Good price. I've been after a new camcorder to upgrade from my MiniDV one.

This review isn't too complementary though:

I read that review too. However when comparing price against other camcorders in this catergory it does still stand out as a good deal with the cashback. I've got an old Sony MiniDV aswell which I've owned for over 6 years now and its totally let me down on a recent trip to Disneyland Paris (seems to have developed a major problem with glare and really struggles with daylight). I figure this one looks a worthy replacement.

Another observation for those of us that already own older Sony Handycam models (such as older MiniDV format camcorders) is that the batteries look to be compatable with their new range. I myself have 2 batteries with my old MiniDV which is a further incentive!

This gets better! Having read the t&c’s I do not see anything that hints at this offer not being available in conjunction with any other offer (i.e. cashback) so this looks valid to me.

Thanks for posting

That bag looks ok. Sells for £14 and has good reviews.
I still have the camcorder bag from the last Sony promotion a few years back but this one can fit a pocket digital camera in as well.

Cold, not full hd as per title, poor camcorder.

£184.72 here:

http://www.waeplus.co.uk/product/287839/SONY-HDR-CX190-High-Definition-Camcorder

says "This is a european model, provided with suitable adapters for UK use, where required." so not sure if they are a UK dealer for the purposes of the Sony offer.

I got a CX115, which I suspect is an inferior spec to this, for £150 thanks to a previous HUKD posting and for the money it's great.

Video of camera, lacks the sharpness I think.

The cashback is only valid at authorized UK dealers, can anyone confirm if digiplus is a valid dealer?

I have to say the Panasonic SD90 is incredible...I have the more expensive Panasonic TM900....but funnily enough in outdoor video with the sun out, my friends SD90 had better video, wider angle lens. Only one MOS sensor but greater megapixels compared to each individual sensor in the TM900 (3MOS) camera. Colours more vibrant in the SD90 but TM900 probably more accurate. Add to that the benefit of it being lighter with greater optical zoom and significantly cheaper and you have a great product. I can imagine in different settings the TM900 would rule eg low light and better onboard sound with 5.1 capable but still.

Full HD 1920x1080i = not 1080p which is full HD.

Is the one at Huses.net the same as this this?
Can anyone justify this? I have never heard of this website in my life before, also the .net domain looks dodgy.
I have missed the GBP249.99 deal with Pure silver GBP5 olympic coin. Would not want to miss more!!!!

Around £150 on Ebay through Argos - might come a s a return or damaged packaging but essentially new with a full years warranty. I got one here and it is fine - excellent value for money
