sony cx 210 Can't Post

Does anyone on here know anything about this camera? My guess is just an updated version of the 110 specs are close to the same. From what i can see.
Im just looking for some input to see if this camera is a good option.
Thanks

Did you read the sticky FAQ in this forum?

Do that first, then go look up what kind of image stabilisation both cameras have.

by the specs both use Electronic (Steady Shot with Active Mode) image stabilization.
Now with that being said, can someone look into the differences and give some feedback on the 210. From everything i can see it looks like just a newer version of the 110. But as i said before i dont know crap about the electronics behind it all.

LOL I could've sworn I read Optical stabilisation for the CX210.

Since it's sony CX series camera, with EIS, it should be fine for skydiving.
2 other things to look out for are the ability to screw on a wide angle lens, and the location of the cardreader on the camera body, in relation to how you're going to mount the camera.

You should also check with Trunk to see if the Hypeye will work with it. The CX160 requires a special version of Hypeye.

After some more research from hypoxic
CX130, CX160, CX190, CX200, CX210, ... If the camera was made in 2011 or 2012 you will need this version of the HYPEYE!

unable to use wide angle lens without some modification.
