Summary: This camera is a top notch performer in a tiny package. The picture quality is superb under all conditions. The camera fits neatly in the hand and all the controls fall neatly where you would want them. The image stabilisation is particularly impressive - on maximum zoom it is still possible to get a steady and clear picture - in fact if you try and pan the camera tried to resist as it assumes you are wobbling! Yes, there are criticisms.
Summary: Fantastic camera. I know nothing about these types of things, but this is easy to use and works great. Bit irritating that the memory card doesn't come included, but not the end of the world. Love the camera and the editing on my computer works great. Very happy!
Summary: This is a great little Handycam, it fits snugly in my large 'plates of meat' hand. It's fairly straightforward to use and it gives good quality HD videos. The 50x extended zoom is great, it lets me zoom into far of items and see them quite clearly (although using a tripod would be better if using full zoom, for stability).
Summary: Light, compact and easy to use. Pictures very sharp. Bought for holiday in Norway to film biathletes in action and it worked very well including low light and stormy weather situations. If you want quality sound then this is not for you as the on-board mic is not very good. If you want good quality pictures then it is a great buy. Shame it didn't come with its own case. To date, very happy with purchase and would recommend it.
Summary: First handycam I have bought. Not used it that much yet. Bought for my coming holiday abroad. Both small and light. Has great anti shake built in which worked when I filmed in the cold and was shivering. Also bought a spare memory card and battery.
Summary: This camcorder is exactly what I've been looking for.I read many of the reviews about it before I made a purchase, and most people were more than pleased with its picture clarity.However little was said about the sound clarity.Let me assure anyone wishing to record themselves singing and playing an instrument,Its ideal.Even though it doesn't have an input for a mic.
The sony CX280, A good choice for wildlife camcorders
28 April 2014
Summary: I wanted to replace our old tape Cam but wanted the same quality I am used to without pixels and blurs. This sony CX280 is even better than I hoped. I thought HD was the answer but find I get the quality I want on ST so don't have huge file size and can make straight forward DVDs using the software I have always used (cyberlink). I am using a class 4 8G card. (I looked at the Sony ST only and the video was not of good quality when zooming etc.
Summary: This camera was the best, it was cheaper than Argos, £239, in amazon it cost £179.96! YOU CAN SAVE £59!, it was on time and is ready to be used. I recommend this product! Good and money save product!
