Summary: I had one of these that I had used for 5 years that I accidentally damaged. While looking for a replacement I found no better value for the money. Fortunately I was able to purchase this used one very reasonably. My old one still works if I treat it gingerly so now I can capture two angles from matching cameras.

Summary: The Sony HDR-SR5 handycam 40 GB nightshot videocamera is a great paranormal investigation tool.It allows you to capture still images while recording video.It also gives you 5 full hours of video on the highest quality setting.Theres a Memory stick Pro Duo slot for additional memory,which I use to store the still pictures I take,allowing the full hard drive space available for my video.The hot shoe adapter can accomodate a zoom or shotgun mic or a number of different...
Crisp, clear shots and with the tape you get no 'artifacts'.

Excerpt: I have been shooting with this videocam for the past 2 years. It ALWAYS exceeds my expectations. The tapes allow you to have an archived version and eliminate artifacts when you are panning. Suprisingly, the sound is pretty good just with the camera, adding the boom mic on the top helps also. I love this camera and would recommend it again and again.
Summary: I purchased this item for use in my paranormal group. I needed a night vision camera. It lived up to it's name. Plus the added wide lens and all the attachments make it easy to film our investigations. The battery life is fantastic, plus it came with 2 batteries. It has a good mic and great steady shot. Any Ghost Hunters out there, I would pic one of these up ASAP.
Summary: This camera is simple to use and has great recording quality for the price. I recommend the an additional extended battery and the polarized lens for outdoor use. This camera can be used as for simple recording or you can explore the many menu options to add effects or fine adjustments. The digital zoom is amazing up to 20X before it starts loosing most of it's quality. The still camera option is great and takes photos as good as most consumer point and shoot cameras.
Summary: I bought this camera for documenting some of the things I do as a consultant in a shop environment. I anticipated that lighting would not be great, so I opted for this camera that used a single CMOS chip instead of a 3ccd, which offers significantly better low light performance and similar quality, offering full 1080p HD shooting. I was also drawn to the internal hard drive, which makes tapes and cards irrelevant.
Summary: EN GENERAL ME GUSTA EL PRODUCIO. LA COMPRA FUE EXCELENTE HASTA QUE LLEGO AL PAIS. CUANDO SE COMPRA POR INTERNET LA IDEA ES CONSEGUIR MAS BARATO, PERO RESULTA QUE AL LLEGAR EL PRODUCTO A COLOMBIA, TUVE QUE PAGAR NACIONALIZACION POR LA FORMA COMO SE DESCRIBIO EL PRODUCTO EN EL ENVIO. ENTONCES LA VENTAJA DE COMPRAR EN USA, SE CONVIRTIO EN DESVENTAJA PORQUE PAGUA LA MITAD DEL VALOR DEL PRODUCTO EN IMPUESTOS. NO ME GUSTO.
Summary: Well, this is a good entry level HD camcorder. We purchased this before Christmas and the price was perfect ($300 less than what we saw in Best Buy and Circuit City). Couldn't beat that price. This camera is easy to use. The picture quality is amazingly clear. I love the fact it's got a HD, so no need to have SD cards (there is a slot which you can use). One thing I'm not a big fan of, is Sony's software format (AVCHD or something like that).
