I am very pleased with this camcorder. I am very pleased with this camcorder. I am an older person but it was very easy to follow instructions and get started immediately. I like the quality of my movie of the queensferry crossing and the forth road bridge. I simply plugged into my tv to watch. I also downloaded the movie editing software recommended in the instruction booklet. It downloaded to my laptop no problem and i found this easy to pick up too. I am yet to try the time lapse which is the reason i chose this one. I like all the different adapters, these are very useful. You have to buy a sd card separately but you have a variety to choose from.

Bought one feb 12 straight from sony. Picture & colour quality excellent butimage stabilisation disappointing andi am astonished that no separate charger is included. The batterries have to be charged through the camcordervia a cable and an adapter – well, not very wonderful tohave to buy one separately.

Battery life is very good and spare batteries cheap. However, still pictures are poor. Makes a great camcorder, but if you want top quality still pictures, its best to buy a dedicated digital camera.

Sony CX240E Full HD Camcorder – Black : Great for a first time user. This an absolutely lovely camcorder, and great for a first time camcorder user like myself. Previously i’ve only ever had experience of using other peoples, so this is something new for myself. What i will say about this camcorder first of all is it’s very light. But on the plus side, i was wandering around on holiday and could easily hold it without any issues, or my hand getting tired/sore. Even with the hand strap, i did make sure i had a good grip on it. It’s remarkably easy to work, although i did have a couple of issues getting it set up with the time and date, just while trying to work the toggle button on the viewfinder. I think a touch screen would have been easier, as that’s what i’m currently used to, but i’m steadily getting used to it, and gave it a good workout while i was away. The memory card is not where you initially expect to find it, and this confused me no end to begin with. (try reading the instructions?) when you fold out the viewfinder, you can find the memory card slot in here, which wasn’t obvious to a non-instruction manual reader like myself. But once you know where it is, you don’t need to worry. This is brilliant for taking still photos too, although sometimes the stabilization isn’t as great as it is as recording. For someone like myself, who has notoriously shaky hands, especially when i’m nervous, the stabilization on this is perfect, and i’m really pleased with that aspect of it. I did find that a couple of my still photos weren’t entirely perfect, but that may have just been me getting used to it.

Seems ok, but the plastic casing feels kinda light and hollow compared to the next model up. Footage and sound came out well though.

Note the limitation of this camera. . Returned this item, not because it had a fault, but i wanted to record long videos which required a mains connection. This camera will not record whilst connected to mains supply.

Works as expected with no major hassles. You can access the files on the camera for use with other software, but sony doesn’t mention this and there are no issues with the mpeg4 files when used with corel movie studio x9.

Hi i am giving this a low star rating only for this particular reason. I do hope this helps anyone who is looking for the answers to a question i was at first looking for. Sony did confirm to me that this camera has no live hdmi out. So if you wanted to record and view as you record on say a hd screen rather than just the small flip out screen you cannot do this. Only playback is available of the recorded material.

Ordered this camera for badminton and other sentimental reasons. It does everything i need it to do. With fhd recording at both 50i and 50p the videos look great on big screen and badminton isn’t blurry thanks to the 50fps. The battery lasts me around two hours of recording which more than enough but if it ever ran out i can just plug it into my power bank. The battery can also be swapped out for another too. It supports class 10 micro sdhc cards up to 64gb (i think) which is great as i use a 32gb micro sdhc. Videos save fast and in big durations and quantities for a fhd 50fps video(s). The hand strap can be adjusted accordingly to your hand size for a comfortable perfect fit. The screen can be rotated for any “selfie” recordings, etc too.

No memory whatsoever supplied, which let us down when we went to use it.

After a lot of thought, and a lot of research, i purchased this camcorder to improve my youtube videos. I’d previously been recording using my iphone, so this was quite a change for me. The face tracking software on the screen is perfect for my needs, and as i can spin it over, i can see what’s recording. Previously i was having to set up, record a clip, go back, view, adjust until i was happy. This saves so much timeit’s small and light, so easily portable. Also comes with all the gubbins to attach to a tripod (a must for stable videos), i’m delighted with my purchase. I’d recommend to anyone who wanted a step up from their phone.
