introduced in January and released in March this is an extremely popular camcorder that it wasn’t available in user communities who buy in group sets nor at on-line shopping malls who noticed unclear shipping dates . in case like this you head onto one of SonyStyle showrooms and check in case if an member who reserved the product in advance has cancelled . though they sell only in announced sticker price they do credit your membership points – for use later on another Sony product .
for the pure reason that this camcorder does not have any bad reviews . with considerable size for a hard-disk type . buttons are well placed and touchscreen always a joy . and having tried other makers on digital cameras and camcoders Sony is best on motion correction .

camcorders normally have a shorter wide angle than digital cameras so try a couple of add-on lens if needed . then one of the cooler points of this product is its original Sony case which engulfs the machine around and sporty to carry around though bulky when put into luggage .
