  • Best value 3CCD digital camcorder

    By Jose  Oct 22, 2004

    ### I have been using this camcorder for at least a month now and it's truly amazing. Although i have heard about the superiority of 3ccd cams compared to a single ccd, i never really thought that the difference is as remarkable to say the least. I don't...think i have to elaborate on the camera's specs nor it's capabilities. I can only say my experience with this camera. So far, the video performance on this camera far exceeds my expectations. Other 3ccd camera like Panasonics may perform as well but i like my sony and it's design to me is very pleasing. Ergonomically pleasing and solidly built.Also when somebody mentions 'broadcast quality' video, that's exactly what you get from this camcorder. It's so vivid it's amazing. The touchscreen display is not as annoying as people would suggest. It's easy to learn. Alot of people make bad comments on this camera without even trying just because they like another brand. Please do your research and invest wisely. Read more Less
