Ordered this camera for badminton and other sentimental reasons. It does everything I need it to do.
With FHD recording at both 50i and 50p the videos look great on big screen and badminton isn't blurry thanks to the 50fps.
The battery lasts me around two hours of recording which more than enough but if it ever ran out I can just plug it into my power bank. The battery can also be swapped out for another too.
It supports class 10 micro SDHC cards up to 64gb (I think) which is great as I use a 32gb micro SDHC. Videos save fast and in big durations and quantities for a FHD 50fps video(s).
The hand strap can be adjusted accordingly to your hand size for a comfortable perfect fit. The screen can be rotated for any "selfie" recordings, etc too.
The camera also features a mini HDMI port to get your videos and pictures up on big screen without having to do any importing or whatnot.
This also comes with USB extension cable (male female) as the built in charging cable is very short. Don't forget the USB mains adapter is included too. Also a HDMI to HDMI mini cable is included (male male). Proper Sony branded cables and no cheap third party rubbish.
Two things I found which may prove to be a problem for others although doesn't bother me are; the lens cover isn't automatic and has to be opened and closed manually. Additionally, the photo capture button is quite sensitive and located close to the zoom slider so can be triggered easily by accident.
