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-SR35E


And hence its better to have a camcorder only for the video purpose and not for still images. Its very handy and comfortable than compared to camcorders with CDs. And i can consider this as best for me.
