Sony Handycam DCR-SR50: Great for weddings / parties / track days

Great value for money, but honestly, try before you buy. I went to a High street shop, tested it out, and then bought online for cheap. Good camera, and i am more than happy with it.

Battery life isn't great at about 1.5hours, but you can buy a better one for around £50.Still / picture quality isn't great, BUT, i didn't buy it for this feature as i have a 8.2MP camera anyway.

Sony DCR-SR50E

 

Weight, Ease of Use, Ablilty to review video immediately, no searching for content by means of cue and review...

Lacks the ability to convert high quality video down to standard quality which effectivly means that you cannot get about an hour of HQ onto a standard DVD
