Confirmed purchaser semi pro film maker

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
the colour inhancement with the 3ccds if great, in live music conditions with coloured lights flashing all the time it stands out a mile. it recreates the colour and makes it more vibrent than even your own eyes do and compared to the hd cameras it more than holds its own in those conditions,I am not saying the is totally true, the fact is it is not, but in low light conditions it make a drab looking scene a lot better.
Bad points:
the composite video out is suspect I have had 2 Sony DCR-VX2100's that have suffered the same problem,
it loses signel due to usage it seems to com loose on the board,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This is the first semi-pro (or amature?) camera i've bought, and all my initial worries from reviews I read were soon swept under the carpet. I mainly use it for indoor events, which tend to be quite dark. The VX2100 picks out every bit of detail and it still remains to be beaten by bad lighting! It's easy to use, with well laid out buttons and although its quite front-heavy (which made my wrist ache a bit after a few hours) it works a treat when doubled up with a good tripod. It looks the part and im yet to be frustrated with anything to do with this camera...big thumbs up from me!
