Summary: So I use this for mounting in a Class 8 (semi) rig and have been for nearly 5 years, and I use a Fat Gecko Camera and Camcorder Mount so I can have it as close to the front windshield as possible. The mount makes it so there is virtually no shaking, even when going over bumps.

Summary: Great little camera. I am a pro videographer and use this camera as a "second" camera for candid side, back, close shots. I love how easy is is to transfer the video into the computer using the Sony software.

Summary: The camera is a great product, no doubt about it~ There are plenty of reviews on that issue. But let's talk about the intelligence and customer care behind shipping an expensive, hard disk drive based camcorder in a box with zero protection.
