Takes great video, but has some major issues with image stabilization that I can't live with.a) The BOSS stabilization system overshoots when you pan. Pan along and when you stop panning, the lens keeps moving a bit and then comes back a bit.
Nice features. Great auto control. Very small. Nice zoom levels. Very low noise in low light.
Image stabilization issues. Keeps wandering when you stop panning. Must fight the camera to keep the subject centered. Image stabilization turns itself off whenever it wants to.
This camera replaces my nine year old Sony HDR-SR1E which was one of the first 1080i camcorders available, I only changed because the LCD monitor touch screen failed. I sincerely hope this camera can last as long. Firstly, as ever in my experience with Sony it has a great feel of quality and build.
The camera is amazing in every way except for that it has a noticeable shake on the outside edge when shooting in 4k mounted on a tripod. This is a very well known issue with this camera and they claimed to have fixed it with a firmware patch but after applying the firmware the problem still...
Used it to shoot a soccer game standing on a step stool. Worked perfectly. Shot at 1080p at 60FPS to maximize steady shot and allow for good slow motion replays. If you can hold the camera reasonably steady you can do the same. Got lots of complements on quality of video.
Pretty darn good stuff
Great product, price, and service.
This is a very full featured camera considering the size - which doesn't sit much above your average "family vacation camcorder" size (providing you're not a time traveller from the 90s).
Simple to use. (Didn't read instruction manual yet) Video looks really good in low light situation. More expensive than other 4k camcorder, but worth it.
I recently returned from a 7 week vacation in Europe where I took over 4 hours of superb video with this new camcorder. (I had previously used a Sony HDR-XR500 HD camcorder on four earlier trips to Europe. While I was pleased with the results of the HD camcorder, I wanted something better.
Only just resonantly had the camera but was drawn to its size and and its promises of excellent specs . Not been disappointed love the use of its 16-9 chip and the motion cancelling properties ..
