Sony Handycam HDR-CX155E

 

Compact, great zoom. Also the software lets you easily upload films to Youtube.

Sony Handycam HDR-CX155E

 

Good solid build quality, very compact, fits into your pocket nicely (not jeans of course), good internal memory and the facility to add additional memory (SD card), great zoom, touch screen is neat, still photograph quality is very good

The hand strap may be better suited higher up the side of the camera so the camera does not automatically lean to the left. Purchased the camera for a family holiday to Disney in June 2010 I was a bit disappointed in the quality of photographs and...
