Sony DCR-SX53E

 

Quite impressed, easily carried, good quality pictures, product is of sturdy materials, controls are positive, and good sound collection. My first camcorder so not an expert, but I do like this product.

Smaller fingers would be an advantage, but getting easier each time it's used.
