Sony DCR-SR100 Review

7 September 2006
  • Conclusion: It’s pretty simple—if you want to take the HDD camcorder plunge this is the one to buy—even though were problems with color accuracy. Sony is the dominant player in the camcorder world for a reason—it knows how to build high-quality, easy-to-use home video makers. And this is all the vast majority of buyers want. There’s no question dealing with all the material on a hard drive is a challenge but Sony makes it simple to handle with the one-touch DVD Burn.
  • Pros: 3.3MP CCD; 30GB HDD; 5.1 Dolby Digital sound; color viewfinder, Takes 7 hours of DVD-level video, Records 5.1 Dolby Digital sound, Very easy to use, High-quality 2.7-inch 16:9 touch screen LCD
  • Cons: Colors a bit washed out; no memory card slot; awkward placement of mode dial, Colors not as accurate as could be, Awkward placement of mode dial, No memory card slot

PC Magazine
8 July 2006
  • Conclusion: The DCR-SR100 30, Sony's first hard drive camcorder, is the best of its kind thus far, but it hasn't attained EC quality yet.
  • Pros: Very good video quality. Includes a viewfinder. Excellent night mode.
  • Cons: Expensive for a hard drive camcorder. Still-image features could be better. Bulky.
