It’s a cheap, high-quality handycam, and excels at being a handycam. I’d read some negative reviews on this camera but I eventually decided to go for it. Firstly, there seems to be an opinion that the battery only offers 30 minutes of power. This is incorrect, fully charged my camera can offer me an hour and a half of of recording, to potentially two hours.The picture is sharp and crisp, it is surprisingly light (when the battery is not attached) and offers the option to be mounted on two different sized tripods (EDIT: The second hole is in fact a hole for locking the camera on place on the supporting tripod, the tripod that mounts this camera is in fact a standard 1/4″ threaded hole, apologies). The zoom function is good, I can use it to read the spine of a CD cover 5 metres away without blurring (although it does require a specific level of zoom, full zoom may still blur). It does NOT come with any form of on-board memory, and while reasonably expensive the SanDisk SDSDU-064G-FFP memory card offers 64GB of memory which the camera tells me…

rather fine LOOK AND FEEL=============Out of the box I was able to point and shoot within minutes. Intuitive menu, and it felt quite solid and well made in the hand. Not at all cheap looking. I had suggested to my wife some shooting subjects but she declined. (Her loss.) So I filmed an array of things: Cycling, birds, dogs, kids, and even landscape.OPTICS======It has a 57x “Advanced Zoom” and so I set about testing it out in the local park. It captured the detail in the trees on the opposite side of the park (a good 1/3-1/2 mile away). The blurb states it has a 3.28 megapixel HD CMOS sensor. I found it quite responsive in low light (although better in daylight) and the colour reproduction was superb. Really superb.HD RECORDING============On my HD TV the image quality was almost comparable with some DVDs I’d been watching. I’d imagine with an editing suite set up you’d be able to produce semi-professional films. It was far superior to my…

Canon Legria HF R506 Camcorder I’m an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to home video so when the chance came up to review this camera I jumped at it. I also have the which is in the same price bracket so I can offer something of a comparison between the two.First of all, the camera feels very comfortable in my hand. The Sony feels very light, cheap and plasticky but this camera feels a bit heavier. Not too heavy, just reassuringly so. It is also quite nice to look at (if that sort of thing bothers you). The hand strap is adjustable so you can make it fit perfectly for your hand. My main issue with the feel of the camera is the zoom button on the top. It’s a very flat button so it is easy for your finger to slide over the top of it when zooming and it’s also a bit stiff to push compared to the Sony camcorder. On top of that, the zoom slows down as it reaches maximum zoom and this,…
