Handycam DCR-SR85 60 GB HDD 25X Zoom Digital Camcorder - MSRP $599.99


this is a good product. HDD feature is very good as we can easily copy the movies to laptop.

Battery life is less, they should provide some more backup batteries.

Pretty Nice


I like this camera alot, love the fact that it has internal memory. No more looking for mini tapes,or trying to find one to tape over when we didn't have any new ones. I haven't transferred it to a dvd yet but it looks easy.

Easy to use, light weight

Battery does not last long, it does charge quickley though - about 1 hour and 1/2

Easy to use


I would recommend getting a back up battery, although the cost may be a bit of a deterrent to some. There are many useful accessories available from the manufacturer to further enhance your experience.

Easy to use right out of the box. I was able to get this up and running easily. The functions were easy to understand and use. I have only used the video, but have gotten some great pictures with it.

Supplied battery could last longer. I bought another longer-life battery to minimize down time and reduce the risk of missing out on some precious memories.

Fabulous camcorder!


I really cannot find anything wrong with this handy camcorder!

Battery could last a little longer but I have the power cord so as long as there is electricity nearby it's all good.
