Sony DCR-SR35E Camcorder Review

 

Record up to 20 hours of high quality video footage directly on to the Handycam's impressive 30GB Hard Disk Drive, without having to worry about tapes or discs – perfect for people who like to shoot on the go with minimal fuss.

Please can anyone tell me if it is possible – is there any software – to control the SR35 in a similar way, but through the USB cable?

Sony Handycam DCR-SR35

 

Light weight easy to use - took it on holiday to Australia and it coped fairly well with the bright conditions

the dial for on/off is a bit fiddly found it difficult to fond out how to delete things from the camera once they were downloaded to the computer
