Summary: Bought this to upgrade my capability for making music videos in our recording studio (Henderson Mountain Recording Studio) here in the Ozark Mountains. We like being able to connect to our audio/video CPU through the USB and connect to the hard drive of the camera. The images are sharp, crystal clear and no blur whatsoever. We intend to buy 2 more for different angle shots to add more interest to the music video. Would highly recommend this model to anyone.
Great camcorder. The best I have ever owned or used.

Summary: Camcorder from the Gods. 120GB hard disc is a massive storage solution to hold all of the crisp high def footage you can take for many many shoots. Easy to use and has a viewfinder! One of the last Sony Camcorders to feature Nightshot infared recording.

Summary: This is a great camera. I now own 3 of these cameras. I do video projects on the side, and I am very happy with this camera. I have placed the VCL-HG0737C Wide conversion lens on each of the cameras. I also have a VCL-HG1737C Telephoto lens (little to no, vignette). I also have VCL-R2037 telephoto lens (noticable, vignette). The camera takes great photos as well. You are even able to take photos while videoing (takes several seconds to process).
