Lousy Product

Melukote Srinivasan "Mel", Amazon
11 November 2009
  • Summary: I cannot believe Sony will make a $575/ product with no built in flash and with no place for flash attachment. Also, there is no view finder-in an effort to save battery life by not using LCD monitor. Within 24 hours of buying, I had to return the product.

Very poor low light

Judith L. Miranda "club photographer", Amazon
6 July 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this model directly from Sony Style store after being assured that it would meet my needs. i.e, recording inside a dance studio. The first time I used it I did not change any settings & the quality was the worst I had ever seen.

Very noisy image in low light conditions and jittery image

HD Evaluator, Amazon
20 March 2009
  • Summary: When I purchased an HD camcorder I expected an HD quality picture. Not the case with this camcorder - in normal evening indoor lighting the video is extremely noisy, it was so bad that I burned a disc and took it to the Sony Style store to compare -- I must have received a defective unit?
