it's alright...

Cheryl, Amazon
21 January 2011
  • Summary: I've had this camera for about a year and a half and I've gotten pretty annoyed with the video quality. Being a $1,000 camcorder, I was expecting exceptional video quality. But, usually the footage comes out noisy/grainy and the camera takes forever to focus when moving around a lot.

Disappointed in SteadyShot

Susie Jones, Amazon
22 March 2010
  • Summary: I had a Sony standard-definition camcorder for many years that worked very well, and I decided it was time to get a high-def one. After reading the various reviews, I decided to get this one. While it works well otherwise, I've been very disappointed in the SteadyShot feature.

SONY HDR-HC9 IS REALLY GREAT

S. E. MILLER, Amazon
2 March 2010
  • Summary: I been looking for a camcorder for 5 months and I did lots of research in that time, I was in favor of a Canon at first ( S D ). As I read more reviews then you can imagine the cons of low light recording and the noise of the unit( mini-tape ) was a major concern.

Good Camera ... but where's the cinema mode ?

Vinay Dsouza "ultimate", Amazon
8 October 2009
  • Summary: I just got this camera yesterday, and I love the image quality, but I'm extremely disappointed that this does not have an inbuilt cinema mode as advertised. Canon vixia hv40 has cinema mode mentioned in the user manual, but the Sony hdr-hc9 has something about a cinematic effect. Does this work ?

Sony HDR Review

G. Bowman, Amazon
13 April 2009
  • Summary: I love Sony's camera products but technology makes things more difficult. I am still learning this camera. I wish the focal length was greater. I hate touching my screen for playback controls and other features. Camera needs a strap to put over your head as a safety precaution from dropping it.

  • Excerpt: Давно мечтал об этой камере, читал много хвалебных отзывов, расстроен!!! Фирма продавец на отрез отказывается поменять на другую более дорогую модель!!! Возможно по прошествии некоторого времени изменю свою оценку, но пока не рад!
  • Pros: о достоинствах напишут довольные камерой
  • Cons: при низкой освещенности, при режиме съёмки в темноте интенсивно "шумит" такое впечатление что с луны транслируют! медленно фокусируется, фокус часто сбивается, при перемотке верещит как дрель, неудачное меню.

HC9 primera impresion

Lluís, quesabesde.com
19 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Hace un par de días que he comprado la HC9. Por lo que hace referencia a la calidad de la imagen, prefiero esperar un tiempo prudencial para opinar. No he comprado aún un cable HDMI-HDMI (que no viene de serie) para conectarlo al TV y ver las imágenes con la mejor calidad, así que mejor esperar para...
