Excerpt: I bought this camcorder to replace an old mini-tape camcorder. I have digital cameras, phones, and tablets that do video but have trouble maintaining focus when zooming on a subject. By comparison, this camcorder has great zoom. The picture quality and sound are good. The video projection is kind of fun, but most of the time I have a large screen available to show videos instead.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: Camera has a wealth of features that will take a while to fully explore. Tried 2 other camcorders from @, was very unhappy with both of them, so glad 3rd time was a charm for me. B H beat @ by $ also. Win/win.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: The wired remote is a great option to control the camera when I need to step away from the camera. The built in projector was great to show the soccer team the game footage right after the game at a team dinner.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: We bought three of these for use in our High School editing classes. The picture quality is the best we've seen from a camera in this price range (got them on-sale for less than $ each). The stabilization is also cool, especially for hard-headed students who don't want to carry a tripod out on their shoots. Chose this model because it allows for external mic. I liked the fact it has an accessory shoe, BUT since it's recessed, we haven't been able to make use of it.
Pros: Easy to Use, External mic input, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: Great for outdoor shooting, excellent stabilization due to Sony's BOSS system. Wish the indoor shooting and low light shooting was a little better but for the price range it's an excellent camera.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Summary: Loved using this little handycam. It was perfect for videos of the animals and everything that moved on our latest safari. The color is beautiful, it is easy to use and the stabilization is amazing. What a help all the other reviews were so I feel that I picked one of the very best ones. It's really small too so nice for carrying around.
Summary: It's a great camera, but I am still unable to upload video from the camera to my Mac. I had to buy a card reader to do it. The user's guide was no help because it didn't explain exactly how to upload video. When it comes to computers and other technology, I need to learn every little step to do what I want, and the user's guide fell far short of being helpful. As for delivery and the condition of the camera, which was used, they were first class.
