I was looking for a light weight, small camcorder for a trip to Alaska next month. This one is perfect. Lots of features and easy to use.

good picture, sound needs improvement
I use this camera to record special services at church. It's the back up for the main camera (same made and model). Picture is good, the mic is very weak. overall a good camera if you do not need a good sound recording.

Excellent camcorder for the dollar!
Great HD camera. I bought mine to use with my iMAC and it fired right up with iPhoto and iMovie. I had been using my iMacs camera to shoot youtube videos and this camera gives me the whole frame instead of the smaller videos my computer shoots. Plus it's lightweight and compact so I can take it anywhere with me. The picture quality is amazing and the Dolby HDR-CX190.

enough quality for it's price
I like SONY, but in pictures and videos, depending on products what I had (digital elph 12.1mp / HDR-CX190) and what I have heard from others, I would say that quality is average, pictures and videos are little bit not realistic, it's like there is more red color. In this model lens are too close to the edge of corpus and sun is reflecting on lens in sunny day, it's comfortable to handle, fits hand good, good and modern menu, enough zoom, it has not power on/off button, turns on when open, turns off when closed, that's not practic.

I'd highly recommend it for basic HD home use, but it's not for pros.
I bought this camcorder first, to make tutorial videos, then for just general home use.
PROS ~ For very basic family use this camcorder excels. It has clear video quality and is simple to use. Very small and lightweight, pocket-sized. For the price, it's a great general use camcorder.
CONS ~ The built-in mic will only pick up conversational volume voice up to about three feet away from the camera. And that has to be directed toward the mic, not away from it.
For the more advanced use, like filming normal conversational volume dialog from a longer distance - such as narration - it does not pick up well. It lacks a microphone input that other models have. [This drawback didn't show up in my comparison shopping. And after researching, I can find no work-around for it.] This is why I gave it a 4 out of 5 overall rating.
The on board speaker is poor. Even in a quiet room, it's difficult to hear the audio playing.
I find the "joy stick" style menu control a little "plasticky" and it seems fragile. I can't compare it to on-screen menus, but there seems to be lots of levels to go through to get to where you can either play or delete your selection. That's why I gave it a 4 out of 5 on ease of use.
On the plus side...
It will take the Sony RM-AV2 Remote Commander remote control for smooth tripod filming, using the AV input. The remote gives you the ability to turn the camera power or the record function on/off, zoom in/out, and snap still photos with a smooth touch of a button. That eliminates problems with camera jiggle when doing those operations. It also makes self-recording much more convenient, with it's 5 foot cord. [This remote also works for most of Sony's other consumer level camcorders.]
TIP ~ For extended use indoors, you can always run the camera from the plug in charger and not have to worry about the battery running down.Read full review
