Small, Lightwieght, with plenty of memory.

 

Have a camera enthusiast in the family who needs their first camera, but don't want to spend a lot? This could be it. Small enough to fit in a pocket or purse, yet sophisticated enough to empress most audiences with its creations.

Impressive Camcorder

 

Bought this camcorder to take movies of my newborn grandson. The quality exceeded my expectations, especially for the clearance price of less than $200!

This is my first full HD camcorder and I have found it easy to use and easy to set up. I'm also very pleased with the picture quality and size of the camera. Also the software provided by Sony is easy to use. No regrets with the purchase of this camera.
