3.0 out of 5 stars Great but not amazing, March 16, 2010
This review is from: Sony HDR-XR200VE 120GB Pal HDD High Definition Camcorder (Electronics)
i ordered this product off Amazon around a year ago so i know its ups and downs quiet well, i used this camera for my multi-media classes to make short movies and advertisements, it was a great experience, the bottom line is the camera is great outdoors but needs alot of lighting indoors, just a few light bulbs won't do the job of decent lighting, the camera's zoom with 1080p is amazing, the best thing about this camera is the sound quality it records without attaching any attachments like a shotgun mic to it, i was extremely impressed with how clear the sound was as oppose to other brands, even when the person is pretty far it wasn't a problem, it also have a zoom-mic option that can come in handy.

the main reason i gave it a 3/5 which is also the reason that gave me a really hard time shooting was it had no microphone jack, so i couldn't install a boom mic or a shotgun mic or any type of mic that will give me smooth crystal clear sound. What also really annoyed me is you could ONLY install sony accessories because the way accessories were installed in the camera was different from other camera's, i had alot of stuff i wanted to use with the camera that i didn't simply because it won't install on the camera.

having a camera with an HDD was a great idea, but out of every (approx) 50 video's i recorded i had one that was corrupted and wouldn't open. Not sure if its just my camera.
