I bought this little camera in the hopes that I would be able to cary it around instead of my big 10 pound video camera. I was not disappointed. This camera has the quality of a professional camera. It is full HD, has auto-stabilization and auto-focus. Here are some good things about the Sony CX-100.
Recommend this product?
Quality-The quality and picture tone on this camera are excellent. The image is very colorful and bright, I really love watching the footage I shot with this camera.
Small- When I'm walking around my block or at a social event, I can fit this camera in my jacket pocket without a problem. When an opportunity arises, I can whip it out, and start shooting.
Excellent Battery Life- The battery life on this camera is pretty good. If you add the bigger battery pack, it's excellent. I got something like 350 minutes out of it shooting Full HD.
Durable Casing- The camera casing is made out of plastic, but don't get me wrong, its a very durable camera. As much as it pains me to say, I have dropped this camera once or twice and picked it up and it works perfectly.
Although my fellow reviewer stated that you cannot record with the LCD screen closed. You actually can. There is a feature that allows you to disable the auto-on off when the LCD is opened or closed.
I like that this camera has a slow motion feature where it will shoot slow motion for 12 seconds. Although inside it degrades the quality quite a lot, outside you can get a pretty awesome slow mo shot.
My one pet peve I have about the camera is the lens cover. It is the kind where you flip a switch and the lens cover opens. This switch is very easy to throw. I find that sometimes the lens gets opened in my pocket or camera case. Although the lens is a pretty tough Carl-Zeiss lens, I don't want to get it scratched.
