Summary: I've been a micro-budget film maker for many years now, and I've gone through my fair share of dslr/camecorders, And for the price, this one has been by far the best. Not only is it pretty affordable, but the video quality is nothing short of outstanding.
Summary: I puchased this camcorder "almost new" and from everything I could see it hadn't been used at all. I started using video cameras when VCR tapes was the storage medium and I've used just about every other variation of camcorder since then.
Summary: It doesn't get better than Sony's PJ710V digital HD camera. After extensive research I bought this for our family at Christmas 2012 and have not been disappointed. In fact, this camera continues to impress me each time I use it.
Summary: How I got into the Sony Brand was I got my wife a Sony cyber-shot 16.2 mega pixels small camera for Christmas. I was so blown away by the picture quality but when I took video I really was blown away. I got more camera for my money so I knew That my next video camera would be a Sony.
Great camcorder if purchased way under shelf price.

Summary: It is the best camcorder from the last line of SONY camcorders I had chance to use. The picture quality is just outstanding, (not comparing to pro-level camcorders). The zoom is little too fast, but it compensates with super fast focusing.
Summary: Everything is good here- I agree with all positive reviews. Only one thing I don't like: to watch video , recorded on SDHC memory card , you must download SONY PLAY MEMORIES HOME to the computer, on which you want to watch video,i.e. it is additional problem to share your video.
