  • Summary: The machine seems to be working good but not yet used on functions. I m still going to check on the 27 April where I will be video graphing a wedding. I will then tell, I need an angle lens that will make the view more wider.

Adequate

  • Summary: I love a lot of the features on this camcorder, however it doesn't do that well in low light unless you have proper lighting. I was needing a little more quality in the video but at 6.1 megapixles you can't really expect miracles.

Not a huge fan...

  • Summary: I used this camera to shoot a high school football game yesterday, and I wasn't pleased. The touch screen controls are extremely unusable and uncomfortable. I love the feel of the Canon XL1 and XL2 because all of the options are on the exterior. Nice try, Sony. I'll be using a Canon from now on though.

Great Buy

  • Excerpt: This is a great camera depending on your needs. No it's not a professional camera but if you use it for events, weddings, documentries, parties and the same you can't go wrong. As for as price you can't beat the price for it's range. The controls are easy to access and work. If you don't have any video camera exsperience then it may seem a little intimidating and you might try a smaller camera instead.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: No External Mic Input

  • Summary: I recently purchased this camcorder and am really glad I did. I bought the camcorder after reading the great reviews featured on HD Camera Guide. I LOVE the shoulder mount (made so much of a difference) and the picture quality is amazing! Although no XLR inputs can be kind of frustrating.

Excellent camera. Ok accessories...

  • Summary: Really, I just bought this package for the hvr-hd1000u because it was one of the better deals on the web with some accessories thrown into the mix as well. The camera itself is a very sturdy, clear camera that records in glorious HD. Also, some of the accessories are pretty good for a cheap compilation. However, I can't say the same for some of the other accessories like the video light, which is so dim it doesn't really help in any situation.

Yes, it's worth it!

  • Summary: I just bought this camera last week with the intention of making a feature HDV film with a group of like-minded individuals and I have to say now that I've received it and shot a little bit of footage with it I'm very excited. The picture is crystal clear and very bright. I watched what I shot on my HD television and it looks great, better than some professionally produced videos that air on the HD channels.

  • Summary: Look, this thing feels cheap. It's lightweight and plasticky feeling. It looks a lot like a really old VHS tape camcorder. It feels like a toy. BUT... I'll be dipped if this thing doesn't shoot some fine video! It's really crisp and vibrant stuff! I shoot professional MMA cage matches. I use multiple cameras.
