Total score ?
(maximal 570)
Pros + very sharp under good lighting
Cons - lowlight
- no manual aperture control
Conclusion Compared to the SR11 this cheaper modell has a smaller hard disk, no control ring, a less sharp display, no view-finder a a smaller image sensor resulting in worse lowlight pictures.Many users will prefer paying additional 300 EuroMovie makers will look for manual aperture-control - which is only to be found in competing models.Holiday videomakers who trust automatic controls and don´t want to shoot in the dark will be satistied with good image quality for a good price.
