enough quality for it's price

irakli2288, Ebay
29 October 2013
  • Summary: I like SONY, but in pictures and videos, depending on products what I had (digital elph 12.1mp / HDR-CX190) and what I have heard from others, I would say that quality is average, pictures and videos are little bit not realistic, it's like there is more red color. In this model lens are too close to the edge of corpus and sun is reflecting on lens in sunny day, it's comfortable to handle, fits hand good, good and modern menu, enough zoom, it has not power on/off button,...

Not for indoors

mrfixit2011, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • 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. Wish I would have done a little more research and spent a little more money to get a better camera.

Sony is to Proprietary!

I 'am Post It "Buyer", Amazon
13 April 2013
  • 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. The camcorder is small and sleek and very light. I liked all the features it had to offer but the biggest draw back for me was the way you had to interface for video and picture retrieval.

Does NOT work with IR Illuminators

JeffreyC, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • 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. I'm conflicted whether to return, because it does not fulfill one of needs/expectations I had of/for it. I feel a bit foolish having purchased it in the first place.

WARNING -- Sony manufacturer's description is inaccurate

A Reader, Amazon
29 October 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. It is a nice enough video camera for the price, but this inflation of spec is indefensible. Don't buy this camera if you are looking for non-interlaced video -- it just doesn't support that.

Sony Handy cam

john, Amazon
19 May 2013
  • 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.

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. I think Sony are cost cutting too much, I would be happy to pay a little more so I could try it out straight away.

it's okay i guess

Corinne, Amazon
28 September 2012
  • 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.
