Summary: Length:: 2:57 Mins If you are looking for a camera that shoots great HD outside, then you have found the camera. The quality of shooting outdoors is very good. But when you go indoors and you do not have a lot of light coming in from the windows then the camera will start picking up noise. What I did is pick up a headband flash light and took the band around the camera to attach the light. Adding that extra light has help. You can change some gain and aperture settings.
Summary: Very nice camcorder. Any video or picture with plenty of light will look incredible. The only down side of it is that anything at night or with poor light the images will be dark. Once again with plenty of light the pictures looks great.
Summary: This is certainly a good buy for the price and the quality. Since every item is not perfect, even this has few drawbacks. Its doing ok in low light as compared to others, but in day light quality is the best. Creating a HD DVD is easy but to convert to a regualar DVD is realy pain. It takes for ever almost 4 hours for writing a regular DVD. The quality of conversion is bad. The other one When viewed connecting directly to TV, you get the best results.
Summary: I have this camcorder for just over three weeks and to date very good performance with minor issues. 1. Proper lighting - excellent picture quality. 2. Poor lighting - example "evening" I use the sunset setting with pretty good picture quality. 3. Definitely the motion sensor could be better.
Excellent detailed image quality with easy user interface but image has a jittery quality

Summary: I have been using a previous generation Sony HDR-SR7 high def 60GB hard drive camcorder and been overall happy with that model. I then waited patiently for Sony's new "XR" series of camcorders and am very pleased with the Sony HDR-XR100. This newer camcorder is the lowest end model of the four new XR series models, which include the HDR-XR100, XR200, XR500, and XR520. SONY HDR-XR100 PROS: 1. Feels significantly smaller than the previous generation Sony SR models.
