Small, lightweight and packed with features. Easily one of the best value for money buys in the DVD Camcorder range.

Supplied battery doesn't last very long, so you have to spend more money on a longer lasting battery for parctical use.

various language including my own, infrared, some special function such as cande light mode.

Very slow start up could miss out on inportan footage, better to be ready all the time instead of a quick press power on and than recording.

Fairly basic unit that was bought for parents (in 70s) as their first digital camcorder. They are delighted with it and after a little while getting the hang of it are now producing good results. Good solid performer from Sony.
