Khim , Wembley

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent HD quality and compact at the size of a coke can. Sony lives upto it's standards of quality products again. Well done.
Bad points:
Only 8GB memory available which means can only record 1 hour on memory card. It does not come with mini HDMI cable and you have to charge the camcorder on its docking station, hence cant charge and record at the same time, unless you carry the docking station around with you.
