Fantastic !

I've been tracking this very camcorder on Amazon for 3 days, trying to decide whether to get this or the slightly better Panasonic SD60.

This new reduction has made my mind up. Bargain.

Heat left.

Yep I checked the price this morning and it was 330 pounds odd. When I checked a few hours ago was reduced by amazon to 289! and the promotional 50 pounds and VAT back make it under 200 pounds!

Nice - cheers...

Good deal - ordered

In fact with the two promotions this camera at £204 is a fantastic deal - just amazing !!!

Wouldn't the VAT cash back be on the lower amount of 239.99, making it 204.25?


I've just checked the price and your headline price of 196.80 is actually incorrect.

£204.25 * 1.175 = £239.99

It should read £204.25

heh, you beat me to it by seconds

Original Poster

using what it says on Sony VAT Back page on amazon -

VAT Calculation--How to Work out Your SavingRetail Price ÷ 1.175 = NET … VAT Calculation--How to Work out Your SavingRetail Price ÷ 1.175 = NET PriceRetail Price - Net Price = VAT SavingFor example:£1000 ÷ 1.175 = £851.06£1000 - £851.06 = £148.94VAT back saving = £148.94


Retail price is 289.99
Net price thus is 289.99/1.175 = 246.80
VAT saving = 289.99 - 246.80 = 43.19

That means sony will mail you a cheque for 43.19
So the price you pay today is 289.99 - 50 amazon promo discount = 239.99
and then you'll get a cheque from sony for 43.19.
Overall price = 239.99 - 43.19 = 196.80

I seriously doubt they would pay the whole VAT (43.19) back on £289.99 as with the voucher the camcorder's retail price drops to £239.99, of which (35.74) is paid as VAT.
It is unlikely for them to pay £7.45 twice, once with the £50 voucher and second time with VAT return.

289.99 - 50 pounds amazon promotion = 239.99
Retail Price in this case is £239.99 (not £289.99)
Net Price is £204.25 + VAT (£35.74) = £239.99
- VAT back from sony (£35.74) = £204.25 with amazon free supersaver delivery.

I guess it still makes around £85.74 saving from the original price.

I would suggest checking T&C before buying as Sony's promotional camcorder is listed with the model number: HDRCX115EB/L/R.CEH and the one listed on Amazon is:HDRCX115EB.CEH. So if ( / = 'or' ) this model number should be accepted.

hah, too late with my post - started typing while back ago when there were no posts at all but than got distracted at work - damn work - sometimes they do really expect us to work over here - LOL - so when I finally got back to click send all of the sudden all those posts appeared.

They can only return the VAT you have paid and if you buying it with the discount of £50 obviously you don't pay VAT on the whole amount of 289.99 but 239.99 - simples!

I ordered one, told my parents, and they asked me to get one for them too !

Can't go wrong for a budget model from a major brand for £200. £499.99 on M&S Website.

I've had a sony HD hard disk/memory card camcorder (HDRsr120e for a over a year now, but tend to record most things in Standard Definition, because it's easier to burn onto DVD for watching on other media. Otherwise when I record in HD and need to make copies via pc onto DVD I have to convert into SD (using the basic PMB software that came with Sony camcorder).

Very impressed with video quality both in HD and SD - my still photo is 10.2Megapixel, ok quality but no where near a digital camera quality in my opinion. Oddly enough my Sony takes better photo's when in Video mode instead of photo mode especially night shots with built in flash

If my sony camcorder is anything to go by I would highly recommend them.Upaate camera review: http//ww…15e
Will be recommending this to family who are on lookout for new camcorder.

You surely will get the VAT back because Amazon cleary state the following for this product ...

" ... Get £50 off this Camcorder ... As well as Sony's great VAT Back offer you can get £50 off selected Sony Camcorders. Just use voucher code 'CT2D8P7C' at the checkout. Terms and conditions apply ... "

I don't even need a camcorder, and don't even really want one, yet I've just bought one. I hate this website. Heat added.

Ordered one. Many thanks. We had a very good sony one which was stolen on our last holiday and been agonising getting a replacement but at £204, I can hardly complain. Cheers

Anyone knows how can i get the vat back?

Same here! Hmmm... will check it out in store tomorrow to see what its like.

Does anyone know what (if anything) this loses out on by only being 1080i rather than 1080p? Am very tempted at this price...

Google is your friend, first one that popped up:
1080i vs p, many people that looking for a brand new HD TV(High-Definition TV) would be very interesting to know what they mean, which one is better?

Let me explain, 1080 means the video source resolutions is 1920 x 1080(horizontally 1920 pixels, vertically 1080 pixels).

i and p stand for two different scan way.

i is short for Interlaced Scan.

p is short for Progressive Scan.

First of first, I must state 1080i or 1080p property may apply on two things, one is the display equipment like plasma and LCD TV, or the video source like TV broadcast, DVD player, Playstation 3.

Technically 1080p is better than 1080i.

The concept of Interlaced Scan originated from the CRT TV. It displays the 1080i sources line by line in two passes. To be exact, odd numbered line by odd numbered line, then even by even. The scan speed is very quick which is done in less than 0.03 second, due to the image holding effect of human eye, we will still see a integrated image. While progressive scan only needs one pass to display all the lines which result in a sharper image, especially when you watch sport matches, action movie and other fast moving videos. Nowadays all HDTV in the market supports 1080p, actully the plasma TV and LCD TV doesn’t need to scan at all, every pixels on the screen emit lights at the exact same time. With such inherent property, HDTV is able to display 1080p video even the resolution of video source is 1080i by utilizing it’s built-in convey system.

So now we can stop discussing this question on HDTV level, instead we should refer 1080p vs. 1080i to the video source resolution, in other word, it is about what scan mode the HD camcorder use to shoot the video. I should make a note that the HDTV broadcast is using either 1080i or 720p for the sake of saving the bandwidth. Anyway you would watch the genuine 1080p video on Blue Ray DVDs and Playstation3 games, or filmed by an 1080p camcorder.

In conclusion, there is nonsense to compare 1080i and 1080p at display level or compare HDTV based on 1080i and 1080p, because 1080P is a build-in feature for most HDTV now, and you shouldn’t even worry too much about the resolution of video source, HDTV still can display 1080i source with 1080p resolution. So a 1080p vs 1080i comparison can only be made on video source level or a HD camcorder.

Cutting through the crap, less detail BUT more importantly, less storage space needed. If you shot in 1080p only you would need a bag full of memory!!! SkyHD is only 1080i and it looks good enough to me (_;)
