Vic, Keen amateur

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Good in theory
Bad points:
Cannot get a memory stick that it will accept. It will only accept memory cards that are not MagicGate - and I have yet to find a memory card that isn't MagicGate! So I have to record straight onto DVD - which wasn't the point of the camara.
