Great if you don't want to record for over 20 minutes!

  • Summary: When I first got this camera, I loved it! After about a year and a half, however, I have a BIG issue. After about 20 minutes of use (starting and stopping recording), the autofocus quits working. Example, I can record the first period of my son's hockey game.

  • Summary: I bought the camera on december 31st in Amsterdam and used it during the following 5 days of my vacation, including a wild New Year night at Amsterdam. To be very short this choice had been a result of a 3-month analysis.

  • Summary: For a HD cam i think this is one of the best, been using it for 2 years now and never once has it dissapointed me, when i got it though it said 5-10 hour barrety life, but that requires that you upgrade your battery the standard one is not that great, maybe you'll get 3hours out of it depending on...
  • Pros: HD, 5.1 surround Sound... easy to use menu

Great HD quality, and for SD as well. Ideal for small productions

  • Excerpt: This camera was the second purchase in my household since an old JVC DV camera which played its part but the SR8E was such a change. We were now summoned to excellent if not exceptional video quality and sound (5.1 surround sound capability).
  • Pros: Amazing sound and video quality, infolithium tells you remaining battery life
  • Cons: a little noisy sometimes, average picture quality, fairly heavy

Failed after 2 months

Love Resurrection, Amazon

  • Summary: Yes a good camera as far as picture quality etc. is concerned BUT the hard drive has become disconnected after only two months, (apparently a common problem) losing a lot of valuable work and now no-one at Sony can tell me if the camera is eligible for warranty, having been bought in Hong Kong.

If only

  • Summary: The quality of filming is fantastic the camera is stylish small and compact. Unfortunately you are very very limited in taking the footage from camera to editing software if you are a mac owner i wouldn't even consider this camera. I am so disappointed great footage and no way to edit it !

Great Camera!!!

  • Summary: Bought this camera five weeks ago whilst on holiday, have recorded both HD ans SD. The HD is mindblowing when hooked upp to a 1080HD TV. You would honestly think it was recorded by a pro. Also bought Sony Vegas Platinum editing studio.
