Summary: I just used this cam twice to records a soccer tournament of my children. After working properly for a while, it started to display a blue screen and stopped recording and displaying error messages. And it happened during the two trials.
Summary: I cannot believe Sony will make a $575/ product with no built in flash and with no place for flash attachment. Also, there is no view finder-in an effort to save battery life by not using LCD monitor. Within 24 hours of buying, I had to return the product.
Summary: I purchased this model directly from Sony Style store after being assured that it would meet my needs. i.e, recording inside a dance studio. The first time I used it I did not change any settings & the quality was the worst I had ever seen.

Summary: When I purchased an HD camcorder I expected an HD quality picture. Not the case with this camcorder - in normal evening indoor lighting the video is extremely noisy, it was so bad that I burned a disc and took it to the Sony Style store to compare -- I must have received a defective unit?
