Sony HDR-CX190 camcorder review - Sony HDR-CX190 is one of the cheapest HD camcorders offered by Sony and in this respect you can't expect the best possible quality from this handycam.
One of the big advantages of the HDR-CX190 Handycam camcorder is its price but it also has some other good features. It can record good quality videos in Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution and make 5.3MP still images.
The good quality of the videos is thanks to the back illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor which really makes the difference between this and other affordable Full HD camcorders. This sensor does a great job when recording videos in low light conditions providing very low levels of noise in the picture.
Of course you have plenty of different shooting modes in the Sony HDR-CX190 and also a 25x optical zoom available.
The image stabilization in the HDR-CX190 is far from perfect. The 3-way shake cancelling technology embedded in this camcorder works even when zooming so this is one of the nice features when talking about digital image stabilization in the Sony HDR-CX190 camcorder.
The Sony HDR-CX190 is good low end Full HD camcorder which is good enough for making some good quality videos during the holiday and it will definitely suit most not amateur camcorder enthusiasts and other consumers with lower expectations. Of course don't be fooled by all the high-tech stickers that cover this camcorder, it is far from the best camcorders in this class but it is one of cheapest at a price of just £120 which is a big advantage.
