Summary: I had previously owned this very same camera and unfortunately it broke after many years of use. This camera was so good that I decided to buy another one just like it. The vendor is great as he/she mailed it to me pretty fast. Thank you.
Summary: Item was as described, although I was told that the cord included would work in spite of the correct cord was not. The ad did say the correct cord was not included and it was a quick fix. I would do business with this seller again, they were honest and tried to help me out.
Summary: I wanted an HD camcorder but was turned off by the units that used a hd for storing the video, this unit took care of that. It uses the regular DV tapes you can buy just about anywhere. My experience with the battery has been very good but it wouldn't hurt to buy an extra.
Summary: I love this camcorder. I used in during my vacation in Hawaii. I still can't believe how amazing it looks on the screen. Most of my guests who started watching the video thought that we were watching a discovery channel broadcast. It works it's best outside especially with great lighting.
Summary: I was very pleased with this product. The ease of use, great video quality make it worth the high price tag. It also takes great still pics. I saved about $300 on Amazon and got my camera in 1 day, just in time for my kids Xmas program.
Summary: The first use for this HD camcorder was to record for an hour total of childbirth and bringing the baby home. Lighting varied from dim in labor/delivery to bright in ordinary rooms and of course outdoors.
Summary: Bought this in October for a trip to Ireland with my family and I could not be more pleased. I understand that the HC5 and HC7 versions are coming soon which offer 4 and 6 MP still capabilities and if you're in no hurry you've certainly nothing to loose by waiting, but get a high definition video...
Summary: I bought this May of 2006 and absolutely love it. But check out HDR-HC5 and HDR-HC7 that just came out on preorder. If you can wait until March, I say go ahead and get the HC-7 unless you get a steal price for the HC3.
Summary: Have high end HD video camera. Images from this little tyke compare well. Lens is OK. The suggested additional wide angle lens is, in proportion to the very small camera, kind of bulky. A trade off. Maybe a wider built-in lens might compromise elsewhere.
Summary: Bought this camera 11/06 as "refurb" from Amazon for great price. Other than a few fingerprints, camera was in new condition. I have a Sony FX1 HDV camera ($3000) and wanted a second HDV camera that I could intercut with on 2-camera shoots. The BabyCam, as I call it, fits the bill perfectly.
