Sony Handycam DCR-SR15

 

Very easy camrea to use, Plenty storage space with 80GB. Havent had to used SD card yet. Easy to upload to pc to Facebook,flicker,etc. Built in light for night time use.

The screen is hard to see when very bright sun behind you.. . it be nice to have a viewfinder rather a lcd screen.. that's the only bad point. "nd bad point the photos are low resolution. its fine as a video camrea.

The device is small and easy to get going, open the cover, and press the record button to start shooting. Downloading the recorded video is easy to with CD software and it will create menu type chapters for your DVD finish look. Comes with 80GB...

Comes with Camera built in so can take shots. although the resolution is not that good. Video camera I found is what its best at doing. Video does not have HD. although you would know that if choosing this camera. :)

Nice and light and easy to handle.

Screen difficult to see in bright light and almost impossible in sunlight. No neck cord provided so you have to keep putting back into a bag when not in use. no external mic. socket

clear instant picture & easy to use easy to transmit film to Laptop for storage.

Difficulty in centralising picture in frame with only a small LCD screen that can be tilted to an angle as I am used to using an older 'Sony' camers where one coulld see what you wanted to film, and centralise it through an eyecup veiw finder.

High Magnification Ok at close range Convenient to use

Poor quality at distant high magnification at distance Almost impossible to hold as shown in manual with my small hands and still operate all the controls (Common fault with most camcorders) No automatic shutter cover closure
