I bought the camera for £300 and have claimed £40 from Sony – Thus bringing it down to £260 once I get my cheque in the post from Sony!
I also have purchased an additional battery, which will come in useful when I want to take more shots/videos
I bought the SD card + the extra battery + a LCD protection + case for a combo deal @ £49 @ Jessops :D!
Was cheaper than any internet price I found at the time!
I also got a 3 year additional cover for the camera, protecting it from accidental damage too – which cost another £49.
So all together I paid £398 – £40 (back from Sony) = £358 for the whole package.
I find this camera very nice indeed, especially in the video capturing department! In the still shots, I found it a little less impressive, but lovely nonetheless.
I hope this review touches upon anything you need to know about the camera before you buy it.
My overall rating for the camera would be 8/10
Losing out on: (cons)
-Charging/accessories which came with the camera
-Lack of support for the AVCHD file MTS clips
-Movie button a little too concealed for my liking
-Scroll wheel at top hard to change preset
-Picture quality nice, but not that impressive vs. My old DSCW300
Enjoy the guide!
