Sony Handycam DCR-SX33E

I’m only having a hard time looking for a handycam case here due to it’s small size. It would have been great if the package came with other accessories. And one more thing also, when I tried to plug it on a old model Sony TV, no picture or sounds came...

Sony Handycam DCR-SX33

 

It's very portable. Easy to use. Tremendous optical zoom, very impressed with it's range in such a small unit. Good quality lens. The SD card is very convenient for storage.
