Sony DCR-SR42E

 

The Sony DCR-SR42E is an affordably priced hard disk-based handycam, offering 30GB of video storage for under $1000. Although budget shoppers are sure...

Small and attractive design, 30GB hard drive, very user-friendly, 40x optical zoom

Only 0.68 megapixels, camera is too light, poor stills mode

If you are willing to forgive the sub par visuals, the DCR-SR42E is a pretty decent camera; especially for inexperienced users. However, there are plenty of similarly priced non-HDD cameras on the market that will give you a superior performance.

EASY TO USE, great video quality, software easy to install and use.

Battery a bit hard to put on, battery life is short, Spare batteries are spendy.

Product Specifications

Stop stopping. None of us likes to switch tapes in the middle of a shoot, or waste time rewinding and capturing. That's why the DCR-SR42 Handycam camcorder contains a 30GB built-in hard disk drive (HDD) storage and allows you to capture up to 20 hours of recording time (LP) so you don't need to mess around with tapes. A brilliant 2.5" Touch Panel LCD display keeps the controls at your fingertips while a 40x optical/2000x digital zoom makes sure you catch all the detail. And when it comes time to share your memories, it couldn't be easier with the one touch disc burn capability and the Memory Stick Duo media slot. The DCR-SR42 puts the simplicity back into shooting and sharing your videos. +PLUS+ ACCESSORY KIT: - Lithium Ion Battery - Camcorder Case - 46-inch Tripod - Cleaning Kit - LCD Screen Protector
