A Great Camera
II recently purchased a Sony HD Video Recording HDRCX405 CAMCORDER which included a Deluxe Accessory Kit and had it delivered to my grandson for his birthday. He has been making films since he was 4 or 5 years old and wanted a camera that was capable of close-ups, a higher resolution than he had and able to use a tri-pod in case he decided to act in his own films. His Mom and Dad tell me that it is everything he wanted and more. It has not been out of his hands unless he is attending school. He has made several films already and he will be able to get badges for some of his work in Scouts.
Compact and lightweight. Comes with many accessories. Very easy to use. Especially like the ability to take stills as well as videos.
good camera. easy to handle. only thing that's a pain is to upload to computer, i have to pull chip out then put in converter then put into computer and reverse to put it back into camera. it says you can use usb to connect to computer. it lies
The battery last quite a while. Good pictures. The audio lacks some but nothing that I can't live with. Would recommend.
Sony Quality not Delivered
Camera has grany results no matter the settings. Very disappointed in this camera. Thought it would be a step up on prior none HD camera but it is not. Last Sony I will purchase. I do like the fact that a 128 gig card will work. I tried three cards to see if that was the cause of poor quality video. However, a 16 and 32 gig were just as bad. UPS misrouted so it arrived too late to send back and get another brand. Grand daughter's wedding video not to the quality expected from a Sony product. May still return to Walmart.
Quatity over quality.
Wrong memory card was sent didn't fit in the camera. Tripod was different from the one pictured and does not extend. For the price the bundle was a great deal. The camera works great.
