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

Sony Handycam HDR-CX115


Light, easy to use, good zoom, just take the flash card out place into computer and it downloads only those files not previously downloaded. Windows 7

Sometimes has a ripple on some films shot, may be as a result of the camera trying to focus on two points, near and far, soon picks up and stabilised This ripple effect is not on each shot, I would say on 2 per cent
