A Camcorder or a handy-cam is a great tool for capturing memories in the form of memorable videos.

Sensor Technology for High Quality Captures

The Sony Camcorder is equipped with a high quality Exmor R CMOS sensor which is well suited for high quality video capture under a wide range of lighting conditions. 

Zoom in on the Action

This camcorder is also equipped with a powerful lens assembly that can support a zoom level of 32 X for the purpose of closing in on the action from quite a distance away. This is useful for subjects that are at otherwise unattainable distances away from you.

Keep it Steady

The SteadyShot function in the Sony Camcorder is a great feature that will come in handy even for seasoned users. The function allows you to record a relatively steady shot even when you are not holding the camcorder in a steady mode. The Active SteadyShot keeps you shooting almost like a pro even when the going gets rough.

Lens Prowess and Type

The Sony Camcorder is equipped with a 29.8 mm Wide Angle Lens that is well suited for a wide range of different scenes and landscape modes. This standard type lens is also the best choice for home videos and random shots that involve both indoor and outdoor scenes.

Display Type and Technology

This camcorder uses a 2.7 inch Wide Clear Photo LCD display for showing you the visuals like a viewfinder.

Still Pictures with Quality MPs and Video Modes

This camcorder can also double up as a high quality camera with the ability to take pictures at a decent 8.9 MP. This is easily seen and reviewed in the LCD panel, allowing you to decide if the photo needs to be reshot or not. The camcorder is also able to capture videos in High-Quality AVCHD or in a Web-Friendly MP4 Format.

Best in the price range

Guys I bought this camcorder from flipkart during 15th august sale. So I got it at a very less price. Just paid Rs. 17,084/- Received 1 week earlier than the promised date. Flipkart is the best and trusted in this regards. With the camera got all the original warranty receipts and free 4GB SDHC and carry case. The carry case quality is just awesome.

Now coming to the camcorder from day one I just loved it because prior to buying I had done lot of research and found that this is the best in...

Overall a good Camcorder, with few issues.

Overall a good camera, but have certain issues which should be considered seriously before buying it-

5. You have to use PlayMemories program for all downloads, it is not a plug n play USB devise.
Video quality is good even in low light. Very handy a...

Nice Camcorder within the price range

I bought this just before my son was born. For most of it, I loved it. for the given price range, it has nice video quality, powerful zoom, easy to handle and fairly good battery life.

On the downside, often it takes time for image stabilization. So often at the start of the video, or after zoom in-out, you get out of focus video. Also the video is very grainy for indoor, limited light situations.

The video quality is very poor. So is the sound. My HTC One S's camera is better than this one.

Yes, there is a zoom-in function and all that but why do you wanna zoom-in when the already poor quality becomes further horrible!
