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.
Summary: I collected this camera just before going on holiday and have viewed the video today on a 55 inch HD TV. Very impressed with the quality of picture. I am not a well practiced user, but this camera was very intuitive and has delivered good results. I just need to read the manual to get more from it's array of features.
