Excerpt: Solid-state AVCHD cameras tend to be small but the CX115 is absolutely tiny. It’s still comfortable to hold and use, though, with a familiar layout of buttons and touchscreen controls. The black finish looks smart, but it’s also available in blue or red. It’s surprisingly well specified considering that this is Sony’s cheapest AVCHD camera. The 1/4in sensor diagonal is typical for the price but the 25x zoom range is impressive.
