Sony Handycam DCR-SR38

 

I use DSLRs normely I bought this digycam to try out instead buying the higher value sony camcorders and I find it does everthing i expected with good quality results, And I wiil buy one of the larger ones soon.

needs a grip of some sort for those of us with larger hands, I would rather have knobs and dials instead of touch screen.

Very easy to use and quick to transer files to the PC. Compact and lightweight with a smooth responsive zoom.

Artificial light conditions produce yellowish results.
