapes and this does not use a DVD, which means that the storage life is limited, unless you want to convert all the data to DVDs, oh yeah... we got time for that.

Stillframe capacity

Ryan, Amazon
20 January 2007
  • Summary: As far as background; I'm familiar with graphics and video, but an educated beginner when it comes to actually creating digital video. I've only used this camera in Easy mode. I haven't had a chance to use this camera much for recording video. Sony gives you no software support. None.

NOT worth over $1000

John A. Berner, Amazon
20 January 2007
  • Summary: I happened to get a great deal on this camera at $500. It has more than been worth it for that price, but there are several shortcomings that keep it from being worthy of the premium price range at most retailers, and the interests of mid to pro level videographers.

No mic input!

Anonymous, Newegg
28 July 2006
  • Summary: If you are a soccer mom, or just want to record home movies this is a great camera. If you are serious about creating high quality content and want to use non-sony accessories, look elsewhere.
  • Pros: Superb image quality, HDV, small and easily portable, hold in one hand.
  • Cons: Lack of prosumer features found on higher end models. Poor quality built in mic. No standard mic input and no standard accessory shoe. The Sony HDR-HC1 at least has a mic input. Sony is trying to force you to buy their accessories.
