Robert, Fleet, Hampshire Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good picture and sound quality. Manual override allows for some creative shots. Use a good solid tripod for the special shots as the camera is so light even the steady-shot struggles. The Sony handycam tripod with control arm function works brilliantly.
Bad points:
When the lens shroud is attached access to the manual function ring is very fiddly! Why can't Sony make some Apple Mac software available instead of having to use Final Cut for even the simplest of jobs? There are more than just PCs out there!

Ian, Huddersfield Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Tremendous picture quality. Very easy to use. Lightweight. Bravia sync. Quick turn on.
Bad points:
Because of compact size their is a compromise of where inputs are located. Mic inputs are just behind the holding strap. Whites and patterns on shirts can wash out when using automatic settings.
