Summary: I like the picture and sound quality that this camera produces but once the video is downloaded things get very difficult. The software provided with the unit is extremely difficult to use and is a real ram hog.
Summary: I have several sony HD VIDEO CAMERAS, Infact I purchased three on these. One got ran over by truck. I quickly found two more to buy. These work great, they are small and you can carry with you. the quality is very good,
Summary: I started in 1968 with super 8 movies, moved on to Betamax as soon as it came available, upgraded to a Sony SL2000 Betamax in 1982, in the early 90's I moved up to a Sony 8mm video camcorder. I held on as long as I could and finally purchased the Sony TG-1 a couple of years ago.

Summary: What's the point of having an HD camcorder if you don't use it? This unit is compact enough to carry everywhere so I can capture those random precious moments. Picture quality is sharp and it's a breeze to use. The videos come out amazing on my Sony HDTV.
