    Comments about Sony DCRSX85/S Handycam 16GB Flash Memory Digital Camcorder:

    Bought camera approximately two weeks ago. It replaces a sony cam we bought in 2000 that would have cost more than a new one to fix the prob. Person at Sony told me that. Video quality is good. Really just used it for an extended time on 8/31/12, really first thing I have had to video since I got it & it took good video. Have seen people said low video quality but I think like any camera, it depends on the lighting conditions. As far as the pic quality, I'll reserve judgement on that for now. Pics I took so far are grainy but the light conditions were not good so that may be why. People have to understand one thing, these cameras today don't have tapes in them anymore. They are hard drive and memory card system and probably any of them won't take the best video/pics. With tapes they did take good video/pics. Times have changed and this is what there is now, people may not like it, but it is what it is.

    Not very pleased

    By Window

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Sony DCRSX85/S Handycam 16GB Flash Memory Digital Camcorder:

    I'm disappointed with the video quality. I've been using a Flip video which has poor sound but good video. This camera gives me just the opposite. It makes no sense at all that I should pay nearly double the money and get poorer video resolution on a video camera, but that’s what I got with the Sony DCR-SX85. Bought it today and definitely taking it back to the store tomorrow. I really had big hopes for this camera. Sony…If you’re listening…I’d like to suggest that you put the Flip video system into the Sony DCR-SX85 and you’ll have a way better camera.

    DCR-SX85 Camcorder

    By Mermaiden

    from VA

    Comments about Sony DCRSX85/S Handycam 16GB Flash Memory Digital Camcorder:

    I wish I could comment on the video quality, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to burn a dvd so I can actually see what I taped!! The manual says I need to purchase special software to do this...Why? Oh, I know... so Sony can make more money? But... When I look up accessories, no additional software is listed to purchase? WOW! I guess I have to search for it on Google... Hope that once this issue is resolved, I'll like my camcorder!! My son isn't getting any younger! :-)

    Very Disappointed

    By JettaJill31

    from Grain Valley, MO

    Comments about Sony DCRSX85/S Handycam 16GB Flash Memory Digital Camcorder:

    I researched video cameras before purchasing this model and I thought this would be perfect for me. My mother-in-law has an older Sony Handycam and it takes amazing pictures and video. This model however is awful. Do not waste your time or money. I'm returning mine and buying something else. I kept thinking it was a setting that I hadn't found. I read the manual repeatedly and played with the settings. No such luck. This is just not a good product. Extremely grainy no matter what, both video and pictures are grainy. The quality looks like something I would have expected in the 1980's. This is ridiculous for 2011.

      Comments about Sony DCRSX85/S Handycam 16GB Flash Memory Digital Camcorder:

      Needed to replace my 10 year old Sony Mini DV camcorder and wanted to stay with standard definition - Took this and the Panasonic SDRT70 home for a side by side comparison. I filmed a 10 minute clip on each camera that included interior shots for low light filming and exterior shots following my kids on their scooters for zooming and panning. Even though their price is only $10 apart the difference in image quality played back on my TV was like night and day. My old camera cost over $1,000 and this new one has comparable video quality for less than $300. All of the other added functions make this camera a steal. My wife uploaded a clip straight to Facebook and I have burned video straight onto DVD's as well as backing the files up on my computer.

        Comments about Sony DCRSX85/S Handycam 16GB Flash Memory Digital Camcorder:

        Video portion of the camera works fine, and features are handy to use, but photos taken by the camera were absolutely terrible. Bad enough that I thought to myself, what's the point of even putting a camera feature in there? Very grainy, poor light, etc. I'm returning this product to the store.
