Summary: This Sony hi-def camcorder (filming in 1080i) provides a lot of value for the price. The key to "home movies" is always going to be the quality of the media on which you are putting your recording, and on to that end, this camcorder delivers very, very well for a relatively inexpensive price.
Pros: Let's be honest, the reason why we buy an HD camcorder is for the picture. The picture on this camera is fantastic. I zoom in on flowers and am able to clearly see the aphids sitting on the pedals. The touch screen LCD is a nice touch. Using features like the spot focus allow the user to touch th...
Cons: The only downside to the touch screen LCD is that sometimes you mistakingly touch the wrong button. It is definitely not designed for those with large fingers.
Summary: Video quality is excellent. 1080p video looks crystal clear on my tv. Even low light recording came out so perfect. XV colors are very vibrant and bright. Both 4MP standard photo and 3MP wide angle photo are excellent quality. In fact, I first thought of purchasing a separate still camera.
Summary: I bought this while living in Hawaii and sold it a little before moving. The whole process of getting it from dv to file format was just too annoying for me.

Summary: This is a great camera that takes very high quality pictures. I am actually really happy with the still pictures it takes as well. Be careful you have looked into all your software editing info before purchasing (be prepared to spend a couple hundred dollars for a codec to out the hd video) that...
Summary: I am extremely pleased with this camera. I have been shooting and editing video as a hobby for about 10 years and am thrilled with the image quality of this lens and the processor. If you are going to buy it, my only recommendation is to make sure your computer can handle editing HD video.
Summary: If you have an HDTV at home and appreciate the HD quality channels, this camcorder is a must companion for your family and your HDTV. It is compact and user friendly with lots of useful features and the HD (1080i) video quality is stunning.
