Sony HDR-XR200 Great Camcorder for the Price

archimedes, Amazon

  • Summary: I've been waiting for the price of HD camcorders to come down a bit before buying one. A few weeks ago I stopped by a Sony outlet to pick up a charger for my cybershot, and they had the HDR-XR200v on sale for $599. I knew this camcorder was selling for closer to $1000 not too long ago.

HD-XR200 HDMI output

  • Summary: I purchased this camera at Christmas and really like the picture quality and ease of use. It doesn't give top performance in normal room lighting so my next purchase will be a video light. Outdoors it is very good, and the steadyhot feature allows handheld operation without any shake.

Great camera for average non-professional use

  • Summary: I bought this HD camera after buying (and returning) a Sony DCR-SR47 SD camcorder. Differences are notorious (as well as the prices). DCR-SR47 camera simple didn't covered my expectations in terms of video quality. However, the HDR-XR200V did fully covered them.

Great Camera but indoor in even average light is crappy.

  • Summary: I love the camera and all of its features but you should upgrade all the lights in your family room to 120 watt bulbs if you wanna even get close to capturing a decent picture. But it should be known that most digital cameras lack in this area.

Excellent Camera! Still a great camcorder for a 2009 Model!

  • 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.

Awesome camera with just one disappointment

amcg, Amazon
30 July 2009
  • Summary: In my opinion, the camcorder deserves 4/5 stars. The HD picture quality outdoors (rain or shine) is PHENOMAL. I got a similar picture in SD. It wasn't quite as sharp as HD but still an EXCELLENT picture. The sound quality is amazing. I had no problem with wind noise when outside on windy days.

Good but still some snags that need improvement

27 November 2009
  • Summary: Bought this for a wedding and it did not do too bad, until I found out how processor hungry HD movies are on the computer. You need a good fast computer to deal with the high end HD movies, and, you need the Sony software to import the movies, it's stored on the HD in a strange format (at least I've...

Great camera.

  • Summary: I have been using this camera now for 3 months and am extremely happy with the purchase. During daylight conditions the picture quality is excellent when played back on a HD TV, and it is worth recording on the highest quality setting.
