Sony Handycam

Art Swanson, Amazon

  • Summary: The product is OK, but the lack of a viewfinder is a problem. The LCD screen is virtually invisible in the daytime, so there is no way to tell exactly what is being filmed. You just have to point the camera in the right direction and hope for the best. I purchased a screen hood to see if that would help, but it was pretty much worthless.

Wonderful camcorder, not Mac friendly

  • Summary: Sony HDR-CX160 High Definition Handycam Camcorder (Black) I have been a life-long Sony customer and it is the brand I first turn to when I want to purchase a camera or other consumer electronic. This camcorder replaces a much older Sony camcorder that I've used for years. As I expected, the image quality both on the HD video and the photography are excellent on this camera. The zoom is amazing!

Great Camcorder-for-Price CX-160 16gb

Sodoradve..., Ciao

  • Excerpt: Upon purchasing the CX-160 from Best Buy, I had the pleasure to see Sony's durable new camcorder. It was black, and high gloss. The Sony G lens is a great new lens, and it records in crisp, clear, HD. In comparison to other HD cameras, the quality is nowhere near a Canon G10, for example. It features the built in USB Cable, a nice addition. It comes with informative manuals, and a starter battery that holds about a hour and a half charge.
  • Pros: HD Quality, Price, Size
  • Cons: Touchscreen Ease, Battery Life

  • Excerpt: хотел купить Panasonic HS80 EEK c Встроенный памитью на жестким диском 120гб но у них качества Full HD плохо и зарядка мало от sony
  • Pros: Встроенный 16 гб(можна снимат с форматом FullHd минимально 4 часа) + можна ставить 64 гб маленкий удобный по своем роде,как все видео камеры можно подставить к стойку(штативу)Звук по мне хороши это не профессионалный а для любительски камера... ещё с форматом FullHD можна преблизить обекть из 40 метр
  • Cons: Конечно Фото качество плохо из от того пиксель мало, и зарядка с форматом Full HD задержатся не долга...
