BUILT TOUGH!!!
5 Star Review   By HVF4 on Sony - Official Store - Jan 2, 2014   

I love this Sony Handycam. And what made me love it even more is my experience with it this past summer. I went on vacation with my girlfriend to Orlando, FL. This is the second time I take this camera on vacation with me. Long story short, It was caught in all sorts of weird weather. It rained, it poured, and it even fell a couple of times off my bag. Yet it is still working 100%!!!! Sony I love this camera! This was built to last and all I can say is that its still filming strong!!!! Thanks SONY! Love the full 1080p HD recording as well!

Don't get
2 Star Review   By itech on Sony - Official Store - Jan 3, 2013   

I got this camera for to record videos for my company. I use it for recording the screen of my iPhone and iPad. The quality of the video is really horrible. The camera picks out every pixel in the screen of my iPhone and makes the video very blurry. For the videos that aren't the screen of my device is still very blurry. When I upload my videos to YouTube the max quality is 480p (one level below HD). The only way to get the quality over 480p is to send it through iMovie, but the quality is no better.

Excellent Camcorder
5 Star Review   By tinman1981 on Sony - Official Store - Jul 3, 2012   

The camcorder records with very high quality. The camera is easy to use. My only concern was with the battery life, but extra batteries are fairly inexpensive. I would have no problem suggesting this device to friends and family.

3 Star Review   By CyberPro on Sony - Official Store - Jun 5, 2012   

My previous SONY camcorder was easy to use, had a touch screen, and didn't need special software to download and edit video. SONY Play Memories software is hard to install and use, not very user friendly. Value for price is not there.

My 2nd Sony Video Camera
5 Star Review   By EQop1 on Sony - Official Store - Apr 27, 2012   

My last sony camera I bought in "98" and still works. Now, I wanted new technology with better image quality and easy transfer of recordings to other media, plus a still image camera built in. I am very happy with the quality and ease of use. Hope this one will last me 14 years.

Small and affordable
4 Star Review   By soccerdad on Sony - Official Store - Mar 8, 2012   

Great price for a full HD camera with 25x optical zoom and unbelievable onboard software, but you will have to buy a memory card to film anything. Plus, you'll have to buy a mini HDMI cable if you want to playback footage in HD from the camera on your HDTV.
