Summary: The videos look great. The night vision works very well. But good luck trying to convert Sony's proprietary video format to use it on ANYTHING ELSE. You cannot even load the videos to YouTube without paying for extra, third-party software. Thanks, Sony, for cheating me out of good money.
Summary: Picked up one of these about a year after it's release and at a substantial savings vs. when it was first released. Looked at it's replacements the ux5 and ux7 and decided that this model probably fit in between them as the ux5 seemed to have lost features and the ux7 gained.
Summary: Bottom line, the picture quality that you get is incredible on the standard HQ setting. You can go two levels higher(just higher bitrates) but you shorten your recording time to 20 minutes or 15 minutes depending on which you select.
Summary: A lot has already been said and there are some excellent reviews here (as well as elsewhere), but I just want to add my 2 cents. I purchased this guy a few months back, and have since purchased a light and a second battery for it (I'll talk about those shortly). My favorite features include: 1.
Summary: FANTASTIC camcorder!! Awesome stills and vids. Highly recommended for beginning user based on low price and ease of use!! Only tough part is converting video's. Still recommend to any user looking for HD quality!!
Summary: This is an awesome piece of equipment! This cam produces some of the most stunning video and right now the price has to be the deal of the decade! The dvd format is outstanding and it really is the best of both worlds.
Summary: I bought this camcorder few days back and this is one buy that iam not going to regret. In spite of some of the drawbacks, seeing yourself in HD gives you real high. The picture quality is awesome. Its like stack of 5-6 mega pixel images put together.
It is a great buy at this price range. Video is stunning

Summary: Yeah, the DVD storage should be longer than 15 minute for HD recording. However, the price/quality of this camcorder more than make up for it. Plus i only do home movies so this fits my needs. I am rewarded by this unit everytime i hook this thing up to my HDTV.
Summary: The worst thing for this is, you have to bring a bench of disc with you and replace disc every 20 min if you are capturing HD video. I think most of buyers would take HD video if you buy a HD camcorder. But a small disc can only hold 20 min HD video, have to change disc time by time.
