Summary: I got this to replace an older Sony Handycam which could only record 720x480 Standard Definition. I have found the Handycam line to have good quality and durability for the price, so I was definitely looking for another Handycam to replace it. It has a good feature set which you can read in the description above, but here are my additional notes. This does not include an AC adapter!
Summary: A little disappointed by this model. Pros: Picture quality is very good in the next to best recording mode, 60p. Low light is OK Projector comes in handy for quick review of takes. Very light, easy to carry on long trips. Wide angle lens. Screw-in lens mount for accessories, filter, lens hood, etc. Built-in USB cable. WI-FI connectivity. Excellent movie editing and BluRay burner software, available for downloading. Cons: Worst manual I have seen from Sony, disappointing.
... received all the items in the bundle and I love the camcorder

Summary: I received all the items in the bundle and I love the camcorder. But the additional Wasabi NP-FV100 Battery did not work. I charged the wasabi battery, put it on, the camcorder will never come up. It works fine with the actual camcorder battery. The tripod is not a quality one.
