I love this Sony HD --

 

The stabilizer is the best I have used in this generation of smaller cameras. The auto features are intuitive and do most of the best adjustments automatically. Transfer features are easy to set up and use. Video length and Battery life are very good.

Feature packed, great picture, love it
