I'm a professional video producer (former BBC & ITV so I know what I'm talking about!) I'm about to film a lot of material in cars and needed a few lightweight cameras to stick on the windscreen using suction mounts to capture driver and passenger which would sync in edit with the audio recorded from my main camera in the back seat. I was about to buy a few GoPro cameras but the Sony CX220 looked to be less fiddly and have better battery and monitor capability so bought this. Amazing! It's very lightweight so puts no strain on the suction mount, the monitor is pin sharp and the camera has a "wobble & vibration" reduction system, electronic, not as good as an optical system, but it works for what I want it for. The CX220 is actually a cut down version of my professional Sony NX-30 camera which costs 1,600! The picture quality is comparable, and it's full progressive as well...astonishing for the price...you have exactly the same menu system and you have manual overrides for exposure, white balance etc, you don't get any sound input at all so you have to live with the poor internal microphones, but I'm only using the audio to sync with my main camera sound so it's fine for me. Amazing value, but only 4 stars as the build quality is really flimsy; cheap plastics and it's shame they skimped. For a family throwing this around on holiday. the side screen will surely soon snap, and the SD card flap underneath is very delicate, and can see this being needed to be gaffer taped up soon! The previous model was better built, but it is heavier and the lens is not quite so wide angle. Hope this is useful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Study the Form 28 April 2013
By Ian K
Verified Purchase
Having used a sony handy-cam Hi-8 with manual controls for many years, this small new camcorder is like some kind of toy but produces excellent video. I am still getting to grips with it and it needs a bit more time and patience to set up before each shoot. Only suitable for small hands I guess because of its size. Slightly difficult to set up because you have to toggle your way threw the menus to your settings, unless you simply want to point and shoot and let the camera do the work for you. Manual focus for different locations I am still looking and working at,and at present not to happy but hope to improve.
You need extras after you buy this camera like a memory card, look carefully at what you might need.Sony have been very tight at what they have put in the box.Shame on you.
Overall it provides full HD 50p and 50i as well standard definition so should meet everyone's needs although at present I have made discs at 50i becouse you need a blu- ray recorder for the 50p and a very top spec computer.
OK, yea I am learning. Buy this, the video and pics are brill but study the form if you want even more out of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sony CX220 Full HD Handycam 28 Mar 2013
By Matt VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This camera is a newer model of the Sony Handycam CX190 Full HD Camcorder - Black (5.3MP, 25x Optical Zoom) 2.7 inch LCD which I have been using for about nine months now.

The first thing I will address is the lack of an AC charger. As people have quite rightly pointed out, this is ridiculous. One came bundled with the CX190 and if you go for a much higher spec such as the CX410 you get one with that, too. What's worse is that there doesn't seem to be an obvious place to actually buy one. You can, however, buy a generic charger that the battery can be plugged into to charge it. You can charge the camera using the USB cable but this is very time consuming, especially if you shell out for a higher capacity battery such as the Sony NP-FV100 Extra High Capacity Handycam Battery. I am only knocking one star off for the lack of a charger. It is a major blunder on Sony's behalf but I'm reviewing the performance of the camera overall, not just the lack of accessories.

Unfortunately this camera also loses a star for the audio quality. There is a very slight, rapid clicking sound that is always present as long as the camera is on and this is picked up by the microphone when recording. I have e-mailed Sony about this to find out what the problem is and in their reply they said that it is caused by the auto-focus which appears to be correct. Switching the camera to manual focus eliminates the noise. The problem then is that if you try to film something too close to the lens, it will instantly blur.

2.0 out of 5 stars Little improvement on the CX190 19 April 2013
By Mr. M. A. Quinn VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have owned the CX190 for about a year now, its the predecessor for the CX220 and therefore I was expecting lots of improvements.

There are two improvement:
1) Better MP count for the stills - this is a welcomed change as the stills on the CX190 were awful, but then you wont really be using this for stills especially when filming at 1080 as it cant do both at the same time.
2) Wider angle - again a welcomed improvement for shots in a small room of the kids.

There are many things that are worse though:
1) Build quality is much worse, it feels cheaper, more plasticy, less silver trim so it looks cheaper as well.
2) Noise when zooming and auto focus seeking, its not that loud but its there and its annoying.

Things that haven't changed that should have been:
1) Sony's editing software is dog poo on Windows, I cant edit at all, the M2TS file format is very widely accepted for playback but for editing there is little out there aside from pro apps that I can use to edit. If I had a Mac I would be OK with iMovie. Come on Sony, give us a copy of Vegas lite!
2) Battery life, still pretty low, less than hour on full charge.

Overall for the price I would give this a miss, yes its small and it makes some nice looking content in decent light but I would either spend more or wait for the tech to offer something better.
