I entirely agree with the other two reviews regarding the quality of this Camcorder, HOWEVER, Sony claim this works with an 8GB Memory Stick. I won't say it doesn't, but I have now tried two, both Sony OEM and neither of them worked correctly.
True to say the camcorder recorded video and played it back, but only on the Camcorder. It would not upload using the Sony provided software, and the memory stick could not be read from my Sony Vaio PC, for which there is an inbuilt card reader. The Camcorder in fact warned of a possible memory stick error every time the camcorder was switched on.
The supplied 4GB memory stick worked fine in every respect....
I contacted Sony UK who were less them helpful, being so new it appears they have no experience or knowledge of the product. Equally, their website does not provide any support information. Indeed the Camcorder is not listed on their support pages, nor is the Camcorder listed as compatible with the 8GB memory stick.
My real disappointment is wanting a very small high quality camcorder with extended recording time (with the high capacity battery). The limitation with 4GB is not what I wanted......
