This camera lives up to it's name very well, it's one very "Handycam"! This lil camera weighs next to nothing and is a very small unit which makes it very appealing for me because you can take it anywhere to any event and take some very respectable video. The focus system is very smart and quick to lock in on faces. The zoom is amazing! It really pulls in the long shots while maintaining a nice stable image. The 4 gigs of internal memory gives you an hour of recording time on Hi Quality mode, 80 mins. in SP mode and 175 Mins. in LP mode. It also accepts memory cards up to 32 gigabytes for 8 hours of additional HQ time. The touch screen has menus that are a breeze to negotiate. This little gem is packed with a ton of features and loaded with quality. I've gotta say, "I'm very impressed with this little powerhouse". If you don't have to have a Hi-Def camcorder then this unit will give you everything you could ask for.

Small size is good. Only need one hand to film. Problems are that there is no way to add external audio. Have to use the built-in mic. Not a good thing if you want to film any sound and if you want interview - forget it. Odd way that the data is stored and the interface is a pain in the neck to get to change or fix camera storage. Flaky internal memory - sometimes it says that it is full when there are no files on the camera. Not a very high quality of still image. Low levels of resolution even at its highest level. Almost there, but not quite.

external memory stick
from ATLANTA GA
I HAVE 16GB MEMORY STICK ON IT BUT DO NOT KNOW HOW TO CHANGE FROM INTERNAL TO EXTERNAL MEMORY WHEN THE INTER IS FULL OR JUST USE THE EXTERNAL AS IT IS LARGER
from Walnut Creek, CA
I got my Sony DCR-SX44 for Christmas. I've been wanting itfor several months. I was so excited I got it, and ever since then i've been using it for ever. It is great quality for a SD camcorder and is very small and sleek.
I love it!

Looks can be deceiving
from Houston, TX
I bought this camera happily at a Best Buy. I've used it quite a bit and the Picture/camera quality is terrible. I put a picture of a pencil I took in a normal lighted area.

LOVE THIS CAMERA
from Hanover Park, IL
This camera is the perfect size for your purse or small bag. The design is perfect. I have videoed fast action volleyball and it works perfectly for playback. The only thing I did not like was that I had to open the lens myself. However, that is one less thing I have to worry about breaking. It is OVERALL a great camera for everyday use.
Small & efficient but...
from Chelmsford MA
Great camera for the amateur, which I am, but still disappointed in the video quality. Lots of wash-out if you shoot in bright sun and picture fuzzing. If your play back device is a small screen your OK, but on a computer screen or TV, the video is very fuzzy. I'm using a MacBook Pro with iVideo software for editing.
For what it is designed ...
from Ann Arbor, MI
For what it is designed for, this little camcorder is excellent. I have used it to record my children in their marching band formations during shows and have no problem with zooming in and out, panning around, and picking up their music with this camera. It mounts nicely on a monopod for this purpose. I also used it to record the approach of a severe thunderstorm and flooded basement. It works very well in low light (distant lightning recording) as the light was not strong in the basement and everything that needed to be seen was recorded. When recording weather events, like the storm, I forgot to lock the focus at infinity, so as to keep the camera focussed when looking at areas of the sky that have faint or little optical detail. When reviewing marching band formations, the people at periferal areas of the image were slightly out of focus as opposed to sharp focus in the central area of the image. That is OK as this is not a professional-grade camera. I am very satisfied with this product.
Great Camcorder for Great Price
from Santa Clarita, CA
I bought this as a gift for my daughter and she loves it. Easy to use and lightweight. She likes the touchscreen display and that it has a built in camera. Buying another for myself now!
