This is super product, great addition to our gear here at WHPS (West Houston Paranormal Society) for long overnight investigations on complete darkness. The fact that it doesn't use outdated tapes allows us to quickly transfer to our computer to review and show our clients.
Great feature for the advanced but still easy to use for first timers to look like a big movie producer.

Loved the value, had been pricing in stores and this was by far the best value and the extras were a bonus!!! Decided to buy it for the name and the value. There is nothing that I dislike about this camera. I am not camera or computer savvy and the instructions were easy to understand. I also decided to buy this product because I had an old camera, much larger and it quit working. My 11 year old son is involved in sports and it has always been very important to me to record events in his growing years as well as everyday things. I didn't have this luxery growing up and wish that I had.
I am a consumer and a loyal customer to Sony products. I like their camcorders and DSLR cameras. I especially like their SR 45 HDD camcorders, with the high zoom of 40x and the various functions the camcorder has. It is always perfect to bring on a vacation, with its sleek, light and compact size. A precious moment can be taken instantly.
For a Sony lover, there's really nothing to dislike. However, to request for a HDD and a HD combination of a higher zoom, ie. 60x2000x. Sounds impossible now, but perhaps Sony will come out with that type.
Going the Hard Drive is truly a great way to go. No other disks or media to buy, ever.
Downloads to DVD which is a must for any unit.
Nice features. Joystick menu great option.
Outstanding night vision mode.
Great zoom capability
Cons Hard to find much.
Buy a 2nd battery though as battery gets sucked dry quickly.
9 out of 10
Already looking at buying another unit as my son liked it so much he now has it.
Versatill camcorder and camera. Excellent optics and extremely versatill. Lightweight yet sturdy feel. With optional lens and long life battery the ideal setup for light weight traveling (now that the airlines are carging extra fo luggage. Sony Keep up the Good Work!
i was looking for a camera with no tape or cd i saw this one and had to have it . the one touch burning to cd is the best just install the software hook up the cable and touch th burn button . the camera takes care of the rest . this is a great camera and well worth the money
I’m having a blast with this camera. The night vision is great and the 40X optical zoom gets you up close with a very sharp image. The functions are straight forward and simple to understand. I recommend this camera to any first time buyer or novice.
I really can't think of anything bad to say about this camcorder.
Has a great battery life, a great picture. I love the fact that you can "one click burn" to a disc.
The infa-red night vision is sweet. Love and would recommend to anyone.
PS. Very light weight as well, when the UPS brought it, the box was so light, I thought there wasn't going to be anything in it!!
I managed to get this camcorder at an amazing price. I've already done some recordings and the quality and ease of use is great! The on screen navigation is so easy to use that you don't need to read the owners manual to figure out how this thing works. I would highly recommend this product to any ameture who wants high quality outcome.
