A top class video camera at very affordable price with a super zoom

aethys, Ciao
24 February 2012
  • Excerpt: I am now having this video camera for the last 4 years. I got it from London under £150 when suddenly walking past one of the camera shop I noticed a discount on this piece. It was an impulsive purchase though I had been planning to buy one for long but was unable to find one of my specifications at an affordable price. Though I bought it for the right price alone, I have no regrets and would highly recommend it as the piece to own.
  • Pros: Superb Zoom, Extremely high video quality, Good audio quality, Easy to use, Reasonably priced
  • Cons: None that I know of

Replacement mini dv camcorder

Janet & Keith, Amazon
24 September 2010
  • Summary: My Dad's existing Sony mini dv camcorder, which he'd had for approximately 6 years, packed up last week whilst he was trying to record to a DVD disc. Unfortunately I couldn't help as my camcorder is SD, and with my sister being away (she too has a mini dv camcorder) Dad felt it more prudent if he sought a replacement.

Happy with Camcorder!

Self Help "Self Help", Amazon

  • Summary: I agree with a few people who rated this camera, that it would not work with a UBS. Anyway after buying an ilink I was OK. Thats the only reason why I gave it 4 stars, because the Sony DCr-HC45E is an excellent camera. Good quality picture, easy to use and lots of nice features.

Compact and good value

  • Summary: A great little standard definition dv camcorder which fits comfortably in the palm of the hand and produces good quality footage for general home&family use. The supplied software from Sony will only allow capture to PC via Firewire/iLink which means you have purchase an extra cable because its not included in the box.

Sony Software does not support USB Streaming

as27, Amazon
6 September 2007
  • Summary: The Picture Motion Browser software that comes with this doesn't have tool to download video using USB streaming. The only option that comes with it is iLink . So, if your PC doesn't have iLink then this handycam is useless. Even the iLink cable is not supplied by Sony. I was really surprised to see that USB streaming is not supported.

I want that One!

D. M. Bolton "Dan The Man", Amazon
5 September 2007
  • Summary: I've never written a review before but this camera has impressed me so much I had to tell someone. I've got so much passion for this camera I could easily become a sales rep. The picturs very sharp, the zoom is amazing, the accessories you can buy for this camera are great (waterproof casing/extra lenses), it's got night vision the lot. Get this camera and you won't be disapointed.

Store those moments

AJRAD, Ciao

  • Excerpt: This video camera is simply astounding. For one thing, it records at 800k pixels, which is huuuuge, allowing such amazing quality videos to be shot. It isn't too often that you will find a camera with this quality; I've taken so many videos with this camera and I've only had it such a short time.
  • Pros: excellent video & sound quality, easy to use, AMAZING zoom
  • Cons: you might get addicted to using it, it's so good

Amazing zoom!

Alan A. Hopkins, Amazon
22 May 2007
  • Summary: I don't actually own this camera but i have had the pleasure of using one at my local park (it's my friends camera). When i first held it, it fit in my hand nicely and was a nice weight. I then started zooming in on someone way over the other side of the park and wow, it didn't stop zooming until i was right in their face! The zoom is ultimately brilliant and i recommend this camera to anyone. The huge zoom could be incredibly useful.
