Excerpt: I decided to shoot my first short film made for the web so I bought the Sony DCR-SR300. I cast a few of my friends as actors and wrote a 7 page script. We shot this video in a few hours and this Sony camera made the whole process very easy. Each “take” that we shot is separated on the camera in individual clips. The touch screen on the display made it simple for me to delete bad scenes with one quick tap.
Excerpt: When I went to buy a new video camera for this Christmas I had some very specific ideas about what I wanted. I wanted good quality video and good quality pictures. I already had an older video camera - also a Sony by the way - but I was not happy with the poor quality of still pictures, they were basically useless.
Summary: I have used this camcorder to shoot a couple of videos while walking down the streets of newyork.Tee videos have come good. The best thing in this camera is that you don't need to familiarize your self with any of combinations.Its as simple as a point and shoot camera.Press the button and its starts recording.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Sound, Simple Controls
Summary: We just started using it and I am still learning how to get the most out of it. So far, it seems like a great camcorder. I didn't realize it was a touch screen even after reading the manual. I found the manual confusing and still find it difficult to understand.
Pros: Comfortable to Operate, Durable, Great Features, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Simple Controls, Versatile
