"Awesome video, photos. Controls need work."4.5 starson by getwired
Pros: High quality video and image, lightweight
Cons: LCD is fingerprint prone, controls are hard to learn
Summary: I actually have the SR12, which is only different by having more disk space - otherwise it is the same camera. It replaced an old Sony 8MM camera. What a WORLD of difference. Video is awesome, photos are great, even while taking video. The AVHCD works perfectly with iMovie on my iMac. Couldn't be happier. My only complaint is that the controls are way too complicated for many technical tasks, and there is too much "depth" to the menu system - hard to navigate. But otherwise, it's a great purchase.
