Very impressive

By RetiredGrandpa

from Connecticut

Comments about Sony High Definition Black Camcorder:

I replaced a 11 year old Canon mini digital (film) camcorder with this Sony so the improvements are unbelievable. HD 1080 output is truly excellent. And when I connected the camera to my Sony HD flatscreen with the supplied HDMI cable, the TV automatically turned on and switched the HDMI input to the correct port. It has a lot of great features in this price range: touch screen (easy to use) controls, a good zoom, 16GB of built in memory, built in USB cable and you can use a Sony memory stick or any high capacity SD card. It comes with a low capacity battery that's standard in any manufactuers camera(s). Now I'm really ready for my 3 grandkids antics.

Nice camera

By Gaaaare

from Virginia

Comments about Sony High Definition Black Camcorder:

I have used this camera in some very difficult lighting situations and it has worked really well. The modes that let you use the touchscreen to manually select which parts of the scene you want expose correctly or focus on are real lifesavers. I just shot a high school musical with terrible lighting and it really saved the day. I wish the zoom rocker eased into a zoom a little less abruptly. The minimum zoom speed available on the rocker is too high. I recently discovered that the zoom buttons on the touchscreen zoom more slowly, so I will try those the next time I am out. I connect the camera with its built-in USB cable to my Mac and the clips import directly into Final Cut Pro X with no fuss. It also mounts as a storage device so I can share clips with others easily, on the spot. The extreme amount of optical zoom is great and the stabilization works well. I am very happy with this purchase.
