Sony HXR-MC50E professional HD camcorder

Superb 1080p Full HD video, effective spot focus/exposure, reliable auto mode

Too similar to Sony's high-end consumer offerings, limited audio options

With its bundled external microphone and exceptional image quality, the Sony HXR-MC50E camcorder is a reliable, all-in-one package that doesn't skimp on extras features. Professional videographers may require something a bit meatier though.

Sony HXR-MC50E

 

Quick response to start shooting ; Just the right weight to alleviate tiredness in your arms if you don't carry a mono-pod ; Flip out screen is good once you get used to it ; If you don't use a tripod then use the external microphone for good sound...

I would have been willing to pay more for a bigger view finder with a decent cup, however, when the guarantee runs out I'll be doing a bit of DIY on that part
