Summary: This Sony Camera does HD excellent. It is easy to use but, not for the novice user. If you have used a Sony Camcorder before you will be fine. It has excellent picture and recording capabilities. A large view screen to see what you are recording and does excellent night time shots and recording. Since the HDR-CX230 does record in HD downloading to anything takes a lot more time and hard drive usage.

Summary: Nice camcorder. I video my weekly workout videos for youtube with this camcorder. Pro's It's lightweight. easy to use nice clear picture cons awkward display to delete things - can't seem to do this from computer :( sound is sometimes crappy, picks up a lot of ambient sound (wind) no external mic In all good for the price, but you get what you pay for.
Summary: I've had this camera for a while now, and it's been great. A bang for the buck, for sure. Great quality, and has held up to a lot of use. A "no-brainer" on the value scale. But I was prompted to write this review this long after my purchase, for a mfg/customer support reason... this just hardly ever happens, so wanted to share.
Summary: Everything is fine, fine has been online. In low light much noise, but it was expected, the size of the matrix is not great, but due to its resolution of noise can easily be put out in the normal video editor. When sufficient light picture is very even for a budget camera.
I hope they can put in touch screen. Also you can't really use its camera
