1 Reason For

Sony Has Good Reviews for Its Video Cameras

On average Sony camcorders have good ratings compared to other brands as do all camcorders manufactured by Sony.

9 Reasons Against

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Sony HDR-GW55 does not have an image stabilizer. Most of the other camcorders of a similar age and type to the HDR-GW55 also do not have an image stabilizer.

We compared all the other camcorders which also have an image stabilizer to this video camera and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an HDMI

The HDR-GW55 does not have an HDMI. Most of the other video cameras of this age and type also do not have an HDMI.

Alternative camcorders which also have an HDMI that you might also want to consider include the Sony HDR-CX730E.

Not Full HD

Like most of the other camcorders that are a comparable age to the HDR-GW55, the Sony HDR-GW55 is not Full HD.

Video cameras which are Full HD that might be worth looking at include the Sony HDR-CX730E which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most camcorders that have been on the market for more than two years do not have an interchangeable lens. The Sony HDR-GW55 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Display

The HDR-GW55 does not have a built-in display, unlike most of the other similar spec video cameras that have been around for around the same time as the HDR-GW55.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with a built-in display and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Not Waterproof

Most camcorders of this age and type are not waterproof. The HDR-GW55 is no exception to this as it too is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

Like most of the other camcorders of this spec and age, the HDR-GW55 is not 3D.

Camcorders which are 3D that might be worth looking at include the Sony HDR-TD20VE which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The HDR-GW55 does not have a night mode. Most of the other video cameras of a similar type and age to the HDR-GW55 also do not have a night mode.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with a night mode and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E, or the HP F-500 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

The HDR-GW55 does not have a built-in projector, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other comparable spec video cameras that have been available for a similar time to the HDR-GW55 also do not have a built-in projector.

It is worth also looking at other camcorders which also have a built-in projector including the HDR-PJ420E (£499.99), or the HDR-PJ820 (£659.99) both from Sony.
