We bought this video camera in 2017 and have been very happy with it. Prior to owning this camera we tried capturing our video footage with the video function of regular cameras, or our iPhones. Regular cameras can be very limiting and frustrating to work with for video footage. This CX900 has been amazing for us. It is super easy to use and produces great quality content. We love that the screen can flip around so that we are sure we have the shot set up right. We also love how smart the automatic functions are to adapt for light.
If you are a more advanced camera operator, this camera does have significant adjustability. Our friends Tom and Cait Morton from Mortons on the move are far more advanced camera operators and have tried many of the advanced features and have been happy with performance, especially for the price of this camera.
It is lightweight and portable, and we have mounted an extra microphone for better audio quality. We still use other cameras for footage when this camera is not available, but most of our video footage is filmed with this camera now days.
