Create high definition 1920 x 1080 60p videos and high quality 8.9MP still images. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the ExmorR CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

We are doing habitat restoration work and use the camcorder to document wildlife. The zoom is smooth, and at full telephoto, resting the foldout display on my thumb while I use the touch screen really helps to steady those long lens captures. Image quality looks great and the abiltiy to follow focus (a face or animal) is more useful than I anticipated.
The real bonus is the built in projector. We use the camera most of the time to temporarily capture imagery to share. For example it is much easier to verify the identity of a bird (especially with the long telephoto) then project the image while we go through the field guide. I carry the camera instead of binoculars. And considering the price of a stand alone projector, inclusion of one with the camera is an amazing deal for such a useful tool.
All that said I have to say the coolest feature on this camera is the projector. You can have the camera make a playback video in projector mode that takes a sampling of your videos and still shots from the time period you selected and puts music and transitions to them. I spent a few days with my sister and her family at Disney World before our mom and grandma joined us. Each night we would watch the day's footage using the projector feature and letting it produce the show for us. The children loved seeing themselves on video and everyone loved how the camera assembled the footage. Then when our mom and grandma came we had a big show by choosing to make one project out of all the previous days. It was great fun and an awesome way to tell them about our trip up to that point.
Obviously I highly recommend this product. I love, love, love it.
These are all of the things I love..
-Projector is AWESOME (darken the room and focus the picture and its a huge success)
-I wish the battery were enclosed and not coming right off the back end of the camera
-the touchscreen can be a bit finicky, I have big fingers and sometimes it takes a few times of me pressing the screen for it to register. It doesn't bother me but it can be frustrating
Anyway, I am an amateur user in terms of some I know. I just want to make a few movies of my family and record special occasions. For those things, this camera is fantastic. I can't wait to use it more and see how well it films.
