Great Camcorder

  • Summary: This was a used item and it came looking like new. Takes very good quality vids. Controls are not that intutive but if you read the manual you will have no issues. I needed to purchase a larger memory card and additional batteries. Compact and has good noise reduction technology.

Pretty good consumer camcorder

  • Summary: I have had mine for a little over a year. I do not like recording to the internal memory, I would rather use a memory card. The interface seems like a hassle to me. The camera does poorly in low light and when i say poorly i mean very poorly. my room is well lit but I guess this camera has some kind of "indoors filter" in it that produces poor results when recording indoors. When recording outdoors, this camcorder shines. I love it even with it's downsides.

Well worth $150 or less. Great pocket camera for 1080p videos.

  • Summary: I prefer the XR160 more & better, but the CX160 is a nice second (allowing SD Card use & storage, and transfers to your computer... vs the addition of the hard drive the XR160 has). Works well in low light, good IS ability, and reasonable stereo recording. Wouldn't waste money on this as a still camera. IT IS A VIDEO CAM!

Good camcorder for the money

  • Summary: I have used this camera in several virutal home tours that I recorded with this camera. Every home sold too. Good and sharp. 1920 x 1080p at 50fps gives good quality video. The stills are not very good, but the video is really sharp. Makes a very good wedding video camera, virtual tour camera, vacation camera, and I have even used it to record professional singing tallent with it. The zoom quality is above that of many on the market.

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder about ayear ago and it does everything I expected and more. I was actually surprised at the quality of the photos and use it as much to take pictures as I do to record footage.Great buy for the price.

Good camera for the price

  • Summary: Good camera for the price. I shoot indoors all the time and always add extra lighting. The quality is very good. I am use to using a camera with a large built in hardrive so I bought extra SD cards before I plan shooting all day. The 'G' lens it uses is already a wide angle lense so you don't need to buy an extra wide angle lense for this camera or you may get some vignetting. Overall good camera for the price.

3 part review. Cust Service, Quality and a great HINT!

  • Summary: I tried to max my available $$$ by purchasing this camcorder from Amazons Warehouse Deals. It was rated 'like new' and was about $318.00. It was still covered by Sony, and Amazon had a 30 day return policy. When the product arrived, the box was a bit gnarly....but I didn't plan on keeping it in a box. The camcorder was perfect, had all the cords, but was missing the ops manual and Sony CD-ROM. Amazon promptly sent me a RMA, valid for 29 days...no questions asked.
