I am very pleased with this camera. It is everything that I expected it would be.

I am a screenwriter(unproductive thus far but working on it), and a hobbyist when it comes to directing and actual videography. That being said, I bought this camera for its "prosumer" capabilities (manual controls, quality image even in low light, Mic in head phone out, etc.) So I can shoot shorts worthy of presenting to local film community and festivals. I feel it is quite capable of delivering the images I prefer for such films. Heck, I may even shoot a no-budget feature on it 😉

If you are looking for a good handyman for recording family moments, your expectations will be surpassed -- and will be blown away by the projector!! And if you are a hobbyist filmmaker like myself, you will be quite pleased, with an A-cam or B-cam.

Yes. I ordered it Chrismas eve and received it within a week with all the parts.
I used it to record my daughters HS basketball game and was very pleased
with the HD picture quality. I still have to get use to using it, but so far it's a
nice upgrade.

I've this camcorder for a couple of weeks now. I've got it for several functioning reasons (mic input, light, stabilizer...). What blew me away was over the weekend as I videoed a music conference, the camcorder not only videoed it, it also took photos as it videoed. That was simply too HOT! I wanted to take photos, too, but I thought I couldn't. Who knew the Sony camcorder was doing it for me. Wow! Really nice.

There have been a few surprises that have been impressing me about this purchase. Very happy with the purchase thus far!

I love this camera... except for one minor detail. (Or possible defect?)

When I zoom all the way in on something that is black (whether it be an object or shadow) and it is in somewhat low lighting, there is pixel dropout. This is not motionless dropout where it's a few of the same pixels, it's more more like little white "twinkling stars" or "sparkles" that drop out momentarily. I first noticed this last night when I zoomed in to photograph the moon.

It's a bit frustrating, because it's quite noticeable. I'm fairly certain it's not the LCD viewfinder that's the issue - I tested this by playing back the recordings on my laptop and the dropout was still visible.

Is this a sensor issue? Or is the norm with these cams? I'd really like to fix this.

Besides this, I absolutely dig this camcorder.

did not know that it does not have a setting for PAL and only has NTSC. Its been rendered sort of useless for me.

I really like the camera, especially its anti-shake feature. I recently used it in a cab on fairly rough road. I had been under the impression that this feature would just compensate for your hands shaking a little. No Way! In the video you can see the dash board of the cab bouncing up and down from the pot holes, but what I was filming out the window was steady as a rock! Incredible, amazing technology. If you move the camera and look at the lens you will see that it stays in the same spot even though the camera body is moving.

This can also be a negative as you have to take that into account as you pan the camera. Since there is a bit of a delay in the pan due to the lens wanting to maintain the same position initially.

Unfortunately my camera had an audio issue with the built in microphone. Hissing sound and cutting in and out. Worked ok with external microphone so Sony is looking into that at the moment. I'm sure they'll take care of it for me.

The built in projector is only useful in a very dark room at the larger sizes, and in a shaded area for the smaller size projections. But still a neat feature for a quick preview of what you got.

Also I noticed on the built in screen that some shots look darker than they really are. Probably need to turn up the default brightness a bit since the same shot looked great when playing back on the PC.

Bottom line it takes great steady video, so I am very happy with it. I do wish they had included the night-mode for this price - would have preferred that to the built in projector.

I would also like to say that I found the online warranty process with Sony to be very good. It was good not having to go through the usual phone question and answer routine and just type what the problem was and get my shipping label!
