What a really like about it: it’s small and light, not to many buttons and functions to operate. It’s hd, and can take photos as well up to 8mb. The battery life appears to be up to 1,5 hours, and i kept the camcorder on charging for about 20 mins. Delivery was very quick, it actualy came a day earlier.

Lightweight, user-friendly menu. Had few hd clips taken already and played back in tv. Hd picture quality satisfactory. Supplied battery could have been of better capacity. Based on my experience so far, i recommend this camera.

Bought this camera for recording flights and at airshows. Easy to set up, get battery charged etc. You have a choice of 720i/p or 1080i or p. It also auto sets if you have a hd tv. The zoom is fantastic and gets real close, the lens is excellent, the clarity of the picture is something else. One of the best handycam’s i have bought. With a 16gb sd card you will get about 1hr 30mins of hd recordings. The battery lasts about 2 hours, so i bought another one for £19. There are test videos on youtube for this camcorder, and i would recommend you check these out, this will show you how good the camcorder is. Also there is no noise when you zoom in and out which is excellent. Again the sound is superb as well.

There are several good reviews of the product already here and i certainly endorse the comments already made. I would just repeat a couple though as i have been using this product for some months. A second battery is a must – don’t get caught out filming the family having a great time while on holiday on the other side of the planet and your camcorder just died.Take all worry away and have a backup you can just pop in, you may not be able to charge the single battery at short notice. A second high capacity memory card as previously suggested is also a must. To me there is no reason in having a hd camera with hd tv’s at home if you don’t film in 1080p hd on your camera. This will use memory space faster but capture the raw footage in the best format you can. You can always drop down to post on line or save to a tablet etc but you cant go the other way round so capture the best you can straight away. Good quality memory cards are much cheaper these days.

Sony CX280 Full HD Handycam – Black (50x Extended Zoom) : I’m going to start with a comparison, because amazon reckons the cx280e is the new version of the cx250e and i happen to have access to a cx250e. Checking the specs, the cx280e is inferior in several ways, notably 2. 3″ touch, which i’ll return to below. It also lacks tracking focus, golf shot and a mic input socket, but few casual users will miss those. The only thing that did irritate me was the manually-operated lens cover. On the other hand, it retains all the most valuable features, such as face detection, and has the benefits of lower weight and price. I shot a lot of comparison footage and found it hard to detect any significant difference between the two models on picture quality, stabilisation or sound quality. When it came to usability, the smaller lcd of the cx280e made it slightly harder to see and review what was being shot.

Good but warning no uk sony support. I enjoy this camera but recently have not been able to transfer videos by the inbuilt cable to my pc. This is not a huge problem as you can removed the sd card and slip it in the pc and the transfer works fine. I was interested, however, on contacting sony support to be told that this was not a european model and that therefore they could not provide any help.

Good hd camera (but i hate on screen menus and no (slr) viewfinder – can’t see anything on the screen when it is sunny). Worth shelling for the extra £30 to get the version with projector (which i did not know about at the time). One con – you cannot charge a battery while filming. Battery life is about an hour of filming, so buy a few.

Very good value for money, would buy againthe video quality is great for home use, the battery runs out a little quickly, so buying a spare battery to charge up and take with you might be a good idea if you are planning to use it often or for long. I’d say about 3 hours of filming, 5 hours of off and on again for pictures. Takes great pictures, but this really does look best out in good, natural light. Inside, even with lights on in the evening pictures and film look grainy. The less light, the more grain. Don’t expect it to work great at nightdoes not come with an option to plug in an external mic, but doesn’t really need it for home use.
