It also has a Highlight Playback function that creates movies with transitions and soundtracks for you automatically. With the HDR-CX210, you can use the Direct Copy feature to transfer your HD footage directly to a hard drive without even using a PC.

Easy to use for our coaches. very portable.
I did not purchase from this site but wished I had because I paid $100.00 more. The Handycam has a lot of useful features that really impress me and more then that the ease of use is a big plus. The camera is smaller then it looked on the web but don't let the size full you because it does a awesome job on video's and pictures..You can't go wrong buy one :)
Battery runs out within extremely short time. The internal memory is not at all helpful. (8 GB is just making fun of a video camera, and something that should be HD ...) Not really high quality, as promised you the store ...
