Summary: Bought this product 2 years ago. Very easy to use, good HD, audio, focusing and I find it great that it grabs stills from videos which is super-handy for me as an artist. Value for money for non-professionals.
Summary: This is the first camcorder that I have ever owed and it is great as it is so easy to use. The zoom is fantastic and so good that I have stopped using my binoculars when going on holiday. Before when going on holiday pictures of my partner in the sea used to be a little dot but now I can zoom all the way in to take a photo of him. Original I bought this just for the video but that this camcorder photos are so good I use this to take photos of the scenary or wildlife.
Summary: Very good workmanship and manufacturing quality, typical of Sony. Very Practical but I miss a through lens aperture viewfinding - only responds to the 'screen door' being opened to operate with all the associated problems of light and sun effect. Image quality is very good.
Summary: I had been researching camcorders for a while now as I hoped to capture those moments when a grandson is growing up. This handycam really does the job. It has everything you need for excellent results even if your skill level is zero! I would have given it 5 stars, but the instructions are somewhat limited - and not that user friendly. An idiots guide would be more appropriate for this type of product.
Summary: The camera arrived as expected except there is a European plug on it. There is no mention about this in the product details. I am about to write back to the seller. Clearly it is possible to swap over the plug or get a converter but it should not be necessary or at least purchasers should be warned.
