This is awesome. That little Sony video cam that used the little tiny disk was a flop. It was horrible to use and was always interrupting the video taping by putting up an error mark saying recovering disk data. It intimidated me so much and I have hardly used it, piece of crap. Well, to make a long story short, Friday night when I got home from the last class (4:00 PM), I phoned the Brick to complain about how lousy this camera was (my opinion), the problems with it (which had been non-stop) and the store manager told me to bring it in and he would return it as faulty. So we did. We were going to upgrade to a higher model of mini disc type. BUT when we got there and talked to the salesman he said that Sony had come out with a new model that did not operate on tape or disc, just an internal hard drive.
Well, hold the door!!! That intrigued me and made me a prospective buyer in a second, no disc, no tape. Just download onto hard drive, download to computer and burn disc. this camera's hard drive can hold over 20 hours of videotaping. Now how easy is that. A tiny little camera that holds in your hands easily. I am so excited. It is the new technology that surpasses tape or disc in great ways. Now I can get back to video recording. I have lost so much data with the little other camera it makes me sick. So, me and my camera.
Technology is changing rapidly, we all know that. But if you want to have something really user friendly. Check out this camera with the hard drive. I believe that JVC also has it. They brought it out before Sony did. All have the best of the best day. Cindi
