Editor's Review

Sony's popular CX line continues to offer performance without a big bottom line in the CX290. We've reviewed some of Sony's 2013 offerings and were quite pleased, expect no less from the CX290. Features include 1080 60p recording, 8 GB embedded flash memory, 27x optical zoom, optical image stabilization and intelligent auto scene selection. The CX290 is one of Sony's more budget friendly options, but still includes a nice set of features and quality video for the price.
