Sony Handycam DCR-SR100


There is a bewildering array of camcorder formats on the market at present, ranging from the stalwart tape-based Mini DV right through to flash-based ...

Good quality video and still pictures, easy to use software, lots of features

Large frame, slightly awkward to hold, clunky interface

The Sony DCR-SR100 is one of the first hard disk based camcorders on the market, and demonstrates why the technology is here to stay.

Sony Handycam DCR-SR100


For those who want to do away with tape and don't want to worry about manual controls, this might just be the easiest HDD camcorder available -- but check it works with your computer first!

Seven hours of recording storage ; Drop sensor ; Empty\" feature for clearing the hard drive ; Carl Zeiss lens ; Nice touchscreen

All manual settings are menu driven ; Check computer operating system compatibility ; No external battery charger

This reviewer dislikes Sony's accessory shoes, which are sunken, with a cover attached by the weakest of plastic straps, destined to break or at least rub against a microphone. Perhaps there's the expectation that most consumers will rarely use...
