Customers Report Great Product Quality

13 people wrote in their reviews that it was good quality.

  • Well it takes good quality videos and the sound amplifiers are good…
  • The audio channel separation is very high quality…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Minor wobbles and trembles are ironed out so if you don't have a hugely steady hand you won't get sea sick from watching your videos back and this feature alone justifies it's high price tag Image quality is excellent…
    AndyBSG (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Very good image quality when using indoors under artificial normal household lights…
    Stuart (Amazon) - November 2015
  • Bare in mind we are talking about a mid range consumer product and as such most non professionals will find the quality is more than acceptable…
    Stuart (Amazon) - November 2015
  • It's fair to say that these stills are pretty poor quality compared to a dedicated digital camera…
    Jago Wells (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Excellent quality…
    Mike (Amazon) - May 2016
  • Brilliant video quality…
  • Nice camcorder with good quality footage and easy to use…
    Dizzy Rascal (Amazon) - November 2015
  • So far it's been very simple to use and really pleased with the quality of footage…

Users Report a Good Quality Lens

Two owners who reviewed the product agreed that it had a good zoom.

  • Minor wobbles and trembles are ironed out so if you don't have a hugely steady hand you won't get sea sick from watching your videos back and this feature alone justifies it's high price tag Image quality is excellent and there is very little blurring unless you are making very fast and erratic movements with a very good and smooth zoom function that is simple to use…
    AndyBSG (Amazon) - February 2015
  • The optical stabilisation is superb…
  • It works well and provides nice zoom - some might say a bit slow.

  • So versatile - yet small and compact will put it to the test on next holiday thanks for quick service…
  • Compact and easy to handle…
  • Great price, very neat & compact…
    DM (Amazon) - March 2016
  • It fit's comfortably in one hand and isn't too heavy and it seems of quite high quality although the little strap that goes round your hand could do with being a bit bigger…
  • Also it has quite a narrow viewing angle and is a fairly low resolution so you wouldn't want to be using it for playback too much…
  • In addition, if you really want a compact camcorder, there are much cheaper options than this one which will offer similar or better performance…
    CJ (Amazon) - March 2015
  • The device is small and light, so its easy to carry around…
    CJ (Amazon) - March 2015

Users Report Great Technical Features

Four people who reviewed it thought it had good features.

  • The price is justified, as it has the features you'd expect from a camera costing up to £600…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Nice features…
  • The price is justified, as it has the features you'd expect from a camera costing up to…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Not helped by the fiddly screen, which isn't always terribly responsive and features icons small enough to make using them a bit of a challenge…
    CJ (Amazon) - March 2015

Customers Report it is Easy to Use

Five people thought the Sony HDR-PJ620 was easy to use and three customers who purchased it concluded that it was easy to use the menus.

  • The screen and menus are very easy to navigate…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • Minor wobbles and trembles are ironed out so if you don't have a hugely steady hand you won't get sea sick from watching your videos back and this feature alone justifies it's high price tag Image quality is excellent and there is very little blurring unless you are making very fast and erratic movements with a very good and smooth zoom function that is simple to use…

    Omar Masood (Amazon) - October 2015
  • The software that comes with the unit is not intuitive though…
    Omar Masood (Amazon) - October 2015
  • This is not good to use…

Customers Report a Good Screen / Viewfinder

Three owners concluded that it had a good screen.

  • Touch screen colour is vivid…
    Bob Sherunkle (Amazon) - February 2015
  • It was an ex display camera at only £249.00…
    Dizzy Rascal (Amazon) - November 2015
  • A lot of the buttons are a little too small and the touch screen doesn't seem particularly responsive with it sometimes taking a couple of finger stabs at the screen to press the setting you want…
  • The "touch screen" - Well it isn't - it's a "press hard screen"…
  • From turning on (by flicking out the screen) to recording is lightning quick, though there is some slowdown when the memory card gets a bit full…
  • Not helped by the fiddly screen, which isn't always terribly responsive…
