Consumer review by:

GREAT :) LOVE IT

 

great cam, very HAPPY :) see my poor video's to see the great picture and color. YOUTUBE: danny46809

great picture, great audio that consumer models don't have

weights 16 pounds and hurts my shoulder, with wireless rec. it could be 18 pounds

Consumer review by:

Pretty Good, But Not Great.

 

First of all, this camcorder is "HDV" not "DV," meaning that it captures video at High-Definition resolution, but with a very high compression rate (i.e. low quality). I bought Sony's original HDV camcorder, the HVR-Z1U, when it came out, and was ...

Affordable, HD-resolution, good low-light sensitivity, interchangeable lens, CF capability, four channels of audio

Hidden costs, lots of grain, possible manufacturing issues, audio-to-computer output needs work
