Sony HDRCX105ES

Jamblatt, Amazon
18 February 2010
  • Summary: The handycam is simple to use and takes good footage. Unfortunately processing the HD images opens a whole world of pain!!.Playback on the two computers I have tried, which both match the required specifications as detailed by Sony, is too jumpy to even view, let alone manipulate with the included Sony PMB editing software. A further annoyance is that video cannot be captured by Windows Movie Maker as Sony's codec is not compatible with the system.

Small Smart and a great introduction into High Definition

  • Excerpt: With a holiday to Florida looming I was torn between buying a small but cheaper range non HD camera or to take the plunge and go for an affordable HD range option. With technology always moving forward I went for the HD with the Sony Handycam HDR-CX105E. I was not disappointed. The CX105E came with 8GB of flash memory which was totally inadequate for HD so prepare to add another £30 - £40 to the budget for a 32GB Card.
  • Pros: A great value for money entry to HD filming
  • Cons: Will need a very powerful computer for editing .

SMALL CAMCORDER

titan1234..., Ciao
12 October 2009
  • Excerpt: This time, Sony has launched another unfeasibly small HD camcorder. HDR-factor CX105E have a more conventional form, but still impressive dimensioned.The CX105E greater than the TG3. Although only 40g heavier, the chassis is almost two times as thick. However, the sub-300g weight can hardly be described as fat, and remains one of the smallest 'Full HD' in the market.
  • Pros: Memory card camcorders
  • Cons: looks a bit fat and heavy,manual lens cover

Do not save too much money on this camcorder

A. A. Przybysz, Amazon
10 July 2009
  • Summary: I've purchased this camcorder few weeks ago and I am fairly happy with this one. If Ii'd have to choose again I'd go with something more expensive. At day light the picture is great, even in the evening you can still be happy with the view. But when light is poor, like indoors, late evening (not menshioning night) it looks like the low range video of digital camera. The same with photos. The view is steady even when making video with hand, tripod is helpfull though.

Depends what you need it for

  • Summary: Takes great pictures and video in good lighting conditions. I purchased to record my new baby and so it's being used in doors a lot. Unfortunately it is pretty useless when the lighting isn't so good - I'll have to buy a light for it at an additional £75. Photos are terrible quality when its being used in evenings even with the light on in the living room. Other cameras will work better in such conditions.

  • Excerpt: Quand même un peu moins bon que le modéle auquel il succéde.. Il manque pas mal de réglages manuels.. Ce qui peut être assez embêttant à la longue.. De plus il à quelques difficultés à filmer en intérieur peu éclairer..

Praktikable Camcorder aber auch nicht viel besser als andere...

Olaf1a "Olaf", Amazon
19 December 2009
  • Summary: HAllo, wie meine Vorredner schon sagten, hält die Camera nicht, was sie verspricht, anhand der Linse ist dies auch nicht möglich. Die Chips können noch so gut sein, die MP noch so hoch, dies bringt nix, wenn die Stablilisierung usw und die Linse nichtgut sind. Die Software kann dies alles schlecht verarbeiten Von HD hat man nicht viel, wenn man nur Bildrauschen hat. Bei mittlerem bzw. dunklen Licht kann man so gut wie garnichts erkennen.

Gut bei Tageslicht in Räumen und sobald es dunkler wird nicht geeignet

Bernd Ziegenhagen, Amazon
19 November 2009
  • Summary: Hallo, Hintergrund für den Kauf des Camcorders war der günstige Preis. Es ist jetzt meine dritter Camcorder und ich bin etwas enttäuscht, das Aufnahmen die die nicht bei Tageslicht durchgeführt werden, also normale Beleuchtung im Haus doch stark vergrieselt sind. Aufnahme bei schwacher Beleuchtung geht gar nicht. Mein Fazit nur für den Tageslichteinsatz bzw. guter Beleuchtung geeignet. Dann ist es ein gutes Gerät einfach zu bedienen und funktionier zufriedenstellend.
