Summary: we got the price at a good price. the zooming needs a little improvement but the quality of pictures is bar none great for the proice advertised. wish it had flash, though. but, beggars cant be choosers, lol.
Simple to use one finger zooming and recording. Small to carry around. Luv!

Summary: I bought this camcorder to record fast moving videos inside and outside an it works for both, great product for the price, all videos come out clear and crisp. Easy to use and play back, battery seems to last a very long time. Perfect for me.
Summary: I bought this for travel to Disney World last month, and this had served well from the beginning from Airport to all Theme parks. Only minor thing I didn't like was the focusing in the night for the fireworks. I know it's not easy to take a video of fireworks with steady focus with auto focusing option. Compare other sony camcorder this one doesn't have a good auto focus for that purpose. Other than that, this works really well, and HD quality was really good.
Summary: All in all, this is a lovely camcorder. The hd and pictures and are very nice, and the zoom isn't bad either. it gets 1 hour of battery for continual use. the one thing I would change is the light conditions. it does badly in low light ocnditions and gets grainy. but great in stores, house, or outside! The volume is decent, and the effects are nice. you can fade in/out,choose black and white, sepia, art film, and more, and use time lapse.
Summary: I was looking for a full HD cam but under $250. I thought I hit the jackpot when I saw this for $299. Full HD, sub compact, excellent lens at f1.8, this was a dream com true! Then I woke up. The lowlight performance isn't that great. Even with super low light selected, and a 1.8 lemse. Best performance is dependent on how much light you have (duh!), but by early evening and with dusk light, you'd think you shot video with an iPhone. Switch grip is a bit fidly.
Summary: Received the item as described. Video quality is comparable with my other camcorder but this is in HD. Not as quick in focusing though. Sound is clear enough. I would say this is good for the price. Added value is the switch grip and you can also charge this thing via USB if you dont have your wall charger with you. And i got this item very fast-- thanks Big Value,, faster than amazon prime.
not a professional, but wanted something reasonable yet decent

Summary: I bought this camcorder for hubby for x-mas (2011). Had item for a few months now and Very happy with it.(HMX-Q10BN) the picture quality is awesome even at lower resolution settings. He mainly uses for sport events (coaches kids), so need to use zoom a lot. Have no problems with zoom. also got a tripod as 2 hours videotaping could be much, even with the feather-light weight of the camcorder. battery does not last the 2 hours so getting back-up pack.
Summary: I compared a lot of camcorders before I decided on the HMX-Q10. After reading reviews on models from many different manufacturers, I decided to give this one a try. I was very impressed. I shot some sample videos at home before using it to film my daughter's chorus concert. When I watched the videos on my HDTV, I was very impressed at the picture quality, even at high zoom, and the whole concert was in low light.
