Sony DCR-SR200E

 

When it comes to purchasing a digital video camera, modern consumers are spoiled for choice. With HD, mini-DV, and DVD all vying for your attention, m...

Impressive video performance, decent stills camera, highly user-friendly

Limited selection of manual controls, performs poorly in low light levels

The Sony DCR-SR200E manages to stand out from the crowd thanks to its impressive image quality and exceptional ease-of-use. One of the better HDD handycams on the market.

More than meets the eye

 

Over all this is a great camera for the home enthusiast. The software it came with really does nothing for you in the way of editing the videos, I tried a trial of the sony vegas software which worked well with the file formats but was a bit to clunky...

Lightweight only a little over a pound with the battery, makes long filming sessions easy and comfortable without a stand. The zoom is fast and responsive, much more so than any of the cheaper models that I tested at a local retail store. One thing not...

The camera does not perform as well as I had hoped or even heard, in low light situations. Make sure you have decent over-all lighting for recording or else you will get a lot of noise. I also don't like the fact it records in a non "universal" format...

Not the quality I expect from Sony. ”

 

The Sony DCR-SR200 camcorder has 40 GB memory on its hard drive.  This seems like a fantastic way to travel light, without having to lug boxes of tapes around.  In reality, it can cause paranoia that one crash will delete all of your movies, so I...
