Summary: I bought it as a replacement for my trusty Handy-cam 8.It is very compact and lightweight and slips easily into a coat pocket. The touch screen menu is very easy to use and you can save your favourite settings to a separate folder.The zoom facility is very slick and the video and still pictures are pin sharp.I think that for the money this is an excellent buy. Well worth buying a spare battery.
Summary: Very compact and lightweight. Video quality is what you'd expect from Sony. I particularly like the slow record mode which records for a few seconds prior to pressing the rec button. So get someone to click record after your golf swing and its all captured. Build qualityis great...
Pros: Excellent slo mo mode for recording golf swing etc
Summary: Lovely little camera. Smaller than I had anticipated but it works well. I have not yet used it in conjunction with a tv or computer, so here's hoping it lives up to its reputation. Battery life good.
Summary: After carefully studying all the reviews, I purchased this one for my Husband for a Christmas present 2011. He has only recently used it for any length of time while on a trip to Dubrovnik, hence not reviewing it before this date. He got on with it quite well for a first time, and we are very pleased with the results. Obviously it takes time to really get used to this item when you haven't had one before.
Summary: I bought this to replace a Panasonic which I had dropped. It is a stunning, high quality camcorder, don't let the price fool you into thinking it's a cheapo. The clarity is superb, the controls feel positive and although there is nothing fancy about it, it shoots great video. I've had camcorders since 1989 and this one is the best I've owned.
