well its not HD so thats one thing. it says 720p but then on the sony site it says Video Resolution : 720x480/60i so that would be 480i which isnt too hot. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&langId=-1&productId=8198552921666294285#specifications
I guess if your looking in that price range you could go for something like this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/671771-REG/Sanyo_VPC_SH1BK_VPC_SH1_Dual_Camera_Black.html
and its 1080i so already you have way better resolution.
