* Poor lighting caused the camcorder to loss focus on a number of occasions, especially when zooming in and out.
* When zooming in on subjects far away (i.e. over 400 meters) the image stabiliser was poor, i.e. I don't have arthritis however reviewing some of the shots when zooming in you would have thought I had.
These are the two only negative points I have about the camcorder, it has a great number of features and the picture quality is very good for the price you pay compared with other brands.
Downloading the images onto your laptop is straight forward using sony's software that came with it.
If you want a point and go camcorder, not too complicated, this is one for you. great for holidays and is brilliant to catch them funny moments with your children, as records in seconds when lens cover and lcd screen opened.
Simple to watch on your tv ,just plug in the lead supplied and simple to put on DVD.
Extremely light in weight and very clear picture on LCD screen, i was a bit concerned about not having the additional viewfinder, but the camcorders nowadays dont seem to have them unless very bulky and expensive. LCD screen is fine.
ONE disadvantage is the rubbish battery they send with them, i dont know why Sony bother really it would be better to charge a bit more and put a decent size battery!!!, it lasts 90 mins in SP mode,
I bought a new Sony bigger battery straight away off amazon, (they were cheapest) for a genuine Sony battery. i also bought the additional 5 year cover off Alliance through Amazon, that is defo cheapest on the net, £59.99 for 5 years, is a long time and good value, far more expensive elsewhere.
It Really Lived Up To Its Expectations. PLUS++ The Zoom Is Outstanding!!
