Summary: This camcorder is great for everyday use as for average users as well as semi-professionals. I'd say that Sony Handycams are the best consumer level camcorders with cutting edge technology and rich vibrant HD video quality. This Sony has the richest color gamut I've ever seen in a consumer level camcorder.
Summary: I love this camera, and i abused it. I took it with me to Afghanistan and many operations. its a little beat up but still continues to get phenomenal pictures/video. Oh, and when i upload my pictures to my mac, it will display location and time and much info. Only thing is i need to fix my lens cover because like i said, i abused it. to many explosions rattled the lens cover it doesn't open all the way. but you can still record, its all my fault.
Summary: I recently purchased this Sony HDR-XR200V 120GB HDD High Definition Camcorder w/15x Optical Zoom and have to say that in my opinion it was a great buy! Love all the features that it has to offer, especially the NightShot feature. I also ordered a couple IR lights to go with this camcorder to enhance the NightShot feature, without the extra IR lights the camcorder can only see about 6-8 feet.
Easy handling, produce excellent videos, technical support readily availabl

Summary: I needed a small camcorder to record my summer vacation with my grandchildren at Disney World. This Sony HDR-XR200v size, weight and features more than meets all of my present and future needs. My likes : 1. The 3 second smooth slow motion feature 2. The zoom 15x,30x or 180x(quality is lower)the original size 3. Takes photo automatically when subject smiles. 4. The ease in creating A DVD or Blu-Ray disc. 5. The built-in GPS records automatically your location 6.
Summary: I have the privilege of using this camcorder at our church to record services and other events. There are many great features on this camera and to be honest I haven't even touched half of them. The recording is smooth and focusing is quick. It also gives you the ability to take 4 MP pictures which is a bonus. It also has night shot capability as well as "slow motion" recording which is really cool.
Summary: Records great HD videos. Compact size with plenty of internal storage. Camcorder has a night shot feature for low light situations and a GPS that tags location of videos. Software could be a little more user friendly, but it is not impossible to work with. Most videos will require dual layer disc to burn to due to size of video files. A great camcorder for the price.
Small HD camera to use in one hand, anywhere, any time without limitation!
