Sony CX280 Full HD Handycam - Black (50x Extended &hellip by Sony
This device produces excellent quality pictures in true "HD" and is relatively easy to operate in the field. With a 32mb card you can get 2 hours or so of recording. The HD pictures can be played back on a TV using the "HMD" input and will not disappoint.
However there are some issues I should like to point out ;
(i) The battery supplied does not have a great life span on one charge and you will need to upgrade to a higher capacity one.

An absolute gem !! If you only know Charlie Byrd from the "Bossa Nova" records with Stan Getz you will find this 2 disc set a revelation. many of the tracks feature Byrd on acoustic guitar and the result is a plethora of delighfful performances of the highest quality. Three of the albums feature small group settings and there is one mainly featuring a larger group from 1958. 100% recommended. it is my best purchase in a long while.
