I purchase a Sony DCR-HC90E a few days ago - what can I say?! - this is the worst retail purchase I have ever made in my life! I am 51 years old - have been a keen photographer for 40 years - I have used PCs proficiently for 15 years - Sony clearly just want a joke at public expense -How do they get away with it??! The supplied software is utter crap. You want to burn to a DVD? Buy a Sony PC!! The effing arrogance of those Sony people!
Does anyone know how to get the data off the camera onto/into anything other than a CD-R? I have used an evaluation copy of BLAZE Media Pro which can take the data to hard disk but the video image is either "sqeezed" in the horizontal or "stretched" in the vertical - whichever it's distorted.
Also I have a Sony TV - (yes I must be a masochist because I've never been able to record to VCR in the 5 years that I've had the TV) - so no surprise that by following the instructions in the DCR-HC90E for connecting to the TV results in nothing whatsoever happening. Any clues as to what to actually do would be gratefully received.
Do I sound pissed off? Not half!! In the last 24 hours I've discovered that the internet is overrun with "Hate Sony" sites, but no doubt the Sony PCs used by those faithful robot workers in Sonyland prevent any unwelcome exposure to reality!
