Summary: This camcorder is amazing for it's size and the picture quality is great. It has a wide variety of options you may want. One option my kids really like is the "highlights" feature which takes clips of movies you've taken and set it to music.
Summary: Most noticeable the camera has no mechanical buttons around the display. Other than a half dozen buttons for 'record', 'zoom', etc, all input is with soft buttons on the LCD panel. Easy to use, odd getting distortion when pressing the display.
Summary: I bought this camera last night and am so impressed with it I wanted to post an initial review ASAP since the camera is so new and there are so few reviews out there for it. To begin, I am new into the HD video, but am a techie and have done a lot of research.
Summary: This is my third HD AVCHD Flash memory camcorder I have owned in the last two years and am very pleased with it. While this unit's video is not quite as crisp and vivid in color/clarity as the Canon and Panasonic units (95% as good), it more than makes up for it in image stabilization and low light...
Summary: This camera has better low light performance compared to any of the Canon's (HFS10 etc), and it has amazing image stabilization. We've used it for a month now, and are happy with it. Perfect choice for a family 1080P camcorder.
Summary: This camera is just GREAT! Even for low light situations (when the image quality decreases noticeably). PROS: - Superb image quality a wide range of light situations - Takes awesome photos at 12M (I mean, it's not about the megapixels, but the QUALITY of the pictures) - Face index is great - Full of...
Summary: Expensive? Yes but worth it. I've been working with flash based camcorders (Sanyo's) since 2006 and this Sony is a work of art. The low light capabilities are excellent as well as normal day shots. The menus are easy to navigate once you get the hang of it.
Summary: I bought this few weeks ago and took it to Lake Tahoe, CA last week, The video and the picture taken were awesome and very clear even in low light snowing conditions. I have been waiting for this Camera/Camcoder combo that can take good quality pictures (12MP) as well.
