Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge   
The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables.  It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it’s out of the way until you need it.

Intelligent Auto (90 different scene combinations possible)   
Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes (90 different combinations possible): Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Low light, Macro, Portait, Baby, Walk, Tripod.

Golf Shot     
Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 22 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite “sequence shot” image, perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve, and other fast action.

This one feels like it's plastic.
Freddie May
For just basic recording, the camera is easy to use (one button to start recording) and the size of the view-finder makes it easy to tell what you are recording.
J. Lewis
The still shots are also very nice - just like a good point and shoot camera.

After the birth of my son, I wanted a camcorder to record the typical family memories. The goal was to get a camera that had great video quality, a wide-angle lens, able to shoot in a variety of conditions, and was small/easy to use. After owning this camera for a couple of months, I can say that it has definitely met my expectations.

When deciding what camcorder to buy, my experience with digital camcorders was basically nothing other than using the video setting on digital cameras/phones, so I had to do a lot of research just to know what was out there. After doing said research, I realized the situation was pretty typical of lots of technology: each major brand has a very similar product in each price-range and you probably can't go wrong with any of them unless the model just happens to have defects or something. I decided on this camera mainly because of the Sony brand and it having a wide-angle lens and decent internal storage.

Overall, this is a great camcorder. It is exactly what I wanted and there's not much I would change on it.

One warning (and not specific to this camera): if you will be primarily shooting to share over the internet with family and friends and aren't concerned so much with quality/features, you might be better off getting one designed to do that and save a few hundred dollars. Else, for every video you shoot, you'll need to convert it to an internet-friendly format. So, while you may be excited to send a video to grandma right after you shoot it, you'll need to go sit in front of a computer for a while and edit/convert it before doing so...

Positives:
- The quality of the video is great. You can output the videos on the camera to your HDTV with an HDMI cable and you'll definitely be amazed.

This is a nice camera with great functions, however, do not expect same from the body built. It feels more plastic in contrast to previous models. In addition, transition between builtin memory and additional memory (sd or ms) is not as user friendly as the other brands. Does it deserve to be priced for 800 bucks, no.

This was my first video camera, so needless to say I didn't want an overload of manual options that I had to tweak in order to get a good shot. The quality is great, but a little grainy in lower light situations. Sound is awesome, and even has a setting that tries to weed out wind noise (although I haven't truly put it to the test yet). We took it on a vacation to Disney and it worked flawlessly. Pictures taken when in Picture Mode were fantastic, but if you leave it in Video Mode and take a picture, it doesn't turn out near as good (this is because it has to take the picture at a lower setting). Since this was my first camera, I don't have much to compare it with, but I will say that I haven't regretted my decision. Great camera!

We had a Samsung 1080i camcorder we bought mid 2010. I thought that was the best camera in the world until we got this one from best buy. The picture is absolutely incredible and the stabilization made it easy to shoot a movie that looks like it was made by a professional. I'm giving it 4 stars because it is very expensive, but so far we love it.

I have owned the camcorder for about a year. I have not read the owners manual from top to bottom. I basically just open the lcd screen and push the record button. My largest pet peve with the camcorder is that it takes a long time between the time you open the lcd screen and the time you can start filming. I have small kids, when they start doing something that I would like to capture I get out the camcorder and find myself talking to myself, hurry up, hurry up, hurry up. I end up missing some key moments in the beginning. Also there is not an on button. It turns on and off automatically when you open the lcd screen. If you have small kids, I would so some research and locate a camcorder that can quickly start filming when you turn it on.

The camera is great for its class. I love the stabilization system. Great zoom. Picture is not as sharp as the pro class cameras but for home, youtube, internet videos and non commercial productions is more than enough. The still shots are also very nice - just like a good point and shoot camera. Of course it doesn't have the lens of a DSLR but it has some advantages to a DSLR - like much faster focus than a DSLR, much longer recording time and others. I love it. It's light and comfortable for traveling.

love this thing. the picture is amazing, the sound pick up is stellar and the internal memory is outstanding!! Plug in capabilities for more powerful external microphone and a screw on external lens!! the only thing I dont like is how it takes useless screen shots called highlights while I am filming. I dont use them and it just takes time that i could of used elsewhere deleting them. If i could figure out how to disable that this would be the PERFECT camera!
