    Rediscovering Photography Yet Again

    I was using point-and-shoots to take great pictures and thought that everything was cool. I tried a Canon (with AA-batteries) and the power management drove me insane (no meter, heavy weight). I got this Sony for Christmas and it changed my world. (a) fantastic photos by candlelight. No need for the flash. No motion blur. It’s just amazing. (b) excellent automatic mode selection. From macro to nighttime portrait, it has always chosen right. (c) very good power managment. There’s a battery meter and long-lasting batteries. Since batteries are the new film, having them out is a problem. This is not. (d) standard filter thread. I put on a skylight filter the day I got it, and dropped it the next day, destroying the filter instead of the $400 lens. (e) great - and I mean great - v

    Excellent camcorder little expensive

    After starting off with VX 20 camera which did not do is it intended we decided to buy the HFS 200.

Since it can record a native 24, it occurred to me that I might be able to record films from my collection, finally in high definition.

    one of the best value camera around

    I agree with all the other positive reviews! I bought this for my wife, it was really easy to use, she was taking great pictures within minutes of opening the box. She even managed to figure out the basics without reading the manual! The 8x optical zoom is better than any other compact this size and price and was the main reason I went for this model. I dialled resolution down to 5MP and it ‘crops’ out the unused pixels to get a FOV equivalent to ~13x zoom. The added focal length really makes this camera more versatile than others IMO. Video is a bonus (and pretty good quality in daylight) but probably wont get much use. Its really an auto-only camera, there are minimal manual settings but users of this camera wont want them anyway. Speed and photo/build quality wise its no mat
