"Good camera for HD daily shooting"

zoleg, CNET
10 November 2009
  • Pros: good battery life. intuitive interface. compact size, good firm handle for your hand. good sets of accessories and filters.
  • Cons: Color correction required almost always if you filming inside or with poor light. Colors really messed up if you film in the dark with artificial light. Color correction and white balance settings are not remembered even after set. Poor photos.

No Firewire?

DKOS, Amazon
1 July 2009
  • Summary: I like the camera a lot - easy to use; facial recognition is a great feature; good zoom; picture quality is high. However, I have no idea why there is NO FIREWIRE CAPABILITY! This has to be one of the worst business decisions since Coke went to New Coke. Downloading video to edit takes forever let alone it being useless for live streaming.

IT'S OK.

  • Summary: I RECOMMEND THAT YOU SAVE UP AND BUY SOMETHING BETTER. ESPECIALLY IF YOU WANT A GOOD PICTURE IN LOW LIGHT.
  • Pros: HIGH DEFINITION RECORDING (IF YOU HAVE SOFTWARE THAT SUPPORTS MT2S FILES)
  • Cons: IT SAVES VIDEO CLIPS AS "MT2S" FILES. SOME EDITING SOFTWARES DO NOT SUPPORT MT2S FILES

A. Sherif, Amazon
19 April 2009
  • Summary: I bought this product recently and I find all what is written under Amazon review 100% correct. Briefly it is good camera give you VERY GOOD movies & STILL PICTURES and easy to transfer the recorded materials to you computer - but it seems for me it had very poor stabilizer (if your hand not stable enough it will provide very poor movies - didn't come with shoulder strip !

Nice Camera, but I want more

J. Kwak, Amazon
15 April 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera from Circuit City on the day I was to fly out on a 2 week vacation. I have a Sony HI8, but I wanted a better quality camera to archive my children's activities. Overall, the camcorder is light, highly functional, and meets my expectations. However, I will probably return the camera. I'll go through my pros and cons: Pros: Lightweight 5.1 sound is great still pictures are nice, but don't use the zoom.

Decent camera for novice users

K. Tran, Amazon
4 April 2008
  • Summary: If you are new to the camcorder business, this will be the camera for you. It's easy to use and you won't have to buy media ever again. People complain about the quality but I filmed this outside during the daytime and the picture quality was great. Unless you watch your 40 inch HDTV at a 4 feet distance, I did not see much grain. It beats the standard cameras. By the way, I got this camera for less than 700 after tax and shipping. I think it's worth every penny.

Good - but only if ....

G. Roberts "Grahame", Amazon
3 March 2009
  • Summary: I have this device and it's great - up to a point. If you merely want to take high quality footage, watch it on an HD television and then delete it, then it's wonderful and you won't be disappointed. However if, like me, you want to preserve the footage on DVD and edit to remove unintended errors, people walking in front of the camera and excess footage, etc, then you'll find that the ACVHD format will make it very very difficult.

Marketing rubbish tarnishes what is a fairly good product

P. A. Gamble, Amazon
24 October 2008
  • Summary: I just wanted to people to understand that Sony are once again being very naughty with their marketing here ... much like a lot of vendors did with the number of megapixels in early still cameras (saying that a camera had 8mp when infact in only had 3mp and the rest were interpolated). Sony say this is Full HD. IT IS NOT FULL HD. Full HD is 1920x1080 progressive.

User Review

antonio-zab, Yandex
31 March 2009
  • Excerpt: Пока не понял как решить вопрос с шумом и зерном. Правда на природе снимать еще не пробовал.. Обработку отснятого легко делаю на том же Pinnacle Studio..
  • Pros: Компактная, не надо никаких кассет, удобное управление, а именно - кнопки вкл/выкл записи и приближения вынесены на откидывающийся экран.
  • Cons: Плохо ловит резкость при тусклом освещении. Не знаю брак это или нет, но у меня даже при Полном разрешении (1080) идут сильные шумы и зерно(при съемке в помещении при искусственном освещении) так, что качество получается даже хуже, чем на MiniDV...

Na ja

Thomas, Amazon
29 December 2008
  • Summary: Ich habe mir den Camcorder als Geschenk für mich selbst zu Weihnachten bestellt.Da Sony in Bereich Blueray/HD wohl momentan der Markführer ist,war ich voller Vorfreude.Als ich dann an Heiligabend meine Kinder filmte (Wohnzimmer,dezent beleuchtet ) und mir die Aufnahmen später anschaute,war ich schon sehr enttäuscht. Die Videos waren sehr grobkörnig und schlierenbelastet. Für einen Camcorder in der Preisklasse habe ich wirklich mehr erwartet.
