does every thing it says it does + much more. this is my third sony handy cam there is nothing wrong with the first two, I am keeping up with technology and I've got to say I don't know how this particular camera can be bettered

sorry, just cannot think of any.. possibly it could have come with a carrying case or even a strap so it could be carried around your neck

Sony HDR-CX570E

 

excellent picture , easy to use, relatively compact , no gossip just a simple point and shoot camera, I had 4 sony so far and this was the best among them so far. highly recommended option

no night vision, no remote and i would would have preferred the G lens to be as an attachment where you can remove it or use it when you need it , the zoom could do be stronger as well.
