Good but lens has visible chromatic aberration at high zoom

Amazoner Stallion "Mikey", Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: Very good camcorder. Fast, light and of course using FLASH instead of tape is wonderful. My only complaint is Sony having switched away from Carl Zeiss lenses to their own "Lens G" technology. The lens is not as good and shows noticeable chromatic aberration at high zoom. (It's fine at low or no zoom.) This unit is several years old at this point so maybe they've improved things. Do your homework on this issue before going with Lens G.

Great quality, but delecate equipment

Matt Jackson, Amazon
7 May 2013
  • Summary: I love everything about this camera. The video quality is amazing, even in low light conditions. [...] It's got great slow motion quality, good sound, and I like all of the features. My one concern is the lens cover mechanism is really delicate. On the first day of filming with the camera, the lens cover got jammed open, so now it only closes halfway. I wasn't rough or careless with it, but it is still like that now.

I was dissappointed.

trieu08, Ebay
25 July 2012
  • Summary: I have a lot of hope for this camcorder, but after using it for 2 days, I was dissappointed. Positive: wide angle lens, viewfinder, and 3.5" LCD. Negative: low resolution video and photo. Video only 1080i, my old Canon Vixia HF S200 has better video quality and picture!! Need Sony software to download video and photo.

  • Summary: I got this camcorder on the first day they were available and had some time to use it. Mine use mostly is for kids, vacations, travel, hiking so I needed good quality camcorder that would recorder on the moments notice with out waisting time on setups. The items that sold me on it and did not disappoint: 1. Wide angle - first Sony's camcorder that I would not have to carry this annoying wide angle lens and no loss of quality as well out of microphone range. 2.
