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.
Summary: I really wanted to like this camcorder tried it out for a couple weeks. The video for me was just ok and the pictures were just ok. I havnt been in the market for a camcorder for many years I just usually end up doing pictures. But I new it was time to get some video of the grand kids.
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.

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.
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.
Summary: This video camera is okay for making home videos, I gave it a 3 out of 5 because if there is no background noise, you can hear the camera clicking and recording. The camera quality is good but it's the sound that really lets it down, for £250 I would have expected better sound quality.
Summary: I am a wildlife guide & photographer & have used many DSLR's in the last 10 years, but I was new to the world of camcorders. I just wanted something easy to point & shoot, to grab interesting/rare moments/species when out guiding others as I rarely have time to capture these moments properly with an...
Summary: the cam corder is fine for general use and is relatively easy to use. quality is fine. other reviews criticise the quality however this may be due to not having a good enough memory card. i didn't realise that they varied other than the size of the memory.
