small but perfectly formed

Mr. D. J. Grant, Amazon
23 July 2009
  • Summary: What a fantastic product, easy to use, well made, great video quality, easy to connect to a mac and easy to edit with. I would certainly recommend it to anyone. Now for the picky stuff. In order to make this a balanced review I've tried my hardest to think of things that could have been improved with this camera. Firstly you can't get an underwater case for it (which is strange as you can for almost any other Sony).

Check the Small Print

Chris Gondek, Amazon

  • Summary: Make sure you read thoroughly before you purchase, the Camera does do 1920 x 1080, but it is interlaced and not porgressive (1080i, not 1080p) Which is something I missed but, it is not obviously advertised. Also the format is AVHCD, which will not play in most players. Does not come with a mini HDMI cable ,but otherwise and overall good product.

Very Flexible - Superb Video, poor still images

Tirso Suarez "Tirso", Amazon
22 April 2009
  • Summary: Will try to keep it simple for potential buyers to understand: 1) I never owned a camcorder before this one. My thinking behind buying the Sony TG3 was to replace my Canon Ixus 800 for a camera that could record top quality video, take excellent still images (with flash) and still fit in the same pocket where I put my Canon. 2) The video is second to none. I compared video taken with the Sanyo (the one that looks like a gun) and the Sony definitely aces it.

  • Excerpt: I brought this to replace both my digital camcorder and camera, It does well in both cases and if I want better pics to print I use my other camera which has more 8 million pixels. The great thing is not haveing to carry both when you just walking about.Very Easy to download to PC,the only downsdie being the fact you have buy a Blue ray player to play DVD.

  • Excerpt: Sony TG3 is a great product. Tiny size but fits well in the hand for filming as well as in the pocket (!) for storage though I would recommend the fitted case. The technology is all hidden in touch screen menus which I have not fully tapped into yet. Video play back is great and the facial recognition adjust very well to family type scenarios.

  • Excerpt: The focus is very close to flash, hence there is a big problem of red-eye. But as a camcoder, its awesome. Go for it as a camcoder if you dont wanna use the camera.

NOT MAC COMPATIBLE, I BEG TO DIFFER........

Gadget Freak, Amazon
15 July 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the Sony TG3 and have been extremely impressed with it. As a Mac user, I am always concerned with the compatibility of any products I buy, and was sorry to see that some reviews have said that the Sony TG3 will not work on a Mac. After an anxious half hour of trying to get my Mac to recognize the camera I found that if you use the supplied dock my Mac had no problems with accessing the video or photo's I had shot on the TG3.
