Sony HDR-MV1 review

 

The HDR-MV1 is a good choice for musicians looking to record performances for social media, but video quality could be better

Overall the sound recording capability is the HDR-MV1’s shining feature and its mobile app makes it a snap to share your recordings. Its video quality is average, however. If good audio quality is crucial for you then the HDR-MV1 is a good choice, but...

I have yet to use product fully yet. Not quite as simple to use as I had hoped but will persevere with it, once I can plan a recording session with my band.

Brilliant little camera

 

This is a clever little camera, it is so easy to use, once you know how. The viewing screen goes off when in the record mode but this in a way is an advantage so you know it's recording. Also the fact that it is not a touch screen means that you can't...

Super product

 

I've bought this video camera about 3 weeks ago. I've very much enjoyed the design. I wasn't able to take any shootings, until I've purchased a micro memory card. It is very basic, but a very useful camera, especially for musicians who would like to...
