Now you can experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. This Handycam is easy to use and control with its very user friendly and simple controls. The ExmorR CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

This excellent video capability comes at an amazing price, and with a flexible storage capacity that depends on the user.
Some reviewers do not like the fact the videos can only be played back using Sony Memories software. This locks users to a proprietary software. Also the camcorder can only be charged with the battery inside the camera.
