Big enough CON to reconsider...

R. Crowley, Amazon
16 November 2013
  • Summary: I am half please with this camcord. The high resolution recording is very good quality. Its very simple to use even for a beginner like myself. The transferring and viewing of photos and videos on PC and TV is easy to figure out.

No Pause Button

Cameron Darby, Amazon
4 August 2013
  • Summary: I am surprised nobody has mentioned this in any other reviews. When recording, there is no pause button. I originally bought this when house hunting in Montana. I would go from room to room to record everything and found that if I wanted to stop and discuss something with the Realtor but NOT on...

Not for indoors

  • Summary: Got this to film my kids orchestra performances, was disappointed to find my iphone 4s makes better videos indoors. Outdoor videos look great, but low light/ artificial lighting is grainy and sort of distorted if zoomed in.

Does NOT work with IR Illuminators

JeffreyC, Amazon
17 July 2012
  • Summary: This not the camcorder to purchase for ghost-hunting. Though it's a fine camcorder for all other purposes, it simply doesn't work with IR illuminators. Contrary to ads/reviews you might have read at paranormal investigating sites, the camera simply is not designed for this application.

WARNING -- Sony manufacturer's description is inaccurate

A Reader, Amazon
6 July 2012
  • Summary: The manufacturer's description from Sony says that "The Sony HDR-CX190 offers 1920 x 1080p high definition resolution letting you record your memories in exceptional Full High Definition quality." This is just plain false. The CX-190 offers 1080i, not 1080p.

Great camera, buggy software

Austinite, Amazon
1 March 2012
  • Summary: The video I shot came out fantastic. It was kid soccer game, indoor, low light, and through a plexiglass-type border. Video looks great. Lighting is fantastic. I'm very unhappy about the software though.

Disappointing start

Iain, Amazon
24 January 2013
  • Summary: I'm disappointed on unpacking the camera to find that you cannot use it as supplied. It needs a memory card, which I would have expected to be supplied. I know that there are different cards but a fairly basic card with half an hour or so of memory would at least allow use of the product.
