Summary: Excellent camera for sirs time user, has all the functionality and user friendly ability you need. Incredible projection was actually shocked how good the quality is. Excellent service from seller would buy again.
Summary: Took this camera all around Europe for a family vacation and it performed beautifully. The zooming and picture quality are great. Also, being able to backup data externally really helps out with long vacations.
Summary: I bought this camcorder to take wrestling videos of the kids and for a ski trip to Lake Tahoe. Arrived when it said it would and worked the same. The videos I took from the wrestling tournament were great, but what really impressed me were the videos I got of my kids skiing. I took the videos while skiing next to my 5 and 7 year olds and they were fantastic. I show them off to everyone using the projector. It was light and took quality video.
Summary: Very happy with this Camcorder. The last camcorder I purchased was about twelve years old so it was time. This is my first Hi Definition camera and the video looks great. Little features such as the fact that it powers on when I swing open the display mean a lot. I never thought I would use the on board projector but it has come in handy a few times. Very good in low light conditions.
Summary: The quality of videos take with this camera are amazingly clear. A friend has a Sony PD-150 that is about 10 years old and cost a few thousand dollars at the time. The video taken with this Sony Handycam blew the quality away of the PD-150. This camera is very small and light which makes it easy to use for long periods of time, your arm doesn't get tired. Having the video on a media card instead of tape is also a big plus because it is so compact and easy to store.
