Great quality pictures.

Attempting to peel the sticker from the screen caused me to start to peel the actual screen!!! The sticker location is bad and the screen attachment must be inadequate. Navigating the menu to get to what you want is tricky.

Light and easy to use

Battery life could be better. Should come with at least a 32Gb SD card, it comes with none. Shame on you Sony. The video light is next to useless, all it succeeds in doing is shorten the battery life. You should be able to turn off digital zoom.

As digital recordng of surprisingly versatile and elite prestige quality I have never experienced such a professional and verstaile camcorder. The zoom feature adds rather a relability impressive recording touch. It's definitely handy and only requires...

No muting of sound/volume recording. Causing immense amounts of time-wasting. The microphone if it can be switched off reocrding sound, I would appreciate how this can be done - haven't been able to achieve this after a month of attempts.

It is easy to use. It has got a good zoom facility. It uploads quickly to the computer with its USB cable.

When you zoom in too close, sometimes it blurs the picture.
