Sony Handycam HDR-XR155E review

 

With great picture quality and a healthy amount of on-board storage for a reasonable price, the Sony Handycam HDR-XR155E is a smart choice for anyone planning to use their camcorder often. Don't expect great results on the photo side, though.

Plenty of storage space ; Easy to use ; Excellent quality video ; Long (25x) zoom ; Good value

A little on the heavy side for its size ; Slightly awkward to hold ; Not everyone will need the large amount of storage ; Mediocre photo performance

Barring a couple of minor points, we would happily recommend the Sony Handycam HDR-XR155E. It's compact, crammed full of useful features and, above all, remarkably easy to achieve great results with. Whether you opt for this over a memory-card-only...

Sony HDR-XR155E

 

Not the absolute latest Camcorder from Sony, but this current version will do everything that most will want. A hard disc to record to, great video in full HD and the ability to take still images at a size that can be reproduced at A4.

Doing my Internet searches found the Sony HDR-XR155E at a best price of £437.70 from the first link below

Sony HDR-XR155 High Definition Camcorder

 

When I went to buy this camcorder, I thought about larger space, high definition and easy to use. In this camcorder, Sony has come with a large internal HDD memory, high definition and great auto mode.

Internal HDD, Lightweight, Great Auto Mode, High resolution, Easy to Use, Good Value

Slightly difficult to handle, Moderate quality photo performance, Not for manual user

Sony HDR-XR155 High Definition Camcorder

 

This is a definate buy, if you are considering either changing or buying a HD Camcorder. The camcorder is very light & small considering it has 120GB Storage space.

Brilliant Quality, very light weight and small

Shutter does not shut & open automatically
