Summary: I owned this for a day and returned it. Compared to my Sony HD-SR11 camcorder, the video quality is very poor. I am not referring to it being high definition, I am referring to its reproduction of what you see in real life situation.
Summary: First problem is the inability to see the screen when recording in sunlight - which is pretty much the conditions I bought it for. Use is easy other than that. However, the lens cover is already stuck open after the first week's use. >:-(
Good overall camera, with 2 problems I can't live with.

Summary: To begin with, I've owned many Sony camcorders over the years (Hi8, MiniDV, AVCHD) including a HDR-CX300 that recently broke (a lens element has come loose and only records a fuzzy blob of light). I have had almost nothing bad to say about any of them, except for this one.
Summary: The battery was not the same as the one supplied with product, the tripod it very flimsy and to be honest I wasn't impressed with being contacted three times by email and once by one to complete a review. I tried to give feedback on the phone but the person wasn't interested.
