Sony DCR-SR210E Camcorder Review

 

The Sony SR210E allows you to record up to 41 hours of high quality video and up to 4 Megapixel still images directly onto the 60GB high capacity hard disk drive, without having to carry additional tapes or discs.

According to the Sony site, the DCR-SR210E is not compatible with i.Link and so, unfortunately, this means it’s not compatible with an Apple Mac.
