Summary: it is such a high quality HD-CAM I've ever seen. It works really great with PC to burn DVD or AVCHD DVD. But, once it takes long time to install the software to PC. Except this, it is very portable, and great item for making home vodeo.
Summary: After reading a lot of reviews on this camera.... I have to say, the picture is UNREAL! I'm on my computer right now and just copied 3.2 Gigs of HD Video to my system in a very very short time.... The playback on my system of this HD Video content is OUT OF THIS WORLD...
Summary: I'm not going to bore you with techno babble so I'll keep it short and sweet... I recommend this camcorder to anyone wanting really great picture and sound quality. I just took a short vacation and the images were wonderful!
Summary: I was a little concerned about the software issues, but upon connecting the camera to my MAC, iMovie and iPhoto is able to import directly from the camera without installing a thing. It just works! I didn't install any of the Sony software that came with the camera.
Summary: I'm a moderately experienced computer user, but knew little about camcorders. I held off for a year on buying one until I was certain the editing software could handle AVCHD, because my experience with tapes was simply that they never got to my PC for editing.
