Sony DCR Camcorder

 

High quality build, charges batteries fast, buy a spare battery. Changing batteries is fast and easy battery snaps on to the camera easily in seconds. Videos sure beats a single shot stills, you can also take stills too. Touch screen shows battery life...

I bought this camcorder to use on vacation, first camcorder I ever bought and used. Easy to use, videos turn out excellent under any condition, low light to full sun. Excellent sound high quality. Smaller than I expected fits in your hand nicely. Play...

Off/On switch cumbersome and awkward. Takes some getting use to. Good thing about the switch, it won't be turned on or off accidently

best SD cam

 

This camcorder is a perfect fit for me. I didn't need the overhead of HD filling up my Macbook yet, so I went with this SD cam. This is my third Handycam and it exceeded my expectations.

Apple iMovie with iLife 08 specifically supports this model of Sony HDD camera and codec, providing quick USB 2 import and easy editing. No more tapes! No more real-time transfers! Low light performance is great, especially with the slow shutter and...

The included battery only lasts 1.5 hours, so I had to buy two of the 6.5 hour batteries and a charger. No external video inputs

SONY DCR-SR82 Black/Silver 2.7"123K LCD 60GB 25X Optical Zoom Handycam Hard Disk Camcorder

 

Never tried it with a windows PC but not for the mac user. Video quality is still better with DV

Perhaps works well with windows

No mac support software. Does not work with iMovie. I was able to transfer the compressed vid to my mac, but then had to change format. Then it would woth with imovie, but video was choppy for some reason. No Firewire

good little camera ”

 

I purchased this camera mainly for use in my classroom. It was easy to use and did not need much instruction. Having been my first cam corder, I would have liked a good instruction booklet. It only comes with a quick start. The usage was fine but...
