Sony DCR-SR33E


Light, compact and easy to use Sound quality superb, microphone seems quite windproof Hard drive has loads of capacity HD available if needed

Software awkward and camera refuses to talk to my PC which runs Vista Still image quality poor Video colours wishy washy unless in bright light Videso won't insert into Moviemaker on XP without crashing it File sizes too large to e-mail or upload...

This camera is so small it's brilliant as you can take it anywhere! And not having to worry abut tapes etc.. is also a great feature.

We had no idea that the files would be so huge - consequently we are running out of space on our computer and have had to have a massive file clear up!
