Easy to use & operate, lightweight

Battery supplied was not very good in that it discharged very quickly ; Replacement Sony Batteries are expensive

Light easy to use

Battery life could be better If you have big hands some of the controls can be a bit small

Sony Handycam DCR-SX50

 

Compact, easy to use and good image quality. Very high optical zoom, but in practice its unusable without a tripod.

I may be old fashioned, but I still prefer a traditional viewfinder. Even with the backlight set to maximum it's hard to see the image on a sunny day. This resulted in a few badly framed shots. This seems to be common with all digital cameras in this...

Very handy and light. Size is smaller that I expected. Very good camcorder. Has good zoom features with stabilized recording.

None for a Standard Definition camcorder

Easy to use,except the record button would be better in the middle or left of the back of the recorder for easier access to turn on and off whilst your right hand is holding it with the strap
