The CX360V sits at the lower end of Sony's pro-sumer camcorder lineup. It's a small step up from the entry-level Handycams. The sensor is the same size as the CX160, for example, but the feature set is richer, complete with the film-like 24fps-capture mode, the built-in GPS receiver for geo-tagging, and a generous 32GB flash memory. It's kind of an awkward middle-ground, so we'd probably recommend stepping up a bit to the CX560V, or dropping back to the CX160.
