william, Hatfield Experienced amateur

Score 3.0/10
Good points:
Lightweight and compact with good picture quality.
Bad points:
No good for anybody with large hands as trying to grip camera and depress record button is difficult, supplied instruction book is totally useless much like the battery charger and all the clumsy usb cables supplied especially the short one built in to the camera. Looking for support on the Sony website a waste of time.
