    I liked the camcorder, it does what it supposed to do. Projector is cool, it's small but good enough for home use. Camera picture quality is good, liked the photo feature too.

    I love to document everything in my family's life this is my 3rd Sony camcorder. My previous being the DCR-SX85. This camera is just as easy to use and the best feature is the transferring of the video...very easy with wifi enablement. Love it!!!

    For the $, this is a very suitable camcorder that performs all the traditional features well. A good value for your dollar. Its zoom and picture quality are very good. Only features I don't like are low internal memory (you'll need a micro SD card) and its plastic exterior feels "kinda cheap" but all-in-all its a great camera and Sony is usually pretty reliable for me.

    This one has a built in projection feature which I like best. Other features are also nice: 60 frames per second for 1920x1080p (full HD), wi-fi, 30x optical zoom etc. I think the f is 1.8, which allows in low light to capture. I think SONY is the best in camcorder, so does this one.

    love the size and weight, plus the projector feature is a must have in my opinion. easy to use and batteries are fair in terms of recording time. very lightweight. use a small tabletop tripod and hold it for comfort when recording basketball games....love it.

    I decided I needed a video camera for my granddaughter. I checked several sites online and Best Buy had the best price plus I could pick it up at the store the next day. Product works great. It's easy to handle and takes great video plus plenty of extra features. Good but for the money.

    Bought this to use during my daughter's wedding. Lightweight and easy to use. Bought a 128 GB SD card and can record over five hours on one card. Bought two extra batteries and each gets almost two hours. The built in projector is awesome.

    I am glad deciding to buy this camcorder and choosing The wifi feature, whoever design the remote android app deserves gazillion kudos...!!! So handy, easy to operate and for the price I just couldn't expect less from Sony. Let's face it, even though this is for home recording the image resolution and it's user friendly interface features makes it an ideal buy. As with all electronics it's fragile, so be careful how you handle it. My last Sony camcorder is a 8 mm cartridge type but still works perfectly. It is a MUST to install the Sony Play Memories software which makes it easier to transfer and organize your media files. I am very satisfied with its quality.

    I purchased the camera to use on a cruise with my family. Didn't have a lot of time to review all features/uses before using the camera on our cruise. Camera seemed very easy to use and the projection feature was very unique and useful. I did experience a loss of all the photos/videos I took for the first three days. I opened the camera to review the pictures I had taken last and the display read "No photos or videos". Disappointed about the loss but I continued to use the camera during the rest of our cruise. I contacted Sony when I returned from the cruise but they didn't have much to say about the loss of my photos/videos nor did they offer to do anything about the loss.

    Built-in projector is actually effective! Well thought-out camera menu interface, 60x Clear Image Zoom is awesome. 8GB memory + 9.2 Mega-Pixel for great HD quality. Neat smart phone control with Sony app eliminates need for self timer - very handy. WiFi interface appreciated as well. Self capping lens - cant lose lens cap. Only wish would be longer run-time with the internal rechargeable battery. Make sure you use built-in USB charger hookup when projecting images during a meeting.

    Sony HandyCam HD AV/CHD- no box, cords or battery

    This camcorder is really nice as far as the clarity of pics, videos and sound, it's easy to use too. I love the projection feature but for me the main reason for this purchase was because I was looking for a WiFi capable cam. This one claims to be but it's not a strong feature at all. An app has to be installed and can only be sent to smart phones, no PC's or anything like that. SonyHandyCam can only"WiFi" pictures (not video, which defeats the purpose) to a smart phone after a long and frustrating ritual that would usually result in one thing or another not being supported, etc. So this is not a good purchase for me. I did get it on sale because someone else had also returned it once and there were no cords, no battery, box or paperwork. I am returning this item because I needed a WiFi capable camcorder & I already have the basic Sony HandyCam that's almost identical to this one. In the instance this is being considered for purchase as a good basic home video cam, these Sony HandyCams are great, but if you need wireless features I don't recommend paying extra for this one only because it claims to be wireless capable and essentially is not. Nicolle-:) My answer is yes and no regarding recommending it to a friend. It completely depends on what the product is needed for.

    Legendary Sony quality and light weight!

    I bought this as an open box item. Received it in pristine condition. I had also bought Cannon Vixia RF700 to compare. Even with battery put in the camcorder the SONY one was lighter and handy. The body (plastic) quality is good. The picture as seen on the camcorder screen was 'natural' in SONY and had an artificial tinge of color in the Cannon. The projector feature is awesome and comes in handy specially when every around is shouting at you to show what you just recorded! The zoom performance is better than the Cannon vixia and I could see less noise in the SONY when I zoomed to the max under a 60 watt lamp setting (lux 2700K). I have read reviews that say the screen is not a'touch screen'. Believe me I didn't find it to be a problem. The little joystick is all that you will need to browse through the option. Definitely a value for money!
