Good overall camera, with 2 problems I can't live with.
13 April 2013
Summary: To begin with, I've owned many Sony camcorders over the years (Hi8, MiniDV, AVCHD) including a HDR-CX300 that recently broke (a lens element has come loose and only records a fuzzy blob of light). I have had almost nothing bad to say about any of them, except for this one. This camera has a picture issue where if you are recording a bright object close to a darker object, the border between these objects is smeared with a blue tinge.
