    We've got 4 kids at home, including a 2-year old and a 10-month old, so Xmas is an exciting time of year. We didn't want to spend a lot of money, and we didn't really care if we weren't getting all the "bells and whistles". We aren't planning on doing anything fancy with the videos we take. If you're looking for a camcorder that's compact and easy to use, then this is the one for you. The battery that's included with the product has a max life of about 1 hour when it's fully charged....which is not necessarily optimal, especially when you're trying to capture snip-its of Christmas morning or anything else that might drag on for a while. The internal memory is similarly limited. It's handy that the 4GB internal memory fills up in about the same amount of time that the included battery lasts when it is fully charged. You can purchase a larger battery, and of course, you can also purchase memory cards that hold a lot more data than 4GB worth. The editing software that comes with the camera is easy to use...and includes options to upload videos directly to all of the major social networking sites (i.e. Facebook, YouTube, etc.). If this thing would have come with a carrying case, it would be an even better deal. Oh well, beggers can't be choosers! The video I posted for this review was shot by this camcorder and then cut from my little girl's Xmas show at school. The editing only took a few minutes.

    We needed a video camera to take to Las Vegas and the grand canyon. I read alot of reviews on this camera and read that still pictures were not very good on this camera. Since I was taking a digital camera with me also I was not too concerned with how the still pictures would look on the video camera. We took alot of video and still pictures. when we got home we transferred the pictures to our computer. the videos turned out very good and I was pleasantly surprised at how the still pictures turned out. Very crisp and clear, although as with any camera, night pictures are difficult to take. I am so happy with the pictures I no longer need to take my still camera with me on vacation. This camera is a very good value and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to take everyday photos and video.

    This video camera is much smaller than I expected but certainly gets the job done. I have not used the still images feature so I cannot rate that; however, the video quality and ease of use is fantastic. I have previously used mini-DVD cameras and found them to be bulky and sometimes difficult to download & edit. This new camera is small and light and I can simply remove the memory card, stick it into my PC and it automatically uploads to wherever I want the footage. I definitely recommend getting one or two memory cards if you plan to use the camera alot; the internal memory hold only about one hour to 1.5 hours. I would also get a second battery as it last only about the same length, less if its hot and sunny.

    So far I have found this camera to be pretty handy. I use it in the woods for wildlife, and bought it primarily for the 60x zoom. The sony records in mpeg format and I find that much easier to work with than the proprietary format the comparable JVC uses. The zoom is great, the picture quality is decent. It is a SMALL camera. To small for my hands. The photo quality is not near as good as the video quality.

    First of all, this camcorder isn't HD people! Its only standard definition, also when you edit/convert/save videos, the quality is always reduced. So with that in mind, don't go hoping for HD quality out of a $200, STANDARD DEFINITION CAMCORDER! I had a digital camera before this that shot HD video in 720P. The only reason why I bought this was because it had a LED light, optical zoom, and auto focus, something my digital camera did not have or do when recording. I am a pretty picky person and I can not be happier with the price and video quality. This camcorder is really quite small and should easily fit in a coat pocket or something like that. Its also very light weight. Both of these were nice because the last camcorder I had was from 2006, things changed a lot since then. The 60X zoom is insane, but when you are getting far out there it becomes shaky as expected. Auto focus seems to work great, and I manage to do about 120 minutes on the included battery. The touch screen works fine and is VERY responsive, you don't have to hit it spot on, so that is nice seeing as its smaller and people with large fingers may use that. The LED light is fairly bright surprisingly, no, its not stadium lamp bright, but very nice for what it is. This camcorder also has 4GB of memory built in and can take SD cards for extra. The Sony PMB is what I use to transfer the videos to my computer AND play them. Overall I am happy with this camcorder, and definitely feel I got a good deal for what I paid, which was a bit less than the price advertised here.

    I just had my 2nd baby in July and my video camera stopped working. I decided to take advantage of the Black friday Sales and searched high and low for a new video camera. I compared all stores and styles. This camera was the best deal for its price range. It is so tiny, it fits in the palm of my hand. It has a touch screen that is easy to use, along with some buttons on the actual camera. it has a slider to close the lens, so no losing the lens cap. The quality and clarity of the screen is amazing. Everyone I show comments on how clear the screen is and how crisp the video looks. The internal memory holds quite a bit, I have yet to add my memory card on it and have taped about an hour. Playback on the screen is easy and you can find each separate taping, its not all on a tape, so you can pick which one you want to watch. I have yet to upload and watch anything on the computer. I will need to install the program it came with and do that next.

    My hubby & I bought this primarily to take along to our honeymoon but we played with it for quite some time. The pic quality is good & the video quality is better. You definitely need to be in good lighting to get the best results. Overall we love the compact size and ease of use. Get it folks!!!
