Sony Handycam DCR-SX31

 

Very good internal memory, saving cost of cards etc. A compact straight forward device which is ideal for my needs, family, aviation, pets etc. Good lens cap which even I can`t lose !

Excellent low weight, good battery life and quick to start up and record, so you don't have to leave it on.

Can't charge the battery whilst using it, it either charges when switched off or powers the camcorder when on. Very frustrating not being able to used the three spare batteries I had for my previous sony tape camcorder, as they don't fit. Menus aren't...

Sony Handycam DCR-SX31

 

The camera is very lite and very small. The image quality is very good for a camera with standard image quality. The optical zoom is amazing but is hard to keep the camera steady at high zoom.
