  • Excerpt: Great run and gunner for in field and remote area locations. Great quality, ability to view dailies (on your ceiling in bed or wherever) with the projector, internal memory, still camera, basically a do-it-all backup camera or main depending on the gig.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Complicated To Operate, Limited Zoom

Extremely stable piece of gear

  • Excerpt: I am extremely satisfied with the NX30u. It works great in a low light situation. Carl Zeiss' lense adds extreme quality to the footage shot with this camera. At first, I thought the projector was a sales gimmick. The project is high quality and pretty powerful, I was impressed. I would reccommend this piece to everyone.

Sony surprised me in a good way

  • Excerpt: I've always was against Sony because of it's dedicated memory card. I looked this up, and was also worried about the quality of the projector. I needed a camera to document my newborn son's christening and didnt know what to do. I had my wife pick between a Panasonic and this one, and she made the best choice. The price is great. The mic inputs, along with the mic is great. The projector is great as well.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Projector, Great Sound

Front heavy, bad ergonomics

Dale C., B&H Photo
5 November 2014
  • Excerpt: The camera is front heavy to begin with, and putting the XLR handle and mic on makes it really awkward. And the placement of the headphone jack behind the hand strap is ridiculous. Those bad design features, plus the lack of full manual exposure control, made me return the unit. The image stabilization is cool but doesn't outweigh those flaws for me. If you didn't handhold it, or always used a Glidecam, it might make sense, but that kind of defeats the point.

Great things DO come from small packages

  • Excerpt: I'm a filmmaker who usually shoots movies with my trusty Canon 5D. However, sometimes I just need the convenience and simplicity this camcorder offers. If I need a shot that requires more stability, a smaller and much more low profile set up, or a slow motion shot at 1080p (my Canon 5D only shoots 60fps at 720p), then this is the camera I will use. I would give it a five star rating were it not for a few things. All of the usual good thins are here.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Limited manual control

Outstanding Camera, Pathetic Support,

  • Excerpt: I was impressed by ease of use and intuitive ergonomics. Both Image stabilization and autofocus are amazing, Stills are quite good as well (I usually play with DSLR's). I give 5 stars, assuming that the supplied software is not useful.(I will never have a chance to use it, since it refuses to install after not recognizing the camera).
  • Pros: Amazing Stabilisation, Easy to Use, Focus Tracking, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Lcd Easy To Smudge, Support Software
