Excerpt: I bought this to replace my HDR-FX1E for it's main purpose of wedding videography. The more I use this the more aggravated I get. Firstly and most importantly, this camera is absolutely atrocious in low light situations. Worse than my HDR-FX1 which was 8 years older. I start to panic in overcast weather using this as I know I'm going to have bump up the gain to it's highest setting causing a grainy picture and the iris only reaches f3.6.
