9 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

This video camera received a rating of 60% from expert review website PC Advisor.co.uk. This puts this Sony video camera in the bottom 6% of all the big total megapixels video cameras that have been on the market for more than two years when ranked by average expert review score.

Not Full HD

The MHS-TS10 is not Full HD, although this is within the context that most of the other big total megapixels video cameras that are a similar age to the MHS-TS10 are also not Full HD.

If you would prefer a camcorder that is Full HD then you might also want to look at the HDR-PJ580E[pl_409855_price], the NEX-VG20[pl_1137845_price], or the HDR-AS15[pl_1456659_price] all from Sony.

The MHS-TS10 does not have an interchangeable lens, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other camcorders of this age and type also do not have an interchangeable lens.

Other camcorders which also have an interchangeable lens that you might also want to consider include the NEX-VG20[pl_1137845_price], the NEX-EA50[pl_1464417_price], or the NEX-VG30[pl_1543923_price] all from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Digital Zoom

Big total megapixels video cameras that are a comparable age to the MHS-TS10 have digital zooms of between 2x and 1,500x. At only 4 times zoom factor, the Sony MHS-TS10 has a quite small digital zoom compared to most of the other big total megapixels video cameras that were launched around the same time as the MHS-TS10.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 4x (digital) camcorders currently available including the easypix DVC5127 Trip[plb_296709_price] which has better reviews.

If you want a video camera with a bigger digital zoom then you might also want to consider the HC-X1000[pl_2561788_price] (10x), the HC-X920[pl_1974849_price] (40x), or the HC-X929[pl_1902118_price] (40x) all from Panasonic which also has a higher rating.
