      Worth every penny,

      Ok well what can i say about this. For only 150 pounds you have brought a great video camera. I was given some money to buy this for christmas and i was thinking, i need to add some money to buy a good video camera, but then i found this. It does everythink that you want it to do. The picture quality is exceptional for the price you are paying. Yes its not the best but for 150 quid what do you expect. I have filmed a couple of stage shows with it and zooming in you can see every detail, and the amazing 60 optical zoom really does pick out all the features. The sound isnt too bad either, i would say it would be nice if it had a input for a external mic but you cant ask for everything. I filmed a music compitition with a range of instruments and it coped with the very load saxaphones and also the very high notes on the piano. Again not the best sound quality but pretty good for the price. The zoom in mic feature does help if you are far back in the audience. The Great size of the LCD screen is pefect for seeing everything you are filming. Overall i would say that its perfect if you have a budget of only 150 quid. I would say if you had slightly more money then save youself some dosh and still buy it. I think its done Sony's name good.
