Sony DCR-SR62E

 

The recent explosion in digital video sales has caused a staggering number of cameras to enter the marketplace. Even after you've narrowed down the fo...

Small and attractive design, 30GB hard drive, very user-friendly, external microphone jack

Only 1 megapixel, zoom is less powerful than cheaper HDD models, a bit too light

The DCR-SR62E is a much better option than some other HDD models on the market; especially if you're a first time user. It strikes the right balance between picture quality, useful features and price.

Gets the job done.

 

This camcorder does everything I need it to do. The zoom is very powerful and I appreciate that. It's lightweight and easy to use. The battery life is good and the battery has aged well.

Lightweight, Easy to Use, Great Design

Poor Sound

this product by far is the most impressive of any i've used. ”

 

In the two weeks I've used this product I have fallen in love.  To my great surprise it was touch screen.  I loved that simply because I am a Treo 750 owner.  The pictures I took of a little boy fishing were fantastic because the camera mode caught the...
