Summary: Videos won't upload to iMovie. Workarounds available, but time wasting and annoying... If using Mac, my advice is to try another brand... Otherwise, for windows I'm sure this is one fab camera!
Pros: small and cheap and good for gift if you do not know what to present.
Cons: - No Depth of Field with that lenses - Pictures is flat - it is impossible to shoot steady with this camera (if not on tripod) - design is super old and ugly - interface is as simple as it was developed for kindergarten
Summary: I was looking for a HD camcorder that could also produce good-quality still photos as well, and this is not it. Apparently the CCD is only 1.6 megapixels (see the "Effective Pixel Resolution" specs on Sony's web site) and Sony is using a pixel-doubling/averaging technique to create artificial pixels between the real ones.
Summary: I just purchased this camera and I am going to be returning it. Not because its a bad camera, the video quality and overall ease of using it is 5 stars. The reason I am returning this is because it does not have night shot. It does give you a low lux option but the lowest it can get to is lux 11.
Summary: I received my Sony HDR-CX130 today and was shocked to find that IT HAS NO MICROPHONE INPUT of ANY KIND! I alerted Sony and they thanked me for bringing to their attention this error on their technical specifications listed (and promptly linked me to a page that allegedly says it's not their fault if errors are made on their advertising.. that link did not work either, btw bwaha). So, no, NO 3.5 mini jack or ANY mic/audio input whatsoever.
Summary: Ich hatte leider kein "Aha-Erlebnis" bei der Betrachtung der Ergebnisse. Wahrscheinlich lag es daran, dass ich zuerst im Inneren und bei Schmuddelwetter gefilmt habe. Die Weihnachtsaufnahmen im Haus waren nicht viel besser als die meiner alten Sony DCR-TRV15E. Das hohe Bildrauschen machte bei beiden Kameras die Innenbilder bei gedämpften Licht nicht gerade sonderlich attraktiv. Ich hatte mir mehr versprochen von der HD-Technologie und v.a.
