Sony HDR-CX150 - Unbox

Gear: Sony HDR-CX150.

I have been using a Flip Ultra HD and have recorded lot's of videos for various websites.  However it's time to upgrade to a camera that can do close ups.  The Ultra HD is horrible at close up and is best at a good distance and when the camera isn't moving.  The Sony HDR-CX150 seemed like a good deal and when I tested close ups it was fantastic.

What I like:
  • Great lens
  • Great optical zoom
  • Video out ports (RCA, mini HDMI)
  • USB Interface - no drivers were needed
  • SD Cards + Memory Sticks is a good deal.  Thank you Sony for coming to your senses
  • Small form factor
  • Swappable battery

What I don't like:
  • Not easy to erase video clips - there's so many steps to take
  • No external microphone in
  • Default colors are a little blue - you can probably change it
  • No remote

There are pros and cons but the picture quality and zoom is what I needed and the CX150 delivers.  Tune in later and check some pictures and videos recorded with the CX150.
