I can now say that I was lucky that my old camcorder broke even if I had to spend 260 odd pounds. This camcorder it is really cool and...

It is a product that is anyone's dream come true!!! I've had a chance touse it as a friend owns it!!! The picture quality it offers is unmatchable and has a great ease of use.I personally am a great fan of the product and plan to own it as soon as my pocket allows me to do so because i've become a complete admirer of this product ever since i've used it . Even my four year old son loves the movie we made using it and he just loved posing for it . He keeps asking me mama when will u shoot me again with the handycam as i love to see myself in the T.V. and my answer to his question is --- it'll be as soon as possible baby!!!!!!!

“Sony”

Consthe time that the battery can last

Sony's display technology is nice comparing with others such as JVC, Panasonic, Samsung. For this product, the price is cheap, very valued. But how long the battery can last? For those people who travel out, it is very important fact. Sony's accessories' prices are always not cheap. People cannot...

Basically, it does what it says on the tin - the handycam is handy...

Bought this product in Jan 07 for about £300 from Comet. Worked ok for 16 months and then the mother board inside completely failed. Estimate to repair £285. If you are thinking of purchasing this item. 1. I wouldn't 2. If you do,take out extended warranty. Also the microphone on the camcorder picks up any hint of a breeze and makes it sound like you are standing in the middle of Hurricane Katrina. Will not be buying another Sony camcorder!!
