Summary: Bought this camera used like new for £55 including postage. My only gripe is no record indicator light which would be of great benefit in bright sunshine. Otherwise it is superb, the picture quality is clear and i was able to read the writing on a holiday postcard. The zoom is fantastic! Worth up to £150 but not above due to absent indicator light.
Summary: As another reviewer says this is a tiny camcorder. It's only slightly bigger than the Cybershot. However, anyone with large hands is going to struggle with this little thing. I have tiny hands (the strap is if anything a bit big for me, even adjusted down to the smallest size). The Carl Zeiss lens is impressive; however, colour handling is dull when shooting indoors in poorer light - which is what you'd expect.
Summary: For the price this is a very good camera. Picture quality is decent (maybe more saturation would have been better), very easy to use, and sound quality is pretty good. First Sony camera with an SD Card slot. That is great! Well built, but an optical image stabilizer would have been better. Oh and don't expect to shoot anything at night. Software provided is not good at all on the other hand, I just don't use it.
