Did this video help you?

Kaneco: Can you preview what you're filming (without recording) on your computer like, for example, use it as a webcam, plugged in through USB or something? 

Marcos Cápula: Hi, Record stereo or mono?

Kodie Russell: so it DOES record at 60 fps? i dont know what NTSC is...

Danilo Tanghero: Is it real that recorded video from CX220E are splitted each 2 gb so after 17 minutes and 13 seconds ?

Nhan Co: Hi, can you please tell me which software editor you used? Is there a build in editor? I use Window Maker and Camtasia Studio 8 but my video turns out a "black screen" instead. Everything is turning out right except the screen. We cannot see the screen at all (it's a black screen).

CeruleanSage: Great review. Very concise and helpful.

Jackmandate: Good review and well edited. I like the way you pointed out both the good & bad points.

alferz479: MAGNIFIC VIDEO.THANK

MCMLXXXVII: NICE

KrunchyMunch: is this the large one or small?

TechFreakTv13: looks like a really good camcorder great quality cool video

Stefanos Pleros: over all seems like a preety decent camera

Luis García: Good Video. =') With which you exported the video codec?

anna saunders: Very useful, concise information, thanks.

TwoDwarf Hamsters: Loooove it

amusement420: That's a good way to do it. I put a wide anlge barrel distortion test on my channel recently. The camera says "Wide" on the lens. It's 28mm. The auto focus makes a constant chirping noise in a quiet room. If I shoot collectibles you can hear it in the video. The 27x optical zoom is very nice. The 32x extended is OK. The zoom lever is smooth and easy to handle. The strap is comfortable. The Carl Zeiss lens is nice. The detail and sharpness are great. It exhibits no chromatic abberration (purple fringing around objects) The joystick is solid but menus tricky to navigate. The mic has a wind noise reduction setting. It fits in the palm of your hand. It has no AC adapter. The deal breaker was the chirping noise. So I ended up with the Canon VIXIA HF R400. I plan to put footage up. I also tried the Samsung HMX-F90. Piece of junk. chromatic abberration. you can hear the zooom lever like C-3PO. Fragile joystick. but easy menu to navigate. This is a good camera for the end of the year price. I got it for $129 Black Friday.

Francesca dance: OMG thanks so much!! This helped A LOT!!

LyKhAn: I have d exact same camera pls wat are the settings for a HD render, when I record it's too light and the video isn't clear

Patricia Paris: Thank you so much for doing this!

Amm Toha: i have camcorder HDR cx220 during recording movies most of the shoots became photos. how i fix it?

flatcat19dx: Can you ajust the frame rate on it? Like, can I shoot at 24fps or something?

gofockyourself123: video doesn't look sharp. These days, regular photo cameras take sharper video than cheap camcorders.

franco bluto: very helpful review well done I'm looking to gift one for xmas 

James Conrad: Does the camcorder have an adjustable shutter speed?

no noi: i think is not good ty

dominicanbeauty34: Aflac I thought you were in the hospital?

dominicanbeauty34: Hw does it do in low light? And does it have a flash of some sort?

KOALA ROCKERO: very nice review old man!!, thanks.

amusement420: Btw the ducks look good! : It's winter so there's not lot of fun stuff to shoot. I compiled my observations uploading SONY Pros & Cons and “SONY HDR-CX220 vs Canon HF R400 Video Comparisons.” SONY is brighter, sharper detail, cooler color. The Canon is smoother detail, natural indoor color, but yellowish outdoor color cast. Both nice comparable low-ends. The quick 2 min video comparison’s worth a look if any one’s interested in either cam. I took a look at both because Black Friday I couldn't decide. I'll let you be the judge though :

twitchster77: Got a couple of these for Christmas (for my mom and my sister) for just $128 each! :D

letzUploadit: just need to know that if u use the mp4 format or the other one wich makes really big files?...wich one is better,,, anyone???

Ushie Mayna: I got mine for $189. Great deal, I think. Look at some of the night time videos I took of fireworks displays I made. Despite the VERY bright ligh; all is quite sharp.

YouonPictures: Oh yes.

rockero1688: make a tutorial ,how you render for this good quality please :)

rockerofilms: the 60p is good? hoy this video?

cruz griffin: do you know if you can hook a mic to it

VreemdeFogel92: Hey, nice video, klnow almost everything i need to know and nice scenery to be filming. Could you tell me the output format of the video?

filthyvenice: At the end of the video it is stated that there is no external mic jack.

Happy Gore: That's not what I was asking--I'm new to using a camera and I was wondering if there was a way to use an external device to record audio while I film with this camera. I'm on a budget.

Leon: for youtube the phone camera is good? But its a good camcorder for outside too.. If you record videos for traveling and such this can be good.

Victor from Philadelphia: what is the battery life?

Pascu Bogdan: What memory card you use, what class 4,6,10?

fktcd: Was it pre-owned? Did it come with a memory card?

Chloe Farquharson: Thanks for the review!

Chernique Kiara: Would you recommend this camera to someone who makes youtube videos mostly indoors with natural lighting and just wants something better than a phone camera. .?

Chase Rayfield: nope.. I just bought one anyway though :)

gh68fbn: Hi PEWTASTIC! I was thinking about if this would be a good camera for indoor shoots, because I want to use it for some green screen projects! Is that possible?? :)

Daniel trussell: good review and it reinforced my plan to purchase this product

rockero1688: thanks! i have a cx 220 too XD y render bad jeje xs

Grey Cloud Studios: settings?

Arctic Exposure: @TK42138 I hope so too =) Will do a proper test of everything when the engine is swapped to see how the rest of the car is. It looks good, and was used until it was parked due to the oil leak in the engine, so hopefully it will be ok :) I'll be fixing it slowly but surely if not though, I really like that car :)
