    Customer Product Reviews

    Rated 3.2 out of 5★áby 21reviewers.
    Rated 3 out of 5★áby Pleased so far Bought camera approximately two weeks ago. It replaces a sony cam we bought in 2000 that would have cost more than a new one to fix the prob. Person at Sony told me that. Video quality is good. Really just used it for an extended time on 8/31/12, really first thing I have had to video since I got it & it took good video. Have seen people said low video quality but I think like any camera, it depends on the lighting conditions. As far as the pic quality, I'll reserve judgement on that for now. Pics I took so far are grainy but the light conditions were not good so that may be why. People have to understand one thing, these cameras today don't have tapes in them anymore. They are hard drive and memory card system and probably any of them won't take the best video/pics. With tapes they did take good video/pics. Times have changed and this is what there is now, people may not like it, but it is what it is. 09/01/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great price & great product - works perfectly 11/07/2011
    Rated 2 out of 5★áby Functions are to difficult to get to The digital focus is useless and the manual focus is not really manual also the night vision is very poor but besides that everything else is OK. Overall though I am not impressed with it. 08/28/2012
    Rated 4 out of 5★áby Excellent except in bright sunlight I am very impressed with this camera except when trying to see what I'm filming in bright sunlight. Unfortunately the screen reflects my own face back at me rather than what I'm filming. Must be a way around that ... some non-reflective coating or something? Other than that, zoom is fantastic, video is crisp and clear, sound is good. 11/06/2012
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great camera for the price. I have been using this camera for the past year twice a month excellent camera. 12/07/2012
