Poor Product

Adrian S. Rodriguez "AROD", Amazon
30 December 2013
  • Summary: This product is pretty poor. When you record anything it comes out either pretty grainy or with bad color. It does nothing in low light. Would not keep this product.

A $200.00 Paperweight.

Swillsh, Amazon
1 December 2010
  • Summary: The sound quality/level makes the camera useless for me...and I can't return the camera. Sony said the camera wasn't working correctly so I sent the camera in for repair after having it for 3 weeks. Camera came back exactly like it was when I sent it in. Very disappointed in Sony and Best Buy, whose return policy is that they don't allow returns on cameras after 2 weeks, even if it doesn't work.

Bad Camera

Jorge H Franco, Amazon
3 November 2010
  • Summary: Not what I expected. Poor quality image. It's shaky even if you use the Steady shot mode and autofocus is just dreadful. And it's zoom it's a joke. I do NOT recommend it.

-- Alert do not buy this Camera, video is really bad.

CDK "cdk", Amazon
12 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this Camera last week and get it pretty fast as usual with items bought at Amazon. started to use it, and went to check the videos on my laptop, TV, editing software. I noticed that the video had some strange strobe, so I paid more attention to it, and checked the video frame by frame.

Doesn't work with Mac

Kindle Customer, Amazon
23 January 2010
  • Summary: I was excited to receive this device, but it doesn't work AT ALL with my Mac - the device doesn't show up in the Finder (on any of 4 Macs tried), so video's can't be used. Totally worthless; I hope this is just a problem with this particular unit. Returning.

BAD BAD PRODUCT !!!!! DO NOT BUY !!!! DO NOT EVEN CONSIDER IT !!!!!

T. Zalkowitz, Amazon
19 January 2010
  • Summary: This is probably the worst Sony product. I got it about a week ago from Sony Style. The sales person told me it was 1080p just as any other Sony camera. First of all: It is not FULL HD as any other camera. This camera's 1080p is 'bumpy'. If you want a realtime shooting you will have to use 720p. This means this is NOT a full hp camera. Now, what bothered me the most: COLORS This camera sucks when it comes to color fidelity.

Big Disappointment

Graham Law, Amazon
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I am a bit of a Sony fan and when I saw this product was due for release end March I decided to wait for it rather than go for an alternative. What a disappointment. Outdoors it is useless. With the screen at high brightness it is still not possible to see. The pictures it did manage to shoot though were poor colours and contrast I used it indoors last night at a concert. I admit it is a taxing environment but the camera kept cutting out leaving no readable recording.
