Sony HDRCX115EB High Definition Handycam 319.20 with £50 cash back and 3 yrs Guarantee and free Delivery

I looked and looked and looked for the best deal for this great HD cam and this was the best you can get it for. It is £302 from BU4 cameras.com but £17 extra you get 3 years Guarantee so no brainer really.

I did have a SD60 but it was rubbish in the end currys took it back for a refund this little baby is much better.

The Panasonic SD60 gets better reviews... what did you find better with the Sony?

I posted a similar deal last week for this Handycam from Comet. No 3 year warranty though, but I'll get an extra year with my Nationwide credit card. Just took delivery of mine today.

I also mentioned the Amazon offer as the best current deal (post 11)

Would also be interested as to why you think the Sony is better than the Panny.

Just took stock of the panny sd60 and tbh i think its amazing. Easy to edit the file format and the quality is amazing going through a 50" Samsung plasma. I havent read a single bad report about it yet so yours must be the first. Review wise i would be interested to see how the 2 compare.

is the panasonic ideal for the bedroom? low light etc

I'm interested in low light recording, I record stage shows and they are usually in very subduded lighting. Any comments from anybody about any camera?

Well the panny I had would not record. Which is sort of importent. So Comet give me a 2nd one from stock and that was the same in the end asked for a refund thats when I got the Sony.

I don't know about picture and sound differents as my panny would not work but what I will say is that the sony is smaller lighter and has better battery life.

But I don't really see what this has to do with my deal maybe someone should start a hot reviews website ?

Panny is great in low light... its even has an inbuilt light which can auto sense and switch on if needed. So LGuy im sure you wont have any probs in that department ;-)

When you say that it's easy to edit the file format do you mean on the actual camera or on a PC?? I am struggling to find any software that will play it on my Vista. My Windows 7 Netbook will play the footage back but the onboard gfx's arebog standard so the picture quality isn't great.

The software that it comes with it pretty good... but i use a proggy called 'splash lite' to play them and that works brill. Dunno the spec needed but my rig is q6600, 4gig ram, gtx285 and vista. Smooth as a babbies bottom ;-)

Is the sony full hd?

You'll be hard pushed to get any HD camcorder to perform well under low light conditions, let alone a sub £300 one....just not enough light gathering for HD work.;

You're the sleaziest guy around!

The Sony, as is the SD60, are both 1080i. The cheapest good quality 1080p would be the Panny SD600 which is around £550 atm last time i looked ;-)

As for low light... ive got no probs with the SD60 as the inbuilt light kicks in and it does help a great deal. But saying that in normal indoor low light i was happy with it without the light anyway.

Well here's my 2p.

You can go ahead & spend £250 - £500 if you like but I found the Toshiba H20 Camilo HD cam superb @ £135 from Tescos last year.
This year it's now the Toshiba H30 Camilo with a better CMOS sensor for the same sort of money.
Low light/night time use isn't good on these cameras but for daylight you'd be pushed to do better for 2 or 3 times the money.
Even when using all of the zoom (5 x optical & 4 x digital) on far away objects the image did not pixelate. Very impressive.

As a camera to take away on holiday I don't think they can be beaten and they are superb value and give a great image (this really stands out when you connect to a large 1080p HD TV).

Just installed Splash Lite and it worked a treat. I've been looking for something on and off for weeks and hadn't managed to play a single file until today, so thanks. Any suggestions on what to use to edit the footage. Windows Movie Maker crashes as soon as I drop a video file into it.
