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.
Wonderful Camcorder with Fantastic Steady System and Low Light Performance!

Summary: I bought this to replace my 3 years old Panasonic HD camcorder. The old one perform poorly under low light condition. I expected the new camcorder to do well in the night, steady and have shallow of depth of field.
