One of the best low light performances
The HDR-PJ710V churned out one of the best low light performances seen so far this year, essentially turning last yearâ?? s biggest weakness into one of this yearâ?? s greatest strengths. The new Sony PJ710V not only produces brighter images than last yearâ?? s CX700V, but it also showed far less noise and better colors than its predecessor. Sony also improved its SteadyShot image stabilization system, which was another area where last yearâ?? s CX700V had some trouble.
Impressive - Floating Lens is Uh-May-Zing!
Sony has certainly moved the video camera into the next century with this one. The HD video quality is pristine, and the camera is very easy to use. And the floating lens and tracking focus are exceptional. And I haven't personally seen these features on any other video camera. It is pricey, but this is a great video camera. I'll definitely be reaching more frequently for this one over my Canon.
iimpressive little projector with the camcorder.
This camcorder is fully loaded with every conceivable feature, and we believe it compares favorably to the best camcorders from Panasonic and Canon coming in 2012. The HDR-PJ710V is a Smart-Review top pick.
Best wearable camcorder ever
The Sony Action Cam may not have everything we want from a wearable camcorder, but this is an excellent first step for Sony nonetheless. The Action Cam HDR-AS15 was built on some great ideasâ?? the WiFi functions work well, the slow motion options are easy to use and churn out decent videos, and the on-board menu system makes sense.
Like most adventure cams, performance from the HDR-AS15 had its flaws.
Initial impressions a good start for Sony - Sony HDR-AS15
It is a good start by Sony for their first entry into this market. Despite the limitations above, I expect many of them to be addressed through third party added accessories that solve the microphone input limitation mentioned here. Most videographers using footage created by these cameras don't use onboard audio anyway.
Compact and light, High-quality 16-megapixel Exmor R CMOS sensor
If you are new to action cameras, the Sony Action Cam is a great place to start, and Sony is certainly a brand that nearly everyone knows and trusts. The Action Cam is an excellent first-up effort from Sony, but this should be no surprise as has a long and distinguished history in making top notch still and video cameras. The new GoPro Hero3, however, is the camera to beat in the segment now, but it does come with a price premium.
The bottom line is that while this camera has a great app, is super small, and takes very nice video, itâ??s just not that easy to use. While I like it a lot, generally speaking, it seems better-suited for activities where it can be mounted externally and controlled with the app, rather than worn on the body.
Interesting little Camcorder
It didn't come with a transfer cord, and it took me awhile to find the charger (It's in the handle, a usb built-in cord), but all in all it's a very nice camera for the money. The high definition files take up a LOT of space, but on Mac, Quicktime converts them to manageable formats in just a couple minutes. No more long rendering times. In fact, when I Export the file in Quicktime, it takes a four minute video about 3 minutes to render for Wi-Fi, and it goes from nearly a gig to 11 Mb.
WiFi connectivity and wireless features
The Bloggie Live's benefits include a lower price tag and a simpler feature set. It's a dedicated camcorder, so you don't have to worry about all the other features, apps, and costs associated with owning a smartphone. Then again, if you already have a smartphone that can record and transfer video wirelessly, then there's really no good reason to buy a Bloggie Live.
Capable, well designed camcorder
The Bloggie is a good choice for someone who either doesn't have a decent camera/video camera on a phone or mp3 player, as it does basically everything those devices do.
It also has several features not found on iOS: stills while recording, steadyshot, stereo sound, dedicated still/video buttons, 60p mode, and direct sharing with other smartphones to name a few. I found myself reaching for the Bloggie when I knew I'd want to take some video rather than relying on my iPhone.
Live-streaming capabilities via built-in Qik app
Without a doubt, the Sony Bloggie Live is the most versatile pocket camcorder we've tested in terms of wireless streaming, peer-to-peer sharing, and still-image resolution. Admittedly, it lacks a couple of useful features found in Kodak's Zi8, such as a mic-in port, a dedicated macro/landscape toggle, and removable storage. Is it a compelling alternative to a higher-end smartphone?
Small size and light weight make this camera easy to have at all times.
Pocket camcorders have come a long way, and the Bloggie Live MHS-TS55 proves that. This camcorder has fully embraced the technology of high definition and combined it with ease of use and portability. Uploading and sharing with social networks, YouTube, smart phones, and tablets has become an effortless process through this little Wi-Fi enabled device. It only takes a few touches on the camera's 3-inch touch-screen and you're done.
The camcorder feels flimsy and the lens is prone to fringing.
They're cheap and capture video, but don't buy the Sony Handycam HDR-CX190, CX200 or CX210 thinking that you're getting a great bargain on a real HD camcorder. If you're going to buy one, get the cheapest; nothing on any of these is really worth the extra bucks.
Very nice product for the price
I use this for outdoor sports (lacrosse) where zooming, panning and side to side sweeping is important. The small view finder is a bit hard to follow a player in the outdoor glare, however the picture quality is really good. The anti-shake is awesome, even when not using a tripod, the image quality is fantastic. The zoom is a bit touchy.
The easy-to-use Sony HDR-CX190 Handycam camcorder records stunning 1920 x 1080 Full HD video and 5.3MP pictures.Sony HDR-CX190 is stabilized 25x/30x extended digital zoom lens gets you closer to the action while a back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor allows you to capture stunning imagery in low light conditions.Sony HDR-CX190 's Intelligent Auto mode analyzes your shot and then automatically selects the appropriate settings from nine distinct scene modes.
Low price with good image stabiliser and powerful zoom.
The main selling point of the Sony HDR-CX190 is the low price, but it has some optical advantages all the same (zoom and stabiliser). The image quality certainly isn't the best example of Full HD, but you'd be hard-pressed to find better for this price.
Clear Photo- 2.7 inch display
Sony HDR-CX190, with its High Definition Camcorder and Handycam has become a favorite of many customers who already purchased it as it offers many trusted features that meet their satisfaction. You can't go wrong with this hi-def camcorder.
Good video camera
This video camera is perfect for me and my use for family and travel video recordings. I found the HD quality quite good, even in low light. I did not detect any graininess indoors and of course all outdoor videos were quite sharp and color true. I took video of some cranes walking around in the yard with the zoom and it was crystal clear, really beautiful. You could see the birds' eyes and feathers sharply.
Clear video even on the move.
DCR-PJ5E handycam camcorder comes with ClearPhoto LCD screen, which gives you better visibility for both indoors and outdoors with high resolution, sharper contrast and more accurate color reproduction. With such display power, the image does not wash out even in bright sunlight and you can check the framing and subject color tones in details.
I also find the camera uncomfortable to hold, giving very little room for fingers without constantly, and accidentally hitting buttons (mainly, the silver side button), when held in the horizontal shooting position. If there was no issue with the sound playback mentioned above, I would have kept the camera and just trained myself to hold it differently, as well as learned to tolerate the lack of 'touch screen' responsiveness, but because of the playback sound issues, I'm sending it back.
Sturdy build and waterproofing
Sony's bloggies have never quite been the value option. If you want a decent waterproof pocket Internet camcorder, then Samsung's W200 is very keenly priced, Polaroid's X720 even more cost effective, and then Panasonic's HM-TA20 and Kodak's Playsport Zx5 are also both cheaper than the bloggie Sport. Features are also very limited, even for a camcorder of this type. But this is a typically solid Sony device, and of course image quality is top of the genre.
Shock and waterproof body
The Bloggie Sport won't challenge the pro-level video cameras in terms of features and quality, but its simple interface and sturdy, waterproof body is likely to appeal to families at the beach or the extreme sports enthusiast who regularly finds his or her camera submerged in water.
Decent video performance
The Sony Bloggie Sport is much like previous Sony pocket camcorders only a lot hardier. Waterproof and impervious to dust and (moderate) drops onto hard surfaces, you'll struggle to break it. It's simple to use, with barely any settings to tweak and one huge record button to kick off video although the touchscreen can be slightly unresponsive at times.
A small HD digital video camera recorder with a projector... How cool is that? But is it worth it?
Overall, the camera does deliver when it comes to capturing HD video in well-lighted or outdoor environments. But how important is the project for you, that's probably going to be the biggest drive. While it works great from outdoor shots, if you are looking at it to capture your baby or child when asleep or in low-light, the camera may be too dark/grainy for your taste.
