Great camera and great video

Keith Bolen, Amazon
6 January 2015
  • Summary: Great camera and great video. Only complaint is that the 1080P recording is in a Sony specific format and their software does not work well with Windows 8. Using an older computer, it takes almost 4 hours to burn a 30 minute video into DVD because it has to be first "downgraded" from 1080P to 720P.

The little camera that could!

31 October 2013
  • Summary: A video clip is worth a thousand words? http://youtu.be/Q-dRMwxI_jA (And now a detailed and verbose review!) So, one day, out of the blue my little sister called me for help because she had won a grant to conduct a field study on the differences between oral and written histories of the indigenous...

Good little camcorder

John, Amazon
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Bought this unit as a replacement for an older Sony "lost" in Germany. It is an excellent camcorder, we've shot a lot of video with it over the last few months. Pros: Excellent quality video, the anti-shake works well without being over-powering.

has a microphone jack!

C. Allen, Amazon
4 August 2013
  • Summary: For those of you seeking a low cost high quality camera that you can put a mic jack in, this works great. I bought a cheaper one and didn't realize it didn't have a jack. I give lectures and need to wear a lapel mic and so I wire that to this camera through an XLR cord and adapter for 1/8" jack and...

Great for Disney! Love the smile capture feature

Jeff, Amazon
12 July 2013
  • Summary: Small size, fits into a cargo pocket easily. Well made, handled a drop well. Great video, if you put it one setting lower than max (60i) it can take smile pictures while recording, a neat feature that caputured a lot of moments with the kids and the characters,and just smile moments in general.

Good, modestly-priced choice for bird videos

CarlW, Amazon
5 July 2013
  • Summary: As a birdwatcher, I bought this pretty much exclusively to shoot video of birds, so I'll rate it from that point of view. Likes: The 30x optical zoom was the main attraction, and it works well: you can get surprisingly "close" to those little birds that won't let you get within 40 feet.

Awesome camera for the price

Mjs, Amazon
2 July 2013
  • Summary: This camera does everything except takes clear pics and video in low light settings such as indoors with low lighting. Otherwise check out the review about the camera on youtube. The zoom is ridiculous and more than you need. Still happy. Gets 4 stars because of the low light quality.

Nice Quality, hard to edit

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 June 2013
  • Summary: The camcorder takes really nice video and is easy to use. My only complaint is that it records video in a .MTS format, which is difficult to work with. I have not been able to figure out proper Handbrake settings to convert the files to MP4 format yet.

Great Video for a lightweight camera

MarkinLakeview, Amazon
6 June 2013
  • Summary: The PROS: Very Good HD quality video for such a light-weight camera. On screen menu is fairly simple to use, zoom controls on screen work smoothly and picture is still fairly sharp when zooming in for tight shots. Camera takes both good video and good stills in minimal lighting.

Great product for the price

mrbates1313, Ebay
4 February 2013
  • Summary: So far so good. I have used it a few times and it is very easy to use. Love the instant on as soon as you open the display and off when you close it. Easy to transfer to my computer. Just hope that the touch screen lasts as this was the failure point of my old one.
