Sony DCR-SR62E

 

The recent explosion in digital video sales has caused a staggering number of cameras to enter the marketplace. Even after you've narrowed down the fo...

Small and attractive design, 30GB hard drive, very user-friendly, external microphone jack

Only 1 megapixel, zoom is less powerful than cheaper HDD models, a bit too light

The DCR-SR62E is a much better option than some other HDD models on the market; especially if you're a first time user. It strikes the right balance between picture quality, useful features and price.

Gets the job done.

 

This camcorder does everything I need it to do. The zoom is very powerful and I appreciate that. It's lightweight and easy to use. The battery life is good and the battery has aged well.

Lightweight, Easy to Use, Great Design

Poor Sound

Amazing video camera for the price until HD is common

 

Apr 2008 - First let me explain the problems with other forms of camcorder media on the market and then I'll review this camcorder. There's a problem with current High Definition (HD) camcorders like the Sony HDR-SR5. Google "AVCHD video: The ...

one-touch DVD recording, very compact, two zoom controls, Active interface shoe
