    We have been working with videos since the time before the HD era. We shoot educational videos in a fairly difficult environment that requires more advanced manual control. This camera is exceptional. Compared to our previously used Sony SR12, this camera is utter joy to work with both in studio and in post production. So, if you are a video blogger or want to shoot some short videos to market your business, this camera is a great choice.

    This is a well made beauty from Sony. Amazing picture quality along with an excellent image stabilising system. The optical zoom allied to the clear image zoom is superb. To have a viewfinder is rare these days, but as a videographer for 30 years, in my opinion a must in some situations. It’s not surprising that Sony didn’t forget to make this adjustable too. I’ve used a HC3 for 10 years, this makes a perfect upgrade with many features similar but enhanced to bring up to date. Incidentally the HC3 still works perfectly, with only one repair of the LCD screen in that time. I’ve looked at other makes, but with several Sony’s giving unbelievable service over 30 years, I have to say they’re probably the best. I can’t endorse the model and the brand more highly.
