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.

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.
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.
Full screen recording, in-camera tagging
The Bloggie Touch is by far Sony's best effort in the pocket camcorder market to date. The autofocus lens may frustrate a bit indoors, and holding the camcorder horizontally may take some Flip fans some getting used to. But the video quality is excellent and the use of the full 3-inch touchscreen really makes it easy to capture your movies.
Easy to copy files onto an external source, just drag/drop

People are very happy with such a camcorder.
Adjusting those controls is hard
We were impressed by the huge, 70x optical zoom on the SDR-S26, but the camcorder failed to deliver the goods when it came to video performance. In low light, the camcorder simply didn't produce a pleasant image, and in bright light it measured the worst sharpness scores of all the standard definition camcorders we tested this year.
In addition to its 70x optical zoom, we were also surprised by the amount of manual controls included on the SDR-S26.
When shooting at normal magnifications, the Sony DCR-SX60 does a pretty good job of keeping footage smooth and steady, despite the lack of an optical image stabiliser.
The Sony DCR-SX60 is an attractive looking standard-definition camcorder that does a reasonable job in the imaging stakes. That said, there are better SD options on the market that cost around the same price.
