"basic, 60gigs! 60X zoom!"4.0 starson by yopaulyyo
Pros: Slap the battery on the charger. Start recording after messing with it for half an hour. 60X zoom is great for getting up close filling the screen with 3 keys on your keyboard. 60 gig harddrive for tons of video.There's a slot for a memory stick pro
Cons: These aren't cons but had to put something over on this column. Lack of finer controls but that's the beauty of this cam. The oem battery is only 500 ma. Puleeeaassee. A 60 Gb memory and a dinky little 500ma battery? WT.... Already bought a 4000 ma.
Summary: Simple enough for anyone. Good size harddrive. Very cool zoom. Could use a bigger battery from the manufacturer. Come on, Sony! Can you cut us a break with the accessory sales? Under 400 bucks!
