Expert review by:

Sony DCR-SR57E Camcorder


The Sony DCR-SR57E does come with a huge hard drive, this has the ability to store up to 61 hours of video, being 80GB in size really does mean that it will be very difficult to completely fill this camcorder full of video. If you do, you will always...

About the software notice, this is not so. It is not possible to use this camera on a mac computer. Sony does have software for the mac but this camera is not supported in this software.
