This is a superb price for a great camcorder. Just a shame it uses the sony memory.

#7

#8

#10
Is the discount code only applicable on this camcorder?
#11

#12
how can you get 5.1 surround sound from a single microphone?
#13
Just hope the HD quality isn't the same as the picture in the OP's post:whistling:

Note this isn't compatible with Mac's, and if you want to do anything with your recordings aside archive them (i.e. post-processing) the unheard of AVCHD format coupled with Sony's dreadful software will ensure it's an absolute nightmare, and limit your possibilities drastically. That said, it produces fantastic quality videos, even in low light.

This works fine with the Mac an iMovie 08.
#16
AVCHD is quite standard for HD in todays market, and yes apple did have a problem with this format (not the camera) but as posted above you need the correct software / codec.
#17
oh, you changed the image, I thought it was quite funny :(
#18
looks great!

The video review on Amazon says it comes with a 4GB memory stick and that it records up to 1080i (not full HD but not that it matters).
#19
there are some good reviews for this camcorder but some very damning reviews!

It's omnidirectional.

There are 2 mics pointing forwards and 1 mic pointing backwards which record and mix into 5.1 (i think)

AVC-HD is a very well known format created and used by both Sony, and Panasonic. The majority of after market editing programs are now compatible.

Can be used easily with Macs, just as long as they are Intel based. Supplied software is nothing to shout about true, but I cannot remember the last time I saw any manufacturer supply software to compare with the real deal.

Sony's Video editing software (Vegas) is very well respected.

Great camcorder. Defo voted hot:thumbsup:

HOT HOT HOT...
In such a hurry to get in on this deal, I ordered on super saver delivery, saw the prime trail offer, signed up so I could get this in time for the half term, but than was unable to amend the order to use the one day delivery, after clicking express option to see but without confirming the change, I later found out it had already gone through as £4.55 extra for the express option, without an option to cancel the order.

Anyway, will try to recover the £4.55 from them as I had not confirmed to the change, but even at £375.50, this is hot price for a hot digital camcorder.
BTW, been doing alot of research trying to find out if you really need the later 'Video HD' Memory Stick Pro Duo cards for use with these cams, if the faster write speed is needed, but nothing suggests the standard ones with 3Mb/s write speed are not fast enough, so I've bought the 8Gb Lexar card from mymemory for £19.99. Reviews says you'll get about 30mins of the video at the highest settings on a 4Gb card, so writing in real time means it will be writing at roughly 2.23Mb/s.

lol.. I hope I've got that right or it'll mean an extra card for my camera..
#25
:-Dyeah, thats whats been putting me off. Great price for the camera but the cards are just too expemsive. If the standard pro duos work then I might just buy one of these
#27
yes! amazon have agreed to refund me the express delivery charge.
will be getting it next tuesday, memory card hopfully sometime next week too, will post my findings on here 'if i remember' and not driven away by the joy of this cam,, :)

All we have to do now is find the cheapest place for that matching case?!
#29
I've had my eye on this camera for weeks but it was looking a tad out of my price range.

Until I found this coupon - saw it Friday, ordered it 10 minutes later. Parcel arrived Saturday morning!

Camera is great, thanks.

so anyone found a cheap case and 16gb card yet?

The lexar 8gb from mymemory works with no problem, so really no need in spending the extra... near enough double price tag for the 'mark2' or 'HD Video' cards, only thing is the transfer will be quicker to your computer.
Bought the lowepro rezo 30 from amazon depending on colour, around £10-11. maybe a 'little' tight, but fits no problem.
I'll hold out till the price of the 16gb or bigger cards come down in price, quick search and they came up over £60. I remember how I felt after getting a 1Gb or 2Gb pro duo for my phone for something like £75 a while ago, and didn't take long till they were less than third that price. :?

Now reduced to £366.05 including free SuperSaver delivery

Not tried this with the original discount coupon because I already got the camera. But now they seem to be offering a free memory stick upgrade...
