Good quality - some features difficult to use

  • Excerpt: This is a great camera with good quality picture and sound.  But even though it claims to have the Super steady shot system, you can still tell the video is shaking a bit unless you set the camera down.  Plus, if you want to use some features such as a fade to black at the end, you have to go into the menu in the touch LCD screen to do so, which is difficult when you are trying to shoot.  But all in all, I like it, and would recommend it.

Buy this camcorder in good used condition-it's a deal!

  • Summary: This HDR-SR5 with 40GB is really a quality camcorder still at 3yrs old in used condition. The night vision is great for anyone into paranormal or "Looking for Bigfoot". Do buy a larger battery though and for expanded, better night viewing, buy a separate IR led light. ( This cam works awesome with these wave lengths! Yes, 100ft and still visible to a lesser degree!) Do your own editing on the cam itself and take the pro memory stick into walmart.

Great Camera, Poor Software

Andrew Wessman, Amazon
3 December 2008
  • Summary: I've had this camera for over a year now, and have been very happy with it overall. Great picture, very easy to use, can take decent stills while also shooting video. I play the videos back on a 52" 1080p LCD tv and they look great. The only drawback is the includedd software, Picture Motion Browser. It completely crashed my Vista Ultimate 64-bit computer and was totally unusable.

Good Quality, Invest in Software

Dean A. Neubauer, Amazon
22 October 2008
  • Summary: This is a good camera but lacking hardware controls for zoom, focus, and iris. The AVCHD format is good but support for it is still catching up. Invest in Nero or Vegas Pro to edit.

Nice Cam

Fernando Moncayo Raad, Amazon
26 March 2008
  • Summary: This is my first video cam so I'm speaking as a totally newcomer to this world. I must say it is a great camera with a great HD video quality compared to SD, although it is not very good with low light. This is a good product with very good characteristics.

Nice Camcorder

  • Summary: It makes a beautiful crisp video. I didn't realize that there is no mic input or earphone output jack. The internal mic works well though. For the money you can't beat it!

  • Summary: This particular camera has a great picture and takes great pictures as well. The only thing i didnt like was the ability to record in one format only. The controls are easy to figure out in my opinion.
