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

I think the HDMI lead should have been included and a wrist strap or case to put it in.
