Most helpful reviews

tom, Doncaster Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Compact handycam with full HD ideal for amateur or professional situations.
Bad points:
On/off record button can be awkward - it is possible to press "on" to record and find it has not actually switched on! Seems to be designed for small fingers! Best check is to ensure that standby changes to record in the lcd screen. A good tip is to put camera in "easy" mode - the screen icons are larger and easier to see. Wood have liked a lens hood accessory - none made by Sony who claim lens is set back to avoid the need (it isn't!).

Vikki-, Wallasy Experienced amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Features are plentiful and the ease that you can get to them is quite a big +,
I will say the software that come with this camera makes the product so much better,, IT allows you to view edit and mess around with ,I use PlayMemories and love the quality of footage from this camera,

So clear and I take sreen shots from the footage and they are wonderfully clear Still Photos,
Bad points:
The Microphone is annoying and so bad if it is windy,
I use a blue Tooth mic that fits into the Sony shoe to get around this problem

Battery life ig average to Good, (Depends on many points),, BUT A spare is recommended as you never want to turn it off as with 40 gig,,,
YOU NEVER HAVE TOO,,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It can focus on daylight as well as night. It did focus on fireworks at the distant. I have got two of these camcorders.
Bad points:
I filmed firework display and it had trouble focusing on some of fireworks. I did set it as fireworks. I think I got to close. I also could not down load my videos on my computer, which is running on Windows XP.
