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. Never, never, never buy this stupid camcorder.
Summary: I bought a MacBook Pro computer specifically to edit my home videos, due to its ease of use and compatbility with a wide variety of cameras. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that while I can get stills from this camera onto my Mac, the video is incompatible! To even read the documentation on the included CD I had to borrow a PC. I don't know if a driver will ever be available to let me use the Mac with the videos from this camera.
