Customer ratings & reviews
I read as many reviews as I could about this camcorder before I decided to purchase it. Everywhere online, it has an overall rating of 4.5-4.7, so I felt pretty confident in buying it. It's been less than 2 months later and the backlight in the LCD viewfinder has gone out. I can't see anything in the viewfinder and I can't use it! I can't return it because I made the mistake of not buying a warranty and SONY is giving me trouble trying to get their warranty to fix this. I do not recommend. This has only been used a handful of times and no one has pressed down on the viewfinder enough to cause damage to it. In fact, all I did was sit down and it blacked out!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

OK for the PricePosted
I bought this camera to video football and soccer games. Can't beat the price but, it does have some shortcomings. There is an issue of clarity with rapid telephoto. Image gets blurred and then clears when zooming into a football play. Feels very light and I also noticed that what I see in the viewfinder/screen is not what gets filmed. The video doesn't get the bottom portion of the action so you get lots of sky and tight filming on the bottom.
I would recommend this to a friend
