Complete Garbage

Tested out this camcorder in store (optimal conditions of course) worked amazing. once I tested it out at home just with regular lights on it was a little fuzzy but not too bad but in low light COMPLETE GARBAGE super grainy faces were washed out (no visible facial features but eyes eyebrows and mouth yes that means you could barely make out even a nose). This would be a good starter camera ONLY in optimal conditions. plus the file size is absolutely ridiculously huge for the quality. Best advice I can give, just STAY AWAY. returning mine tomorrow

Cheap and useless

i just got one to supplement my GoPro for better video and zoom. It's not better but much worse. Practically no image stabilization at all. GoPro Session 4 has way much better video than this. I doubt it is even 1080p. More like 640. Save you money.

Very Bad Quality

I bought this camera to record videos for youtube but found the video quality of this camera is really bad even at highest quality. Even my galaxy s6 phone record in much clear and sharper video quality than this. So if you looking for quality video dont buy it you will be disappointed.

Bang for the buck

This product is easy to use and is light in weight and fits in a lot of bags. It does record good and the sound is good. I use it to film my new born. It is easy to use and stable recording.

Amazing At This Price Point

I am an avid videographer that has a number of social media outlets with my work shared. I have a couple different cameras already and took a chance on this one. I had read the specs and decided it might be good enough for my intended purposes. I wanted something light and quick to operate. I am thoroughly impressed with the video this item creates! Having the ability to shoot in 60P with new 50Mbps XAVC S makes for silky smooth video. I tried shooting from a moving car and was amazed at this light as a feather (my iPhone SE is heavier) camera. The dual footage creation is really handy. The automatic smile detection for capturing photos is really handy when shooting family video. No need to hit the photo button, the images are instantly captured. This is an excellent first camera and gives the user new and old plenty to work with.

Great Camcorder

I have used it a few times. I love it. Can't beat the price. It does what I want. Don't hesitate to buy it.

Good Value for the price

The quality of the image is amazing, also acts as a good camera. Amazed at the low light capabilities, yet as with any low light shooting, dark colors may band slightly. You do need to go manual though if you do not want 9 pm on the street to look like 5 pm. Also works well with tripod as it accepts the standard screw mount.

Excellent Wide Angle

For the price this is an excellent camera. I do miss the ability to add a UV filter in front of the lens to protect the lens itself but this is more than overcome by the availability of the 26.8 mm wide-angle lens that this unit has. The default setting is 60x zoom, which does blur the image on highest zoom level. By changing the anti-shake you can switch it to just using the 30x optical zoom (which is still 800+ mm, more than you ever need). This 30x zoom significantly improves image quality. Note that XAVC S mode is only available when using a 64G memory card

Very easy to use

Love this camcorder. It takes both pictures and video. The picture is Sharpe and the camera is lightweight and small. Very easy to use.

Excellent value for money

I've been looking for an all round compact video/still camera with a powerful zoom lens that could give me HD vid & decent stills for a couple of years now & tried out several even twice the price of this Sony & none offering 9.2 MP, saw it on Best Buy and because it was Best Buy with their fuss free returns policy decided to try it and on receipt & trial I wondered why I hadn't found it earlier, it knocks the spots off anything I've previously tried, as an experienced video/ still photographer (used to do weddings etc) yes I would have liked Mic input but not much else its brilliant. Extra lighting indoors & a tripod for related activities sorts everything out & the huge bonus was being able to remove the card, slip into my laptop, open up windows live movie maker (win 7 cos I like it) & edit, burn a DVD in as many minutes making life so uncomplicated. & it slips into my pocket !! Unbelievable 20 years ago !! Thoroughly recommend it even tho its coming to the end of its run I believe & you can't always be sure that the newer model will be better !!

New Cam

I have an older model that I think is fantastic. Just bought the newer one for my kids that does TWICE as much. Cool.

Awesome little camcorder

With the small size of this camcorder, the resolution really is incredible. Even when the camera is set to the highest possible resolution, it can still do more than 2 1/2 hours of video on a 64 GB card. The camera is advertised to be compatible with 4K hd, though I'm not really sure exactly what that means. In testing it with what I believe to be 1920 by 1080 resolution, it can do in around 5 hours of video on a 64 GB card. Contrary to what it might show on the box, it's compatible with Windows 7. PlayMemories Home allows you to easily burn your videos onto blu ray discs. Not sure how it works with DVDs as I don't use those anymore

Spectacular video for the price

Amazing video quality. The optical stability is better than I have seen on cameras costing much more. The camera is very light, easy to carry and discrete. Controls can be preset and will provide you with great video through a wide range of environments. You can't do better for your moneys worth, highly recommended.
