Review 1 for Sony Handycam HDR-CX190 Flash Memory Camcorder w/ 25x Optical Zoom, 2.7" LCD, Image Stabilization

Great camera

So far the picture quality has been great, even when playing the videos and displaying the pictures our our 32 inch TV. We have mostly used it to video our parrots and my grandchild, which are very active most of the time. The ability to capture a still shot from a video is what we needed because our parrots are always on the move.
It is difficult to handle if you have large hands because the camera is so small.

Good quality picture in low price & BAD SOFTWARE

I tried so many camcoder. Among them picture quality of this is good or nice. Uptill now I had tried only its STD. features. It picture quality is better than older same price camcoder. Only downside is it does not have touchscreen. Rest every thing looks good to me.
I am giving only 4 star rating b/c of its SOFTWARE - It comes with onboard PlayMemory Home software which after installing to your computer requires Online update (Install Expanded Features) to use certain feature like Edit, Create disk... etc. But uptill now that update is NO where to found on their entire website. I called tech. support about this they told me that update was pulled out from their website Reason- unknown, when it gone be available again - UNKNOWN... So without that update it is like taking picture and storing in computer wating for update to release and available to download which may be available after - 1HR, 1day or 1year Uncertain....... You might think why I am this much concern about this software b/c without that update you can do NOTHING... I wish they had at least supplied basic CD with their product instead of this very hard to find online update b/c not everyone has Internet facility.... So Good camcoder with bad software..

I purchased this camcorder to produce instructional training videos. Thus far it has been a great tool and the videos have turned out wonderful. I would recommend the purchase of extra batteries if you intend to record for extended periods of time.

I can't really rate this product, it's a gift for someone. However, I do have a similar version (just a little older), and I love it!
