Sony should stick to games consoles, 5 Jun. 2007
Sony, a leader in the games console market, (well was once), has brought out a camcorder which looks great on paper, but delivers well below par.
The touch screen is great, yes the lens is quality, 30gb of hard drive space, wow. But hold on, what is this? No built in light? So filming in dark areas is impossible. Unless you want to use the Nightshot function, which turned some of my wedding video into a scene from the Predator movies. 5.1 surround sound, is available, if you want to spend the cash on the microphones.
And the software bundled with it, has been bundled together. Great if you want to simply cut films up and burn them on to a DVD but any other type of video editing is a no go area.
Avoid this camera if you want to produce anything of quality, if you simply want to take snap shots and then rig the camera up to your tele for a quick viewing experience then this is the camera for you.
