Sony Handycam HDR-XR350VE

 

The image quality is very good.Handling is pretty intuitive

Zoom function can be a bit difficult to control.It takes time to master to smoothen the zoom.As always you can never be satisfied with the battery life, as you are left are wanting more.PMB software needs improvement

Sony Handycam HDR-XR350VE

 

very easy to use, the weight o the camera, easy to download all images to the computer

not really a bad point but can be improved: a higher zoom rate because of the wide angle lens

Great!

 

Wish it had a shoe interface to mount extra lights or microphone device .. for the thing it does, something like that would be ideal. But I have no regrets, as it did me good. It keeps taking pictures at regular intervals with the face auto-smile...

I used it for recording 2 full-day seminars of 6 hrs. each day on HD .. & it worked without me having to back up on Day1 ;

No shoe interface for add'l mounting ;

Just got back from my 10th anniversary cruise to the bahamas..........very disappointed with the video quality of this camcorder, every time I went from our room to the outside the lens fogged up internally. My 10 year old sony doesn't do this........I...

nice, small, tight camcorder package
