Summary: Item arrived on time and was as described (new). I really haven't had much time with the camera yet, though I have tried features such as the projector and the optical steady shot. I personally liked the projector feature, even though the detail isn't quite as good as plugging into the TV with the included HDMI cable. Then the quality of the picture is shown in it's full glory. The built in light is a very handy feature as well.
Excerpt: Es la segunda videocamara que compro con estas caracteristicas, me encanta su estabilidad y muy buena calidad de imagen. solo me gustaria que la pantalla lcd fuese un poco mas grande. ya que mis manos son grandes y me cuesta un poco utilzarla para cambiar las funciones..
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality
Excerpt: I tried this camera hoping to keep it as a back up for my Panasonic Lumix G3 and as a small camera I could attack on my motorcyle handlebar. I dropped the idea. This is why: Although well-built and having nice features like the multi-function manual setting wheel in the front and easy access plugs (not under the LCD screen), the camera fails mainly because of poor picture quality: even the supposed "Maximum picture quality" still requires to use 60 fps progressive (60...
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Zoom range/performance
Cons: Complicated To Operate, Poor Image Quality, Poor In Low Light

Summary: So good I bought a 2nd one as Sony discontinued this as it was cannabalizing sales of their higher end camcorders. This is an AMAZING camera and I wish they kept it in production. Best Sony consumer/prosumer I have ever used. I have used over a dozen Sony camcorders over the years ranging from $1000 to $5000 and this the best of the lot.
Summary: I LOVE THIS CAMERA. It was bought to replace an older Sony that started giving me problems. I am a choir director and need a good camera for recording my concerts. This one has a BUILT-IN Wide-angle lens that I can use to help with recording the entire stage. It has beautiful color and great sound. Was especially impressed with the stable shot feature. I purchased an extra battery that gives me more than 10 hours on a single charge.
great optical stabilization and good image quality

Summary: unbeatable steady cam performance with its optical image stabilization - makes all the difference for the casual shooting I do - makes an amateur look like a pro a couple of odd and wish it was different features but overall very pleased with this purchase
Excerpt: This camera performed very well, it had all the features and image control that I was looking for, and produced excellent quality video. Unfortunately, after using it for a couple of weeks, I found its form-factor was a bit too small for my large hands. I occasionally found my little finger creeping into the field of view and using its zoom control lever and image control dial was somewhat difficult to use--again, due to my large hands.
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
