Customer Reviews:

  • Great little camera!
    I spent a lot of time researching HD camcorders. This one is by far the best available to date. Flash and full HD! I own a 57 inch HDTV and it looks great even with composite cable! Purchased from Best Buy for $599 and extremely happy!...more info
  • DO NOT BUY if you are a Macintosh user!
    I ordered this camera because I needed something small and easy for a weekend trip and to shoot grandkid movies. It worked fine until I tried to download the movies to my Macintosh. Then I discovered that you cannot use this camera with Macintosh computers! So I have a camera full of movies, a $600 dent in my credit card (with accessories) and cannot even see the results. There is nothing in the Amazon description that says it is not compatible with the Mac system. There is a box on page 27 of the instruction book that talks about using a Mac, but once you get the information online from Sony you learn you can only transfer still pictures to Macs, not movies. You can probably pick mine up cheap on eBay or Craigs List as it is of no use to me at all, and because the packaging went out in the trash before the trip I cannot return it. I will NEVER buy another Sony product, ever....more info
  • Great quality camera for the price!
    This camera is amazing. Once I charged up this puppy and fired it up it looked awesome. I filmed my dog and you could see every strand of hair on his body and the texture of the hair. It also has the smiling sensor technology that is really neat. Put it in video mode and when someone smiles SNAP!....a photo is automatically taken (you can set it on or off). I like that its flash memory as well (hard drives dont survive drops so well). I gotta say Sony put out one sexy stylish camcorder. It looks great in the hand and it definitely got some peoples attention. Once you get this camcorder you'll never want to go back to SD recording. Here are my PROs and CONs:

    PROS:
    + Amazing quality video
    + Lets you take a photo while filming
    + Smile detection
    + Ready to film once screen is open
    + Small and compact
    + Very good looking camera comes in three colors
    + Flash memory (bad/good you decide)
    + HDMI support

    CONS:
    - Not just any HDMI cable will work
    - Proprietary memory stick format (memory sticks are expensive)
    - Low 10x optical zoom
    - 3 hours recording time

    Love this camera and highly recommend it.

  • Works GREAT with Macintosh!!!
    I have a MACINTOSH LAPTOP with both imovieHD and imovie09. AS SOON AS THE CAMERA is connected imovie launches and a screen appears with ALL your movies shown (1st frame of movie is shown so you know which is which). You click a box to select the movies you want imported and the computer does the REST!

    PHOTOS are imported the same way: iphoto immediately launches when USB cable (supplied with camera) is connected between camera and MACINTOSH. You click all the pics you want imported and the computer does the rest!!

    The other mac guy doing the reviews is apparently an idiot....more info
  • great image, but.....
    I got this camera in april, and set out to take video and pictures right away to test quality. It is great, but you will only be able to see the full glory in your HD tv. If you try to copy to a disc, you will have to lower to SD (standard definition) until they come up with a copier for full HD. Until then I better keep the cards to view on tv. I have a dvd recorder I use to copy and edit videos I take on trips, (my old Sony tapes camera) and noticed that if I use HQ, comes pretty close to what I get from this camera. I must say that this camera is so easy to use and light. So, do not empty the cards, better carry a few ones, now that they are getting cheaper. I will wait for Blue Ray dvd recorder....more info

  • Good quality HD in a compact package
    This is a wonderful little Hd camcorder. For the price it is hard to beat. The quality of the video is better than I expected and very good overall. During very low light shooting it can get a little grainy. There is a decent amount of zoom and it is easy to operate. There are numerous settings regarding video recording, so there should be no problems in that category. Battery life is a little less than desirable, but that goes along with the small size. Overall I can't imagine a better bang for your buck than this little HD camcorder....more info
  • Perfect 1080p but no light on the camera.
    Its 99% perfect, but I would like a light. Price match amazon at bestbuy and save a hundred bucks. Great camera, No regrets....more info
  • Love love love!
    I love this camcorder. I had a Panasonic that I ended up returning because the software wasn't compatible with Vista. This Sony camcorder is small, light and I love the touch screen (even work with my nails haha). It's easy to use and creates great quality videos....more info
