      Ok so

      I may need your expert help.

      This was shot on an IPHONE with a Go Pro

      You dont have to watch it – its just for context.

      So then I bought a Sony CXR 650 Steady Shot for £380

      Since buying it 2 days later and my footage is worse than a go pro…

      State the obvious but what do I need to look for in a camcorder before It will shot crisp like an Iphone or a Go pro…

      I am stunned how bad this camera is.

      Happy to upload some raw footage if you like… But Ideally this will be going back and you will tell me what to buy instead 🙂

      I have it set to 50p HD Highest setting and have tried everything. This is shocking for a £400 camcorder….what am I missing?

      I can’t find the existence of the camcorder you mentioned, Sony CXR 650 Steady Shot. Was hoping to see the camera’s video specs.

      I think the OP is referring to the CXR 550?
