It is very easy to record and save.
The 16GB of room is GREAT.
All I wanted was a small little camera to capture memories and moments, and if you want a camera to do just that, this is the one for you.
All you really have to do is open the screen and press record. It's awesome and I love it.
This product is so lighweight and easy to use. With this said I was amazed at the high quality video it produced. Uploading the video was so easy I was able to do it without assistance. I ordered this one day before my son's pre-school graduation. I was hopful but doubtful we would get it in time. Much to my satisfaction we received it and was able to create a beautiful video of his ceremony that will last a life time. Thank you for making this process so easy.
this camera is easy to use and records great movies easy to use with your computer
Love, Love, Love this camcorder. Also the program that comes with it is awesome and easy to use. I highly recommend this product.
This camera is not a good value in my opinion. What is the point of a 60x Optical Zoom when there is no image stabilization feature? It is very shaky when you zoom just a few feet ahead. I really wish I would have noticed the lack of Image Stabilizaiton before I bought it. Also, this won't matter to most people, but you CAN hear the zooming when you play back your video. I was recording something silent and when I played it back, it had a mechanical noise everytime I zoomed in or out. It doesn't have any fun features and it cuts my videos into clips which I can't figure out how to connect. In other words, if you are filming something, it cuts a new clip everytime you close the LCD screen instead of just continuing where you left off. I guess that is supposed to be convenient but I can't figure out how to connect them, so I have a bunch of 30 second clips instead of one 5 minute video. annoying. The positives are that it is tiny and lightweight, kind of easy to use, and the videos seem pretty clear. I can't comment on battery life because I leave it on the charger most of the time. Overall, if you want a basic camera and you aren't picky about shakiness (hopefully this isn't for recording your child's soccer game or for trying to film animals on a safari or something bc you need to be very close to whatever your filming), then this camera will be okay, but you should probably find something better for your money.
I have not had this very long. I purchased a JVC (GZHM30) with HD at the same time. I returned the JVC becasue it had no internal memory and the zoom was 40 optical versus 60 on the Sony. These are key features on this Sony. The Sony does not have HD but I filmed with both it and the JVC and really could not see a difference. I think both shoot a little dark. The Sony has a light but when I used it in a dark room, it really did not improve the video. The JVC did not have a light but the Sony light was not worth the feature. The JVC does not have a touch screen. I thought this would be ok but it is not like the old models that allowed you to use easy controls to move through the menu. The JVC was annoying to try to look back and forth between the screen and buttons. The menu features were also basic. I am concerned about the Sony touch screen eventually wearing out. The Sony will serve the purpose of having a light, compact and easy way to video. Nothing fancy here.
I am in my second year coaching high school volleyball. The camera the program had was from 1998 and used cassette tapes. This camera is very small and super lightweight. It's easy to run, and in my experience the battery lasts about two hours. It has a nice zoom on it. It's a really good camera for the price and perfect if you're wanting to burn DVDs for athletes or colleges.
Really like my new little handycam. Can transfer to dvd on computer. unlike old camera. We have piles of high 8 that need to be transfered and can only do through that camera. Great clear pictures, great sound. have new granddaughter coming and love to have lots of pictures of the family.
Simple to use, good movie quality
Same item in Sam's club is at least $20 less. This isn't hd so I passed and got a Toshiba camilo instead
I am still in the process of learning how to operate this little gem. So far so good! I have never owned a video camera before so it is all new to me and I'm learning on my own. Have taped my dog doing Lure Coursing and it taped beautifully. I will be taking it on a vacation with me in a few wks. and that will me my next big test.
the video camera exceeds expectations.
I used this last week to make a movie for my daughter's school project. I couldn't believe how easy it was. Just plugged in to my mac using the USB port and poof, the video was right there. Literally took seconds to upload. If you use iMovie 09 this is great!
This is the perfect camera for me. It fits in my pocket, is easy to use and has good picture quality. It's simple to handle as well. Perfect buy.
I bought this camcorder just about a week ago for my soon-to-be-here baby boy. I've been playing with it all week and can honeslty say I recommend this camera to anyone who is looking to record quality video/photo image memories. Easy to transfer to PC or external media. And it's software is just as easy to understand, edit, email, etc. Plus, wife loves the look. Dads, go get it !!!
I wanted several features and functions but also wanted a small compact size, and a good price. Got all with this camcorder. Combined camera so I don't have to carry around two devices. Cables for AV and USB come with it. Long battery life. Decent zoom for it's size. The audio picks up very well. Can add an SD card, not restricted to memory sticks. Nice viewing screen even in sunlight. Built in lens cover. And the price was not bad at all. I spent alot of time comparing. Once you go smaller, you lose feature options. This was the best compromise I could find to get compact size, features/functions I wanted, and decent price all in one.
This camcorder is perfect for me I've looked at all the reviews and bought this camcorder. Sony makes the controles simple but has a lot of features. Lots of people disliked the still camera but I thought it was very good. overall this camcorder was awesome
This camcorder has many great features, and is very easy to use. The zoom is very good, and the face detection is a remarkable addition! I recommend this camcorder to anyone who wants high quality in a compact, lightweight package.
The best in compact camcorders
