Be Warned!

SupaCat, Amazon
28 May 2012
  • Summary: Before purchasing this or any Sony camcorder be warned that their HD file types are very hard to convert or use outside of camera playback mode. This is particularly true if you have an Apple computer. Your videos, as nice as they may be, will only import into iMovie. Importing them to Quicktime will take 30 minutes per two minutes of video. This makes the videos unusable for any purpose. I had similar frustrations on Windows based PC as well.

Be sure the files are compatiable with your computer

  • Summary: This sounds silly but be sure the files that this camcorder creates are compatiable with your computer. I have a 3 year old IBM lap top that will play any movie format know to man except the one this camcorder creates. I spent two hours yesterday trying to play these files. The closest I came was to download a converter recomended by windows that costs $39 and takes as much time to convert the recorded file to a playable file!

  • Excerpt: p.s. по поводу формата видео - не знаю как у вас получается мтс и м2тс... но у меня камера снимает в нормальном формате, который понимает любой плеер...
  • Pros: сборка, адекватно работающий сенсор, комплектность, качество съёмки (уж поверьте, начитавшись отзывов, нарочно поснимал и на солнце и ночью), принудительная фокусировка, чтоб быстрее сфокусироваться, хотя м без неё всё хорошо... на большом телевизоре смотреть - самое то.
  • Cons: 1. на компе может тормозить видео, если у вас комп "несвежий". у меня именно такой. медиаплеер классик - не канает, смотрите через встроенную программу. 2. могут быть проблемы с флэшками типа SDXC, но это решаемо - всего то нужно скачать с сайта Микрософта обновление WindowsXP-KB955704-x86-RUS.exe (3,25Мб) и всё будет работать. 3. фирменный диск так и не запустился (т.е. не прочитался) 4. разъём - не HDMI, а miniHDMI у неё! 5. и не 4,3 мпкс, а 3,3мпкс!
