Summary: Perfect DSLR companion When we first get into the DSLR craze we are amazed at the video quality out of the box. But then we run into the battery life issue. Then we realize the sound is subpar.
Summary: I bought this camera originally for my wife's business. She wanted to start filming short YouTube videos for her profession. We've also used to for all manner of personal videos from family time in the back yard to my daughter's high school volleyball games. Now I'm no professional.
Great camera for those who know what they are getting.

Summary: The important thing to realize with a camera like this is what you are buying. This is a camera that nicely straddles high level consumer handy cams and entry level pro work. If you were ever shooting video on a DSLR and thought of how cool it would be to have that sensor in a video camera, that is...
Summary: So what you get is a hybrid camera with a huge cmos sensor, inter-changeable lenses but this camera was made with video production in mind first and photographs second. I used to have canon DSLR's (5d mk ii etc.) and made the switch to sony and so far I'm really happy with my decision.
Summary: Had this camera a few days and so far I'm in love. I have a Nikon 18 - 55mm lens on it at the moment and it takes higher quality stills than my actual Nikon camera. Not to mention the HD video doesn't have the 12 minute cap. This camera performs great in ever situation I've put it in so far.
Summary: Well what can i say about this camera, read all the Mixed reviews, so was undecided until i got a call to Video a wedding at short notice, i already have a panasonic agc160 and a sony alpha a55, but needed another Video camera, cos the alpha series are not good at Video.
Summary: Well I won this camera at a raffle and i was like wow, worth 2500 bucks, ebay and make 1500 and call it a day. I am a pro videographer and i was not expecting much. Got home and just HAD to open it. When i played with it i was like WOW this is really nice.
Summary: Here's a short review of mine. This is not a professional camera, it is something in between your typical HD camcorder and a professional camera (with a bunch of inputs and dials that is too much to deal with for an average person like me).
