  • CX900 Well Worth The Price

  • May 31, 2014
  • By: Fivepin

I purchased this camcorder having been a long time sony and canon shooter. Back in 2008 I purchased the HDR SR11 and loved it, and proceeded to use it for 3 years...I then moved to the HDR CX700 and was very disappointed. The cx700 was not sharp, had very bad chromatic aberration and a limited zoom. I used that camera for about a year before it sat on my shelf collecting dust as I also own the A77 and A99. Now 2014 I wanted a new camcorder that could record video that could be intercut with my DSLR's. I was very wary of the CX900 because of my experience with the 700. I read every thing I could find online and decided to pull the trigger. THIS CAMERA IS AMAZING. Very sharp zeis lens. Large sensor which takes photos that are 80% quality of my high end DSLR's. The video footage matched my DSLR footage very closely. You can achieve great DOF because of the large sensor. Not as much as a DSLR. But more than any previous camcorder. Images and video are noise free up to 24 db gain and the clear image zoom is a winner. You will have a slight drop in quality after about 18 x...but the footage is still sharper than from my CX700. Best of all no chromatic aberration anywhere. My only complaint with the camera is the size. It is a big camcorder and the rocker zoom switch is too far back for my liking. The focus enlargement button is not reachable with your right hand, you have to reach around with your left - bad placement. Small nits. As a side note the night shot on this camera is way improved too. The cx700 could only see about 10 feet. This camera goes at least 30. This is a solid product and I am a happy Sony Camcorder owner once again!
