Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This camera is amazing. The pictures are so clear and it works really well in low light conditions. I love that you can take a still photo whilst filming and that it snaps people automatically if it catches them smiling. The photos taken with this are georgeous (10 megapixels) so no need for a sepatare camera to carry around. You will need Sony software to edit but it is well worth it. Highly recommend. Just a note though, this version of the camcorder does not have GPS as some models do, I don't think that is a problem though.
Bad points:
None that I can see.
