Excerpt: Good news for all camera maniacs. Shoot the way you want, the way you feel and get an unimaginable picture quality. Even for a regular hobby use, this camcorder can bring a lot of enthusiasm to its owner. The one I�m talking about is nothing other than the Sony Handycam HDR-CX305 Digital Camcorder.
Summary: I've had this Handycam for 8 months now and have used it in various situations, including outdoors, indoors including in low light, whenriding a bike, at school plays and on rollercoaster rides etc etc. It is light, compact, easy to hold and operate (although I have long fingers and struggle slightly with the zoom control) and produces truly stunning video footage.
Summary: This camera will produce great quality footage especially when played back on a TV via a HDMI cable. A very compact unit when compared to my old Hi8 and mini DV camcorders. Had to buy a new i3 core laptop to handle HD video editing using PowereDirector Ultra v8. The CPU does not need to be as high spec as this though. Image stabilisation is brilliant. Have found that the higher setting can smooth things out too much e.g.
Summary: This camcorder from Sony is an astonishing bit of technology that delivers superb, high quality, high-definition video. The colours are natural looking and not over saturated. To appreciate how good it really is, you need to see the results on a HD television but you will be equally impressed if viewing on a good quality, ordinary TV.
Summary: This is a really lovely camcorder. Very easy to use, excellent picture quality and seems (at first) to be very well made. Unfortunately, after shooting less than an hour of video and a few still shots, the LCD screen on mine failed completely. The camera is currently back with Sony for repair. I'm not sure when I will get it back, although since I've owned it for only a few weeks, I really think they should give me a new unit.
Summary: This is simply a stunning camcorder from sony. For the size the output quality is stunning. Like another reviewer mentioned its great for the price. I also chose this over the 350 model which is much more expensive and only has extra memory and sat nav. 16gb internal memory is fine plus the use of sd cards is a huge bonus. I have two 16gb SD cards I also use with this.
Summary: I'm going to keep it short and sweet. This is the same Camcorder as this one Sony HDRCX350VET High Definition Handycam Camcorder - Black so will have the same image quality. The ONLY difference is the colour of the Camcorder, the internal memory size (16GB of internal Flash memory, the other has 32GB.) Also GPS, (which this model does not have) It's more of a gimmick really and eats into the battery when switched on. 1.
Summary: Als ervaren amateurfilmer gebruik ik deze camera vanaf 2010 en ben enthousiast over de prestaties. De bediening is uiterst eenvoudig: scherm openklappen en filmen. Verder gaat alles automatisch. De groothoeklens zorgt voor een breed beeld. Vooral de resultaten bij zwak licht zijn opvallend goed. Nog beter kan ook met de low-lux instelling. In de FX mode kan men op een 32GB sd-kaart acht uur filmen in een uitstekende kwaliteit.
Summary: Der Camcorder ist leicht zu bedienen und macht echt scharfe Videos. Wer Filme einfach und in guter Qualität drehen möchte, den kann ich dieses Produkt empfehlen. Abstriche gibt es für mich nur beim Ton. Der Klang selbst ist richtig gut aber leider hört man das Eigengeräusch des Camcorders zu sehr. Dies fällt besonders bei ruhigen Videoszenen auf.
