10 Reasons Against

Poor Expert Reviews

Video camera expert review website PC Advisor.co.uk scored this video camera 60 out of 100. This means that experts really don't rate this Sony video camera very highly.

Quite Small Optical Zoom

The average optical zoom of video cameras of this spec and age is 14x. The optical zoom of the MHS-TS10 of only 1 times zoom factor is one of the smallest amongst camcorders of a similar spec and age to the MHS-TS10.

If this big sensor size camcorder optical zoom is too small for you then you might also want to look at the HX-DC1 (£24.99) (5x and higher rated), the HX-DC2 (5x and higher rated), or the HX-WA3 (5x and higher rated) all from Panasonic.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Like most of the other camcorders that came out more than two years ago, the MHS-TS10 does not have an interchangeable lens.

There are a number of alternative camcorders which also have an interchangeable lens that you might want to consider including the NEX-VG20, the NEX-EA50, or the HDR-PJ810 all from Sony which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Very Small Digital Zoom

The MHS-TS10 has one of the smaller digital zooms (only 4 times zoom factor) amongst video cameras of this age. Similar spec video cameras that have been on the market for more than two years have digital zooms of between 2x and 1,500x.

We compared all the other 4x (digital) camcorders to this camcorder and we think the easypix DVC5127 Trip (£55.39) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this Sony video camera digital zoom is too small for you then you might want to consider the HC-X1000 (£1,699.00) (10x), the HC-X920 (£599.00) (40x), or the HC-X929 (40x) all from Panasonic which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

The MHS-TS10 does not have a built-in projector. Most of the other camcorders of a similar spec and age to the MHS-TS10 also do not have a built-in projector.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with a built-in projector and we think the HDR-PJ580, the HDR-PJ650, or the HDR-PJ810 all from Sony is also worth considering.
