    I use this camcorder primarily to record youth football games from the press box. I was worried at first about the quality of the videos because of my need to use the zoom feature so frequently. I was more than satisfied when I took the camera home after the first game and plugged it into my tv. The picture was clear and I unlike some reviews on here I was not unsatisfied with the sound.

    The battery that comes with this bundle lasts me a little over 2 hours which is exactly what I needed. More than satisfied with the purchase.

    I shopped for weeks looking for a Camcorder that I could dedicate to just recording video without using my phone… This is the result.

    It’s a great camera for a great value. Set it up based on several recommendations from sites and other users… works great so far. Very happy with this camera.

    Word of advice for folks looking in to buying this, the memory card that comes with this is a fairly decent one, but do yourself a favor, and get several REALLY GOOD memory cards. This isn’t like the old VHS days; Don’t go cheap. Do your research, and get either a Sony, Samsung, SanDisk, etc, that can handle the suggested data rate for HD video in this operation. Class 10, with a 40 MB/S or better. Aside from setting your cameras settings, that’s how you will truly get the most out of your video quality.

    Overall this camera is perfect for my family’s needs and uses, especially this deal.

    I’m currently looking for a small, inexpensive ‘steadicam’ type of hand mount, once I find it, I will probably fall in love with this camera all over again.

    i love taking photos and video, and i previously had a sony camcorder. and missed it dearly. i paid $350 for my old sony camcorder well over 10 years ago. it still works. the only reason i got another camera, was my old sony camcorder driver would no longer be recognized on newer laptops, so i was forced to get something else. i got a pocket camera with dslr capabilities. the camera was another brand. i was always pleased with video, photos, and loved the dlsr capabilities for the $130 price i paid rather than $1300 or higher for that type of performance. but with that being said, it was not a sony camcorder. i am glad i purchased this sony bundle. camera alone is well worth the price! everything else i consider free. but we all know how much a battery can be, let alone a sony battery, we all know how much a camera bag can be, we all know how much an extra sd card can be let alone a sony, and we all know how much a mini tri-pod can be, and all of the following were included: extra battery, love the bag, came with sony sd card, mini tripod, everything else is throw in. knew right away out of the bag and started recording, that i really missed my sony! for the price, this takes tremendous video and photos. the timing was great because i was able to test photos and video on the very rare blue moon that appeared 7/30/15. as far as the comments on “focus”, i have had no trouble, everything came as stated in description. i am including a photo maybe not the most professional, but this was taken right out of the box on thursday night 7/30/15. if you are still not sure about the purchase, look up this sony on youtube reviews and this made my decision easy. and if you need instructions how to use it, once again, use youtube as a guide.
