Excellent quality Sony

Not SD card compatible

Quality in daylight is excellent and stabilisation is fairly good when zoomed out. Zoom is decent enough. Quick start is great, just open the screen and you're ready in a couple of seconds. Smile-shutter is brilliant - it takes photos automatically...

No light, and quality in dim light/night isn't great and quite grainy. No separate battery charger.

Sony Handycam HDR-CX106

 

Superb bold and colourful footage in a compact camcorder that fits the pocket both physically and financially. The ability to have an ever ready high definition camcorder means that you never miss capturing first class action as it occurs, whether that...

I just wish that Sony back off with their persistent demand that we use their expensive memory stick. But perhaps this is more of a nit-pick than a bad point because albeit with reluctance, I can live with this situation.
