Sony Handycam DCR-HC37E

 

NICE ITEM, EASY TO USE AFTER A WHILE. ALTHOUGH IT HAS A USB PORT YOU HAVE TO USE A FIREWIRE TO CONNECT TO YOUR PC IF YOU WANT TO DOWNLOAD FROM THE CAMCORDER. NIGHT SHOOTING MODE IS A GREAT IDEA ALSO.

great battery life very simple to use

It would be good to have a fade button which would stay on rather than have to use every time to turn on or shut down The zoom button would be easier to use if it was a pivotted type rather than rocker. This would give more control.

Sony DCR-HC37

 

Ease of use. I bought this camcorder for my 8 year old son and he picked it up, switched it on and used it straight away.

No USB connection. It has a mini USB port but there are no drivers available for it? Firewire is fine if your computer has a firewire port to connect to!
