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!

Summary: I'm moving up from a Sony HD-PC100 that is a miniDV tape based camcorder. This camera has a touch screen with great interface and easy to use menus. You can increase the overall size of the buttons on the screen by hitting the 'easy' button. It is priceless for me to be able to record footage and then simply upload them to my PC. After the upload to my PC it is extremely easy using the Sony Picture and Motion Browser software to create either DVD or Blu-ray disks.
Summary: I am well pleased with the sony hd handy cam. I have only used it a few times and the picture quality is great. I have an older model sony sd handy cam and there is no comparsion. My only complaint is it is very hard to aim camera in bright sunshine you can not see the display. Have same problem with older model.
