Sony HDR GW55 Digital Video Review (Bg)

1 Reason For

Good Brand

We checked 3,510 owner and expert reviews for Sony camcorders and found that on average Sony has good ratings compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Sony has good ratings specifically within its video cameras range.

9 Reasons Against

Not Full HD

Most video cameras that were released more than two years ago are not Full HD. The Sony HDR-GW55 is no exception to this as it too is not Full HD.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

Like most of the other camcorders of this age and type, the HDR-GW55 does not have an image stabiliser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

The Sony HDR-GW55 does not have an HDMI port. Most of the other video cameras that were released more than two years ago also do not have an HDMI port.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

The HDR-GW55 does not have an interchangeable lens, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other similar spec video cameras that are a comparable age to the HDR-GW55 also do not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The HDR-GW55 does not have a built-in display. Most of the other comparable spec camcorders that have been on the market for a similar time to the HDR-GW55 do have a built-in display.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

The Sony HDR-GW55 is not waterproof. Most of the other camcorders that have been around for a similar time to the HDR-GW55 are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other video cameras of this type and age, the HDR-GW55 does not have a night mode.

We think you might also be interested in alternative camcorders which also have a night mode including the Transcend DrivePro 200 (£77.86), or the HP F-500 (£86.26) which is also higher rated.

Not 3D Compatible

Most similar spec video cameras that were launched around the same time as the HDR-GW55 are not 3D compatible. The HDR-GW55 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Camcorders which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the Sony HDR-TD20VE (£999.00).

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

The Sony HDR-GW55 does not have a built-in projector, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other video cameras that were launched around the same time as the HDR-GW55 also do not have a built-in projector.

We think you might also be interested in alternative video cameras which also have a built-in projector including the Sony HDR-PJ420 (£499.99).
