Summary: I bought a new Sony SLR, a new Sony computer, a new Sony portable MP3 player, a new Sony Ereader and this POS camera back in Sept of last year. This camera is horrible. I sometimes wonder who in the h*ll is running Sony at times. Computer is not as good as the two Vaio's I purchased in 2001 and 2005. Sony Portable MP3 player is decent. Ereader has been excellent. The SLR camera has been very good. But this camcorder sucks.
