Great for HS students

CHS Pirate TV, B&H Photo
18 September 2014
  • Excerpt: We bought three of these for use in our High School editing classes. The picture quality is the best we've seen from a camera in this price range (got them on-sale for less than $ each). The stabilization is also cool, especially for hard-headed students who don't want to carry a tripod out on their shoots. Chose this model because it allows for external mic. I liked the fact it has an accessory shoe, BUT since it's recessed, we haven't been able to make use of it.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, External mic input, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Accessroy Shoe Recessed

Great camcorder

  • Excerpt: Great for outdoor shooting, excellent stabilization due to Sony's BOSS system. Wish the indoor shooting and low light shooting was a little better but for the price range it's an excellent camera.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Average in low light, Average sound

Great camera with one major flaw

Roger Thornhill "mediahound", Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: It's a great camera, but I am still unable to upload video from the camera to my Mac. I had to buy a card reader to do it. The user's guide was no help because it didn't explain exactly how to upload video. When it comes to computers and other technology, I need to learn every little step to do what I want, and the user's guide fell far short of being helpful. As for delivery and the condition of the camera, which was used, they were first class.

Good value!

GSK, Amazon

  • Summary: Performance of camcorder is excellent. In the bundle, most usable things are memory card, extra battery, battery charger, car charger and card reader. Bag is very small. Tripod stand is just a toy. Was expecting a bigger stand. Lens are useless if you are not professional and you can't carry them around as the bag is very small. One of the lens has a spot inside, which I did not like.
