Summary: I'ts the best camera I've ever owned, the HD quality is superb, it's larger filesizes on the computer but that's not issue. The zoom is superb, it hasn't missed a beat and I've used it quite alot. I bought more battries for it (3rd party ones, not offical Sony ones) as they were much cheaper, and they work perfectly.
Summary: This is my number one best camcorder I ever had. Very high quality at cheapest price. Small size, easy to hold, built-in USB that I will not need to bring my USB to anywhere. Very light. But this camcorder is not enabling for live streaming. Recommend to everyone to get this if they're looking for the low budget.
Summary: As my DSLR isn't very handy when it comes to casual video shooting where you don't want to worry about focus and exposure (and even camera shake), I bought this and was hoping for something that would be able to get detailed 1080p50 video in a small package. When I first got the camera i was kinda disappointed with the weight and feel of it. From the model pictures I thought it would be some kind of brushed metal, but this is glossy plastic.
Summary: I have only used it the once, but it all seems to work OK and the results are good. I had a mini tape Sony camera before and the transition to this has not presented any difficulties. Didn't want one that does everything bar make a cup of tea for you - just take good movies - and this fits the bill.
Summary: I was amazed at how light this is. It feels almost like a toy, but the performance is excellent. Easy to use. Recordings appear clear even in low light conditions. Zoom is excellent (jerk-free). Good value for money. Had considered Canon, but the zoom is better. Set up and controls simple, although minimalist instructions supplied in the box!
Summary: Having just become a parent me and my wife decided we'd like to catch some memories on video. This camcorder is splendid for point and shoot recording. No hassle or fuss. Just flick open the screen and it's on. Very happy.
Summary: This c/corder has a super quality Zeiss lens. 50X zoom and a reasonable wide angle. The Sony Multi connector is unique to them and not so easy to source a non brand, but it is only capable of transmitting to phono and thus standard definition. It does have an integrated HDMI cable built in to the handle strap for HD. My laptop has no HDMI so transfer has to be via the SD card.
