Awesome camera - HORRIBLE DOCUMENTATION

HikingBuddy, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I use this camera filming outdoor adventures. With the extremely large sensor, it takes awesome sharp and clear footage. All the buttons are easy to get to which makes filming easy. For its size it is a little heavy but a little sacrifice is okay for the quality. The biggest drawback is the lack of documentation. The manual, if that's what you want to call it, is more like a quick start guide.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance

Gotta Get Used to It

Carol Dorman, Amazon
31 October 2014
  • Summary: I'm a professional event videographer so I use this camera fairly often for extra angles. Very slow auto-focus, as others have observed. It's actually faster to manually focus most of the time. However, I was annoyed by the image quality in mp4 mode. I see obvious artifacts and pixelation during playback and editing from this file type. The AVCHD file type can be imported directly into FCPX without any trouble so I think I'm going to be happy with this camera after all.

Very Narrow Light/Mic Shoe

Photo latte, B&H Photo
13 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I just got my camera home,One of the reasons I buy this camera was the standard hot shoe that you could mount external Mics. or LED Vide Lights. However, Non of the existing Mics or Lights I have, Fits in that shoe.I mean the shoe is still standard; however the room is very small and you are NOT able to fit in any accessories (probably Other than Sony products).2nd is the manual ring: I will use the manual ring to switch from focus to non-focus effect.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Ext Mic Shoe Ar Is Small, Ext Mic Shoe Room Is Smal

Amazing Camera!

Angel from E-Motions, B&H Photo
6 August 2014
  • Excerpt: This camera is simply amazing. We do wedding videos and use a combination of DSLRs and Sony NX5s. I wanted a camera that I could grab real quick and do some simple shots here and there but the manual settings and image of this camera are so amazing that I'm now using it for more formal shots. Love that I can adjust Gain, Iris, shutter speed and also come with ND filters! The low light capabilities are amazing too. Sometimes I think that even better than the NX5s!

Slightly Disappointed

Halcyong, B&H Photo
26 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I have had the CX 900 for a few days, and here are some of the things I noticed so far: 1) Video is clear but colors are slightly saturated or not well reproduced.2) No users manual. There is an Operating Guide and online Help Guide but both are very simplistic.3) View finder is not vey bright and in sun light can be hard to use.
  • Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
