Native MTS camcorder format is not supported by many players. It needs to be converted to H.264 usable by BlueRay players ...
I was reading reviews before buying this camcorder, and was just amazed how much ridiculous stuff people were saying. Some have no clue what to do with this (or Canon...) HiDef camcorders! Speaking about this CX100 - there is nothing to be scared about. Nor about Canon's or others Sony, Canon Panasonic's ... all using slightly different flavors/methods of recording AVCHD. Sony happen to mark their movies with MTS extension. I have ~6 years old Pentium 4 2.8HT/2 GB RAM/XFX with NVidia7600GT card/DirectX 9.x. (Window Media Player +Xvid plugin) playback is not perfect, a little choppy but acceptable. Please note, that if you computer preview is smudgy and choppy, this is NOT a CAMERA fault! Same video is played perfectly fine on Blue Ray player when converted to H.264. I also have new unibody 2008 Mac Book pro OS X - laptop detects camera right away and launching iMovie08, offering video transfer. If you have older, non Intel Processor Mac - forget about this camera - and ALL OTHER's AVCHD/H.264 camcorders - most likely they will not be working for you. So, please, do not write negative reviews, do not confuse people, OK?
I do not use Component and AV cables (they still in the box). If you do, you are downgrading HiDef video to patetic Analog quality. I refuse call it a "Standard Definition". HDTV is new STANDARD! And that other thing is, Analog.Read more ›

Love this camera and highly recommend it.
I was looking for a camera that was:
-Small for traveling
-Does not use tapes
-Great HD quality.
The Sony HDR-CX100 was just released. I usually do a lot of research when it comes to technology, but the handycam fit exactly what I was looking for:
-Card Based Media
-Great HD Quality
I really took a chance on Quality, without testing at local store first..
But it worked out great the camera Is AWESOME. I even put it to a test.. I used the Handycam (all set in auto mode) along with the Sony HVR-Z1U 3CCD High Definition Camcorder to record a theatrical performance.. The quality matches perfectly.. cutting between the two cameras is seamless..
The size and superb HD quality, makes this a Must have for any one looking for compact HD handycam.
The camcorder arrives with eight gigabytes of memory built in, so you can begin shooting as soon as you charge the battery. A card slot accepts a Sony memory stick which can be used either to extend shooting time or as a backup to the internal memory. You can copy the files from the internal memory to the Sony memory stick in the camcorder so you'll have backups for your video before you even get home. Place the card in a secure place, and if the camcorder gets stolen or falls in the lake, you'll at least have the video you backed up.
The CX100 is easy to use. Charge the battery, open the viewfinder to turn the camcorder on and you're ready to shoot in full automatic mode within three seconds. Autofocus works fast and accurate, even in normal room lighting. Automatic backlight compensation lets details be seen in shots where normally the subject would be underexposed. In auto mode, the white balance is accurate in even the most difficult, mixed lighting conditions.
Of course, all these controls can be set manually, albeit via the touch screen menu, which can be a chore to memorize the many settings for fast access.
Outdoors, the image quality is simply stunning. Colors are rich, but not over saturated. Color accuracy is nearly as good as setting the white balance manually. Autofocus is flawless. Exposure is accurate, almost never washing out except under the most adverse conditions. The image quality outdoors comes within 95 percent of some professional camcorders.Read more ›
