Sony Handycam HDR-CX700V
Released March, 2011
The Pros:Compact and lightweight, comfortable and easy to carry around. Stabilization works well, both photos and video seem unaffected by normal hand shake. Low light shooting is better than most, everything comes in sharp.
The Cons:Menus seem to have the most useful options deeply nested.

As a premium-grade unit, the device uses a wide angle up to 26.3mm and an enhanced sensor to produce full 1080p high-definition video at 60fps for fluid-like fast motion without the field-ripping like in 60i. There’s also a large 3” LCD display that can conveniently be flipped out. Plus the unit is loaded with adjustment options like tracking focus, iAuto, and optical image stabilization.
