Sony HDR-CX100

CNET
17 July 2009
  • Summary: You can tell where Sony cut corners on this compact, flash-based HD camcorder. While it's decent, there are better options for the money than the Sony Handycam HDR-CX100.
  • Pros: Compact and attractive; above-average low-light video.
  • Cons: Not terribly great lens; occasionally awkward design.

Sony HDR-CX100 Review

Digitaltrends
31 March 2009
  • Conclusion: We congratulate Sony for breaking the $600 barrier for a quality full HD camcorder. It’s just a matter of time before the $500 wall is breached – praise be! We’ve always been fans of HD camcorders, but the caveat has always been price. Now, for the most part, this is gone. Granted, the CX100 isn’t the most fully-featured model on the block, nor does it do greatest job in low light.
  • Pros: Cheapest "real" AVCHD camcorder yet; easy to use; quality LCD touch screen
  • Cons: No optical image stabilization, heavy noise in low light

Big Bang, Small Buck

Consumer Electronics Net
18 February 2009
  • Excerpt: AVCHD has exploded on the consumer and pro-sumer scene like a new star at the Oscars, and the CX100 is the newest "actor" in the AVCHD lineup from Sony. Packed into a small body measuring 2" W x 2.25" H x 4" L (including factory battery) and 2" W x 2.25"H x 5" L with the more practical NP90 battery, this small "brick" weighs in between 11 and 14 ounces, depending on the battery chosen. Short description; this camcorder is a mini-brick.
