Reliable and quite simple to operate. Easy to switch between record and review.

Sony DCR-HC22

 

the camcorder is a sophisticated and very advanced piece of equipment but the programing and setup of its functions make it as simple to use as a car steering wheel. its also fairly durable for a camcorder...

The touch screen is incredibly handy and easy to use. Auto-focus is faultless. An excellent camcorder.

Standard battery is okay. A second battery is a must have.
