Easy Camcorder
9 February 2007
  • Excerpt: In a world of rapidly burgeoning technology, the Sony DCR-HC36 ($400 MSRP) opts for the safe route. The HC36 and Sony’s entry-level HC26 share numerous core elements such as a standard 1/6â€� CCD chip, touch screen menu, limited manual controls, and budget construction. The only difference between the HC36 and the HC26 is a remote and the ability to capture stills at 640x480, which aren’t enticing upgrades by any means.
  • Pros: -Easy to use, -Small, compact design, -Good automatic features
  • Cons: -Poor video quality, -Limited manual controls, -Feels cheap

Sony DCR-HC36 Digital Camcorder Review

About.com

  • Conclusion: Photo Capabilities The DCR-HC36 has a built-in digital still camera, with the ability to save digital stills to a memory stick rather than the camcorder cassette tape. A dedicated digital still camera usually means decent quality prints, but in the case of the DCR-HC36 the stills are only 640 x 480. Photos at that resolution are no large enough to make decent resolution prints bigger than a wallet size.
