Gary, Manchester Professional videographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic Image quality with seemless intergration with the editing package supplied.
Great quality and value for money enterting the HD image quality market.

Very portable and a very generous hard drive capacity.

Very well made and ergonomic (not to confy in the hand though due to small size)
Bad points:
I make tutorial video's in the education spectrum so I work and film alone.
The camera has no recording led/light in front of the camera and no facility for a remote control.
I am used to Sony camera's having the latter 2 items as standard so this is a great dis-advantage
to me.
Bit awkward to hold.
Image stabalization not up to Sony's usual standards.
It's a great camera for point and shoot but definately not for creating self-video productionss where
the user has to be in front of the camera.
