Summary: Esta camcorder é exelente! A qualidade da imagem chega a niveis de Broadcast, a opcao de HDMI e Firewire facilitam muito na post production. Unica desvantagem é a falta de uma entrada para microfone externo, somente atravez da sapata para flash, a inteligent hot shoe. Os acessorios sao relativamente baratos e o fato de ela ainda gravar em tape oferece a vantagem do backup automatico do material original.
Absolutely excellent product!! A high point in the Sony line.

Summary: One of the best models in the Sony HD camcorder line. I love this model so much that I HAD to buy this replacement immediately after my old one, which I had had for over 5 years, decided to go for a swim off the side of my boat.. These are superb cameras, the picture quality is amazing, and I am actually glad that the audio is simple stereo, not Dolby 5.1 like some of their other cameras, which is a pain to edit.
Summary: Sony HDR-HC3E is the european version of the hc3. Both produce stunning HD quality, however the hc3-e is a PAL camcorder, not an NTSC camcorder. The video produced on this version cannot be played directly on US tvs. Unless you have editing software that can convert PAL to NTSC ( Widely available on line & in upscale editing programs)you should not buy this version of the hc3 unless of course you live in the UK or the continent.
Summary: This is a great camera. I bought it for work that I'm doing in Highschool with our AV department. I love the handycam's features and capabilities. The HD is fantastic. I would recommend this handycam to anyone.
Summary: This is a great HDV camcorder for the price. Most camcorders are now AVCHD, but I beleve the HDV has better quality. I have both, the AVCHD sometimes shows trails when panning fast, where the HDV does not. The only complaint is, durability. My original one was dropped in the camera bag, and the LCD went bad. I purchsed another used one witch works perfect.
