"As of today"

 

I now own 3x cx900's.. I record live stage plays and not only do I care about visual quality,but I also emphasize high quality audio.. I use an xlr adapter on one of the cx900's and sync the other in camera mic to the main audio. I'm not that bothered...

Powerful Camera but with flaws

 

This camera's night vision, even without Nightshot, is extraordinary It takes great pictures and videos. Nightshot is great, too; however, I would have like to have seen Supernightshot as well. Now--here are my criticisms: Having the USB lead come out...

Solid performer

 

Moved to HD 1080 from Std definition with this one, and a good pick it was. HD res. and 5.1 Surround sound has made huge difference. Quality Zeiss optics like my last Sony. I have compared to other HD Camcorders and it is better and has a full 1" CMOS...

Good Set of Easy to Access Manual Controls, WIFI.

 

I own an HDR-CX760. Purchased this unit as a companion to my 760. Unit is much larger than Sony's other consumer units. Zoom speed is very good and not too fast. Viewfinder has eyecup to help deflect stray light. Focus speed is slower than the CX760...

Weak on Automatic Focus

 

While basically a very good video camera in many respects, I find it unsatisfactory in automatic focus arena. There is no point of focus indicator you can use to maintain proper focus. I find the focus is often on what I do not want in sharp focus,...

Don't really see the difference

 

I bought this unit to replace my aging HDR SR12, which I loved, and I must say I don't see any difference in image quality. Sure, this one shoots 60p, which is great for slo mo, but as far as noticeable improvement in image quality with this 1" sensor?...

Nothing beats a Sony!

 

I use camcorders for streaming live video 24/7/365. This means the camera is never turned off. Two years ago I purchased two Canon Vixia HFG10 camcorders because of their low light capabilities (which are quite good). Well 13 months later (1 month out...

Great video but problem with 60p sound

 

This Sony model takes great video at each frame rate option (though auto focus is a little slow). However, there appears to be a technical issue with recording at 60p (and only at 60p)-- the sound recording is clipped/cuts in and out and also has a...
