Not as good as expected

P. Poulain, Amazon
9 August 2009
  • Summary: I hesitated between this item and the Sanyo equivalent. I used it for 3 months at which point the shutter failed to open and therefore I was unable to use at all. It was send back to Amazon who replaced it with a brand new one, great service there!

  • Summary: The first two people that saw my video of Scotland asked me "Where can I get that?"! The 16GB/sec is incompatible with the 15GB/sec (cannot be played on) on the HDR-CX6EK and according to the net there is something innovative about the 16GB format?

BEWARE - Proprietary Software Nightmare

Mrs. Katie-jayne Fletcher, Amazon
9 December 2008
  • Summary: As with all Sony Products the hardware is first class but they absolutely ruin this following their pathological obssession with proprietary software. Whereas most other technology manufacturers are focusing on total compatibility; Sony remains the antithesis to this in some forelorn belief that it...

Great video images but stills not so good

VM, Amazon
9 December 2008
  • Summary: This is a beautiful camera. It feels surprisingly solid for such a small object. Video images taken with this camera is superb but because the camera is so small that without supporting it against something solid you get quite a shaky image if you zoom in.

Gadget Freak, Amazon
9 December 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the Sony TG3 and have been extremely impressed with it. As a Mac user, I am always concerned with the compatibility of any products I buy, and was sorry to see that some reviews have said that the Sony TG3 will not work on a Mac.

Compact, easy to use and great picture quality

Paul, Amazon
9 December 2008
  • Summary: I've had the TG3 6 weeks now and used it a fair bit. I bought it to replace a slightly bulky 5 year old DV camcorder. My main priorities were small size so it's easy to carry around and widescreen HD picture as that's what most new TVs are these days. I've been very pleased with the picture quality.
