I am in no way a computer geek, I had no idea what optical zoom and finalizing disc's meant. But I am a mom that wanted quality home videos of my girls and wanted to spend less than $450. So here is my opinion. I returned my Samsung 164 for this camera. It was the same price but this has the Super Niteshot. The camera is very light and easy to control with one hand. The lens is made of glass versus the Samsung which is made of plastic. The zoom is amazing on this camera, I stood across my kitchen was able to zoom in on the small print on my calendar, AMAZING! I am so glad I took the Samsung 164 back - the indoor quality of that camera was horrible. This is excellent even in low light situations. Very pleased. I was also able to record on the DVD -R's which do not require formatting - just put the disc in and record. Oh and finalizing is just when you are done recording you go the menu on the camcorder press finalize and it does in about 1 minute it says it is complete and your done. Not as complicated as I thought it would be.

This unit records video straight to mini-DVD disks. You can plug the unit into a TV and play back, you can play back on the LCD, you can finalize the disk and put it into a standard DVD player, or a computer DVD drive. The unit comes with software to install on your PC that you can then use to edit the video clips, then re-burn to a new DVD if you have a DVD burner on your PC. The Zoom function on this unit it so powerful it's absurd. It has a standard 40X optical zoom that is more than enough. On top of that it has a digital zoom that you can program for 80X or a totally insane 2000X. I can zoom in on a single letter of a word, in a small print book, from 50ft away, and then the letter disappears and turns to pixels.

It has a "widescreen" setting in the video options, and the manual does not say that this model records in widescreen, but it does! It also has a really cool nightshot feature that uses Infrared Radiation so you can film in total darkness. The sound quality of this unit is what most impressed me. Very clear, and it has a dolby 5.1 surround converter. It weighs less than 1 pound, and the battery lasts for 90 recording minutes on a full charge.

I have had quite a few camcorders over the years (none of them Sony), and when I was looking for a new one, I did my usual 3-4 weeks of researching, etc. I chose the Sony DVD handycam because it was easy to use, the menu was pretty straightfoward, it had a 40x optical zoom (compared to 32x) and it was DVD. I was skeptical about the dvd part because I had heard about the minimal recording time, etc but I didn't understand the different disk formats I guess. Anyway, I am very pleased with this camcorder, and being able to shoot in a 16:9 format is also a nice feature I didn't even think about at first. So, although I am new to Sony camcorders, I am really enjoying this one. My only advice would be to go ahead and buy the memory stick and the disk pack when you buy the camera because you will want them!

I research the daylights out of everything. So I wind up usually buying a menage of names since I don't believe any manufacturer is good at everything. Since my college days in the mid-80s, I've hated Sony products. I've always believed they waded into far too many product lines and their quality suffered. So, up until this purchase I've owned nothing Sony for 20 years. Based on the reviews, though, I just purchased this camcorder and broke it in during a trip to Berlin. You cannot beat the price for the quality. Superb zoom (optical really counts as digital blurs the picture and is artificial), easy menu, great night shot capability. All in all, a wonderful purchase. Do not hesitate to buy this Sony. Tip: get a pack of DVD+RWs to play with since you can re-record and get a pack of dual layer Rs once you're comfortable because they have much more recording space but you CANNOT re-record on them.

This is the first electronic gadget I have bought in years that I was able to figure out in minutes!

Out of the box, after a 2 hour charge (gave me a chance to watch the tutorial and scan the manual) I was

making movies! I have not used the high quality setting yet but the mid-range is pretty darn good! The

most impressive feature is its "anti jitter" filtering. Any other Camcorder I have ever tried makes my

movies look like I am in the middle of an earthquake! Not with this one! (unless you are at max zoom) The

optical zoom is far more than needed so I never expect to even use the digital zoom. There is an "easy"

mode that automatically sets the camera to adequate settings. And it actually works.

The only thing I am having problems with is getting the camera to connect to the PC. The camera says

"connecting" and just hangs. I have a call in with Sony and will report back. I suspect better editing

software will cure that. The software provided is very basic. The workaround for now is to just insert

the DVD directly into the PC then use the software to read and edit it. It would be nice if you could

"finalize" the DVD on the PC rather than in the camcorder.

Initialy, I purchased the Camcorder alone to see how I like it but I just ordered ALL the options!
