Good product, would recommend it – high quality picture for a budget range, but also compares well to pricier similar products.

This is my fourth sony camcorder, every time i update the camera has been smarter and smaller, and this is certainly true of the hdrcx130. It is tiny, but it performs brilliantly well. I watched dozens of youtube videos about this model and read all the reviews i could find. The zoom is brilliant up to 42x extended. It has a wide choice of video recording settings and i have successfully recorded avchd onto a r+ dvd with excellent quality on wide screen hi-def tv through my ps3. I also bought the vegas movie studio software, which is good but takes some getting used to. I am now in the market for a sony or lg bluray burner which will give me the best home video system i have ever had.

A excellent video digital camera for the funds. It arrived on time, or perfectly enough to be ready to acquire it with us on family vacation. The top quality of the graphic is astonishing, outstanding zoom (it really is my initial movie digital camera that offers me a magnification of an item larger sized than what i can see with my naked eye my prior videocamera was a sony minidv with 10x optical zoom). The menus are effortless sufficient to look through so i did not have to have the manual, and scarcely browsed by way of the presentation booklet. 1 thing to point out is the weight: really light (compared to what i’m employed to). Properly if i realy want to be picky, i would say that if i consider to participate in it on my laptop in the very best resolution 1080/50p, the movie stream is so big that it looses syncronisation with the sound. In other words i have to have a movie card with hdmi port and a very similar screen, the dvi relationship doesn’t appear to be to provide more than enough band width.

Some reviewers of this products appeared to have huge difficulties with it. . No thought why, this is a inexpensive prime quality merchandise, my five calendar year aged enjoys using it. You will have to by a memory card for this product, wich is not pointed out, but they are only a couple of quid. Don`t get hung up on no watch finder, it`s fantastic with no, basic to transfer to my personal computer, or make copys on a disk.

A extremely nice minimal camcorder with ‘view highlights’ a very good very first stage. On the other hand outdoors on a dazzling day it is pretty difficult to see the display screen and there is no look at finder. This applies to most new camcorders. I also find it odd that sony vegas film studio recomend you use a 24p frame location but this camcorder only provides configurations of 50i or 50p. Photo good quality straight from the digital camera on an high definition tele is quite very good. The browser software program that arrives with the digicam is also quite great.

We are a firm of private investigators and now have three of these handy cams in use. The zoom was the feature we needed for good quality close up footage from distance, and these cameras don’t fail on that score. Yes the footage does become unstable on max focus but we make sure we have a stable and solid grip to reduce this. Even in low lighting at distance we have managed to obtain irrefutable footage that clients have asked what night vision camera we used to obtain it. Playback features are great along with the functions you have to carry out to delete files, which you cant do accidentally unless you’re a complete numpty. The other aspects of this product we like are its size, its fits neatly into the palm of our hands for discreet handling and carrying, and we have found them to be very robust, having had ours thrown around in the backs of cars, stuffed into pockets and thrown into bags, all have worked brilliantly. Added to all this the carl zeiss lens are extremely durable and effective. We have yet to use a better pocket video camera.

Usb cable gets very strained and tight. After owning this camera since first release to use as an everyday camera i would recommend a second back up camera to be used along with this camera, because the usb adaptor which is built in to the camera by means of a single wire becomes very strained after prolonged use every day. The cable itself broke just before christmas and i am having to put the camera in the lotus position to get it to upload the pictures now. It does not charge anymore by this method and i could not wait any longer to get the camera to play ball so i reverted to putting the sd card straight into my laptop. I am not knocking sony for their camera, it’s perfect for vlogging and it still runs strong today but for a simple charging and uploading through a single wire without some kind of protection from kinking and everyday use does need to be looked into or at least strengthend if you plan to use this camera everyday.

Fantastic video quality and easy to use. It is small enough to carry and hold in your hand. Everyone in my home liked it.

Ease of use make this camcorder an easy to use tool for the whole family. The autofocus & face recognition features ensure that even the most inexperienced can use this & come back with decent quality images.

My first camcorder and an exccelent choice after much research. Fabulous zoom with mega picture,but would benefit from a external micraphone.

This is my first hd camcorder and i am very impressed,the quality of the video is amazing. The camcorder is easy to use the zoom function is excellent and the steady shot gives great videos on the move. I bought the camera for the arrival of our first child and shooting videos for grand parents. I was going to buy the handycam with the projector but apart from internal memory and the projector i could see little difference and all the grandparents and myself have bravias(you can control the camcorder using the remote control of the bravia) so got this and it is very good.

It is a great product, easy to use, excellent screen, very handy on-camera usb cable. The switch on-off using the screen is also very useful. Didnt take any pictures yet.

Very good purchase and good service. Amazon runs good service including delivery and packaging. The camcorder is in fact a surprise to me even after i anaylyse its specs for quite a while. The only drawback i can see, which i knew when i was comparing for a decision, is there is no external microphone slot. Other than that, it is even beyond perfect to me. Light, cute, stylish, hd image, it gets all it can get. Btw, never mention it only costs no more than 200 quid after cashback. For those family members like my wife or parents, it’s more than enough for them to record our life with it. I would strongly recommend this as well as the value purchase from amazon as always.

We were very fortunate to own a sony hdr-hc5 camcorder which was capable of really high quality images. However, with it being a tape based camera we didn’t find it particularly convenient from a number of perspectives. As a result, we probably didn’t use it as much as we should have done particularly with a new born baby. I actually found myself using my canon eos 5d mark 2 much more (which also incidentally takes mind blowing video). With baby number 2 on the way, we decided to plump for a new camcorder. From experience, i was conscious that camcorders such as the panasonic 3mos range offered a great picture but were outside the upto £300 budget that we set ourselves. After a lot of searching we finally plumped for the sony hdrcx130eb based on the reviews for it’s video, it’s size and zoom capability and finally it’s really low price (particularly if you take in to account the cash back that sony currently offer). In terms of use it’s very slick to use once you have it set up as you would like. Picture quality is pretty good in decent light (when viewed on a 42 inch panasonic plasma and a 22 inch monitor) but isn’t quite as good as the hdr-hc5 in low light (and definitely not as good as the 5d mark 2) but that’s to be expected at the price – i would like a bit more sharpness and punch from colours though.

Maybe not the dearest camcorder available but certainly one of the best. Unbeatable value, this little gem will fulfill the needs of most everyday camera enthusiasts.

The camera is lightweight, great quality video, the image stabalisation in amazing (i could walk around and it’s as steady as if i’m on rails). I can put the sd card straight into my windows 7 pc and playback the movie. I’m no video camera expert, and nor would i like to be; but i am delighted with it.

Just to let you linux people know that my pardus system will read the card using a usb card holder and the video can be imported into kdenlive, edited and then rendered to disk or file. The camera is super and so easy to use with good facilities, zoom and low light quality. Enjoy it and you won’t use your still camera again.

I am a professional cameraman working with hi end hd broadcast cameras on a daily basis. I got one of these cameras for some in car footage i needed to shoot, in quite difficult circumstances such as high lateral g forces amongst other issues. ( i film and photograph test cars to high levels for a living )i imagined the image stabiliser would most likely struggle due to the moving around the camera did. To me it was seen almost a disposable camera and i wasnt too precious about it. If it broke i would get another one, sort of idea. I needed a flash card type as there were as few moving parts as possible, and a tape camera or dvd would not be ideal due to the g forces. Well i can tell you here that this camera has performed faultlessly throughout, and the image stabiliser manages to smooth out even the most extreme movements in the car. The autofocus works very well, as does the auto exposure, and looking out of a dark interior into a bright sunny exterior is a as difficult a test as any camera would be asked to perform. The lens stacks up well against a £15,000 braodcast camera, and in fact looks even better than the £50,000 camera lens combination that we cut with it.

Super camera indoors and out. . I bought this item in preference to panasonic rival items, partly down to price, but mostly because available accessories (e. Batteries and lenses) are up to half the price of their rivals. So far i have not been disappointed at all. I have played around with the hd settings, and early viewings show me an excellent picture with very little picture noise, even indoors. I’m using transcend class 10 16gb sdhc cards, and they seem more than able to cope with the data rates, even as high as 28mbps. I may be lucky enough to use software that can edit from the highest rate hd (28mbps) available, but even 17mbps avchd footage is pinsharp. The single best upside though to this is;- even if you don’t have a blu-ray burner, or capable software, when in 17mbps avchd mode, the video files are stored in folders that can be burnt straight to disk and watched on a blu-ray player. Though there is around a 30min limit on avchd burnt to dvdthe optical zoom works effortlessly, and without jerking around between fixed steps.
