Summary: For the money these cameras can't be beat. I dropped one out of a treestand and it still works. Another I got wet in a rainstorm and it works. The video is clear but is a little grainy during panning shots. It holds hours of HD footage on the hard drive. Been using one every hunting season for 6 years and it is still going strong so they are very durable. Hope this helps.
Summary: I love this camcorder. It is one of the best things that Sony has had updated with Internal memory of GBs to record and take as many pictures as you like. You can also add the Sony memory stick duo. It is touch screen. Videos are easy to mess with or edit through Apple, Mac book Pro or any Windows operating system as long as you have patience and know what your doing. The Distance it can zoom in is insane and a lens can be added to get closer views. Very Easy to Use.
Summary: This camera is great! I have used it for some night severance, I bought a Sony HVL-HIRL IR NightShot attachment that works great with this camera! It does give the camera more night vision capability, which allowed us to capture what we were looking for! This camera also takes amazing still photos! I have been very very happy with it! It is easy to use, and just an awesome little video/still camera!
Summary: The SR11 60 GB Camcorder I bought has provided everything I had hoped for in the results. I video college hockey and this has done a great job including the still picture quality. I would defiantly buy it again..
Great camera! Video quality right up there with the prosumer level!

Summary: Great camera from Sony! I already own 3 of these and use them for my video production business. Big picture in a small package. I know this small "handycam" can outperform more pro level ones in terms of image quality, + there's the size, ease of use, and list of features to add to that. If it's either for family use, or for an aspiring videographer, I would and do recommend this one.
Current features / comfortable to hold with this past generation camcorder.

Summary: I wanted a new camcorder for Family Gatherings, Holidays, Birds at the Feeders and Pets / Wildlife. I tried the new cameras and found them difficult to operate with my large hands. I recalled this style of Sony Camcorder from when I looked at camcorders a couple of years ago. The enlarged case on the right side gives me something to wrap my palm around and keep my fingers a comfortable distance from the buttons for easy operation.
Good camera, great price and still a relevant camera after 3-4 yrs.

Summary: Purchased this camera for Night Shot and the ability of using a viewfinder or side monitor. I was impressed with the quality of images and features and have made this camera my main video device. I wish the zoom lens had more wide angle.
Summary: Amazing quality video, super easy operation , no complicated menu's to work with. This also has nice sound quality, and if the battery holds as much time as stated its great. We have done simple tasks to figure what location in video productions to use it . We will be using this as a backup to our sony pro setup. The quality fits together nicely.
