Not useful or practical

Dave, Amazon
2 April 2014
  • Summary: I loved the idea of an inexpensive video camera to record presentations and do small home videos. The instructions on the set-up are not clear. The interface is difficult to maneuver. There isn't a definite on/off button which can cause you to accidentally rundown the battery quickly.

Very Fragile

Sherry Legacie, Amazon
20 February 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this to video my kids sporting events. Its very fragile, and the footage blurs out for no reason. once I put it on a computer, the footage is dull. I have another camera that's a HDR-CX110, the footage is crisp and clear. So I don't even use this camera any more.

It's fine, but -

Eric The Dabbler, Amazon
30 September 2013
  • Summary: The dang thing overexposes outside on a sunny day something fierce unless I set it to manual exposure. Using it that way is hardly any use if the lighting keeps changing from shadowy areas back to lighted areas. It does capture a very sharp image, though.

Disappointed

Doctor Memory "Aged computer geek", Amazon
5 June 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace an old DCR-DVD403 that worked well, but could only record a half-hour before I needed to switch discs. I bought this camera and a 32G card. I charged it up overnight, then took it to my daughter's piano recital.

A little dissapointing

paslug, Amazon
23 May 2013
  • Summary: I planned on using the camera primarily indoors at a roller skating rink. The still pictures under normal florescent lighting are so noisy as to be almost unusable. A lot of the other reviews mentioned the poor low light performance, but I didn't believe it could be so bad.

Misleading Marketing by Sony

FM, Amazon
31 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought this camera as a birthday gift and ordered the supposedly required VMC-UAM2 cable direct from Sony. I was surprised to see upon the opening of the packaging that the "required" $20 cable was merely a micro usb cable, commonly used to charge/sync smartphones of which i already have plenty.

Poor standard for sony camcorder

maureen hobson, Amazon
17 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought this camera to take to Norway with me this week. The instruction manual is hopeless, too small print and confusing. Operating buttons very small and I spent £35 on memory card but cannot use the camera as the MENU button which is very small keeps on showing pictures of the things the camera...
