Sony HDR-CX115E review

 

Solid-state AVCHD cameras tend to be small but the CX115 is absolutely tiny. It's still comfortable to hold and use, though, with a familiar layout of buttons and touchscreen controls. The black finish looks smart, but it's also available in blue or red.

A well balanced, attractively priced AVCHD camera, but pipped to the post by the slightly better Panasonic HDC-SD60

Battery life I can see being a problem So i think we will be buying a spare much bigger battery. You have to push the screen quite hard, (I think having an I Phone means I am usued to touching it lightly I am sure the camera screen will not brake.)
