Don't record in HD

K. Brainerd, Amazon
22 May 2008
  • Summary: My husband and I purchased this camcorder back in October, and found it to be a great little camcorder. We recently went on vacation, and got the idea to try recording in HD for the first time. We were able to play back the video ONCE by plugging into an HD TV. After that, we have been unable to retrieve ANY of our HD videos!! We can not even use the playback feature on the camcorder ... hours of video, now useless.

  • Pros: Awesome video and a slow motion feature. Great night vision and stills are fantastic
  • Cons: WILL NOT WORK WITH A MAC! Sony missed the mark here when all the best video editing software is on a Mac and you cant even use it. I have to return mine for that alone even though I own a pc too
