    Little guy packs a punch

    I got two of these on deal and I used them to replace a couple mini dv cameras that were 1440 with these that are 1980 x1080 I believe. Great quality choices and double the frame rate of just a few years back 60i. The ability to use wifi to run them is cool and it's own built in projector which I haven't used yet... My only negative with these is that every Sony video cam I've ever owned (5 before these) they all had touch screens, and on these you use a little joy stick on the flip out monitor.... Yeah everything else jumped forward but now it takes a bit longer to do anything because that tech jumped back... Overall though, really packs a punch for the size and price.

    I bought this to record my daughter's volleyball games. It works very well. The only drawback is that you have to keep the screen open to record. If it had the ability to record without it being open battery life would be awesome. Even the ability to turn off the screen would be great. I just bought extra batteries for it and it takes care of it. Video is crystal clear, I use a 64 GB memory card and that had plenty of space to record all the games over the course of a weekend. Sony makes some great products and this one is another of them.

    I purchased the camera to use on a cruise with my family. Didn't have a lot of time to review all features/uses before using the camera on our cruise. Camera seemed very easy to use and the projection feature was very unique and useful. I did experience a loss of all the photos/videos I took for the first three days. I opened the camera to review the pictures I had taken last and the display read "No photos or videos". Disappointed about the loss but I continued to use the camera during the rest of our cruise. I contacted Sony when I returned from the cruise but they didn't have much to say about the loss of my photos/videos nor did they offer to do anything about the loss.

    I really don't have enough experience with this camera yet to give it a proper rating. I will say it seemed easy to use right out of the box (which is basically what I had to do the day I bought it!). I think it's fairly easy to figure out it's settings, but the day I used it for filming a presentation, it cut off after an hour (memory full?). I later realized it was because I had it on the highest quality setting. So, take note, if it's on that setting, I guess you don't have much memory storage on the camera. I love that it's small & easily portable. That's a real plus. I love that it's Sony...I've always had good quality results with Sony camcorders. I think for the money, this is a good, basic camcorder.

    Excellent, lightweight camera. Takes very good videos and functions seem to work as described. Two minor issues are battery life is short. I record my kids sporting events and two hours run time seems to be the average on full charge. Had to buy extra batteries. Other issue is I wish the recording feature had a "pause" button so the video stores on one continuous file. I only have the "stop" button and this separates the video into a file every time. Minor stuff.

    My review is from the angle of a sports mom. I bought this spur of the moment when I couldn't find the charger to our other Sony camcorder. Let's just say that I love it! It is easy to use, easy to download, and my favorite is the zoom on it. The film of my son playing football was awesome - so clear and crisp, vibrant colors, and the zoom looked phenomenal. My only complaint is that it almost feels too small and the view finder could/should be bigger. However, I wouldn't get rid of this one for the price and great picture quality!

    Not only did I have to get to the point of demanding to speak with store manager after trying to get assistance, several employees looked at me, walked right on by and didn't even acknowledge me. I had went to customer service to request help, the lady did call out to get me help but it took me getting manager to get help. and no the store was not busy several employees were walking around or talking with each other. In should have walked out and went somewhere else.

    Bought this as an Open Box in store and played around with it. I love this little camera its nice and clear. Just what I was looking for when it came to a video camera to do Unboxing videos and record my dog's antics. The Audio is a little strange but it works and the built in projector is a very nice bonus. Not played with it much but I want to try it with my video games just to mess around with one day.

    For the $, this is a very suitable camcorder that performs all the traditional features well. A good value for your dollar. Its zoom and picture quality are very good. Only features I don't like are low internal memory (you'll need a micro SD card) and its plastic exterior feels "kinda cheap" but all-in-all its a great camera and Sony is usually pretty reliable for me.

    Can't beat the Sony handycam

    I would give this awesome LITTLE memory-capturing device a 5 star but only the reason for the 4 is ONLY because it does not have true night vision like my old Hi8 mm handycam (IR light with capture technology)... But I'm finding out that they don't make them too much like that anymore. Other than that, the projector, the HD, the options and many other features makes this budget-worthy handycam a Great deal!

    This camera is super light and easy to carry in one hand. Its functions are easy to understand. It's a great camera for beginners. I'd like the picture quality a bit better as it can be a little grainy if it's super sunny. I upgraded to this one from the 405 version since this one has WIFI capabilities.

    The camera is easy to use and takes nice video. I was looking for a video camera that would also take decent pictures. This camera is simple to use and with a memory card takes a lot of video. The “joystick” is a little temperamental at times. Picks up background noise easily but it says it doesn’t have noise reduction. Overall, Great price. Nice quality.

    Bought this camera to replace an old Canon and I'm not disappointed. Shoots very well in daytime light. Zoom is awesome. Ok, in dark rooms as expected. Just make sure you get the correct memory card type in order to shoot the highest quality with this camera.

    One of the few lower end camcorders available in store at my local location that matched our needs. This model unlike its predecessors allows live streaming of video from the camera via compact hdmi to our video system. If you want to output video as composite, be advised there is a special cable required that is not carried by BestBuy.

    This camcorder is not too bad. i like that it has internal memory as well. The instructions need updating as they tell you that the max memory it will take is 64GB. However, I installed a 128GB memory card and it works! So buyers let it be known that this camcorder can support the 128GB memory card.

    My daughter loves this camcorder .... both in terms of ease of use and quality of video and pictures. To top it off she went crazy when she discovered it could double as a projector. I seldom rate products as five star and gave it a four start because it seems to be a little flimsy but so far it has held up fine.

    We bought this as a family vlogging camera and wouldn't you know it has gone everywhere with us. Lightweight design makes it so even the kiddo can hold it up and talk to the camera. The wife carries it in her purse so it is easily available any time. We are loving this camera.

    We used this little camera on a vacation to New Orleans and it worked great, even out on the swamp tour. We also used it at my son's flag football game this last weekend and watching his game on the projector with him and his coach really helped us go over the game together.

    This is product has been great for setting up to record my sons baseball games and hunting trips. With the wifi capability, I can start and stop recording through the app on my phone. I can also zoom in and out on the phone if needed.
