  • Summary: Hi. I bought the sony dcr sr32e about 5 years ago.I am keen on video and have used it a lot.The machine is easy to use and the instructions are easy to follow.The still photo side of it are rubbish..but i did not buy it for stills so i dont use this part.The videos are by far very clear (i have also recently purchased a dcr sr58...no where near as good). After having it (dcr 32e) for about 2 years the screen went blank and at a cost of £126 to get it fixed.

Good, but expensive to fix when it goes wrong

  • Summary: I bought one of these for my son in Feb 2007, so thought it useful to put in an update on how it has fared after 4 years. The camcorder was easy to use and download images and the zoom is great. He had lots of fun making films and editing them on the computer with free basic film editing software that you can get for PCs including just about every special effect you could imagine.

Sony SR32 HDD camcorder

William Morrison, Amazon
27 May 2010
  • Summary: This camcorder produces very good quality video and audio unfotunately there is no viewfinder which I was very annoyed about as it was the first camcorder I have had without one I also took it for granted it had one (my fault)this camcorder was bought before HD was available and no viewfinder is almost universal today.I would not buy another camcorder without a viewfinder.I have always liked Sony and still do and any other HDD camcorder make would probably have no...

Nice and compact, easy to use

  • Summary: I have used this product for quite a long time now... Its very easy to use... the touch screen is quick and responsive. The sound from the camcorder itself was amazingly loud (i mean it was unexpected from a tiny thing like that). The only thing I would've like better would be a longer battery life and pictures with a little higher resolution. I specifically like the date-to-date sorting of videos. Overall, nice buy.

edit impossible

  • Summary: This camera seemed fine, pictures and film downloaded and viewed on my PC OK But I've tried three diferent video edit programs on 2 different PCs and all the programs have frozen after inserting a couple of clips from this camera. They don't like it. Unfortunatley Sony Contact is down under high volume of communications at the moment, now I think about it they didn't reply to a querry I made a year ago about something else. I'm not quite sure what to do about it.

MAC USER? AVOID! But great camera for PC users

D. J. Warren "bergerac_dan", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera a few days ago and I loved it. It's size, it's price, it's features, it is a great entry level HDD camera. I was in love. I made some great videos on it. But then it came to getting the videos on to my Mac... I could move them over fine, but the mpeg2 format caused me problems. I paid for and downloaded the mpeg2 add on for quicktime and I could now view and edit the movies. But the quality is abysmal, the videos are horribly (re?

A nice little "point and shoot" camera from Sony.

  • Excerpt: This is a very good camera from Sony which combines most of the features you really want in one small, compact package. The LCD screen is clear and the touch menus are easily navigated although manipulating the camera through software is much easier and I tend to do it this way to preserve the screen. The still picture quality is ok but not on a par with a camera deisgned for that purpose.
  • Pros: Small Size, Light Weight, Good Movie Quality, Easy to Use, automatic settings do a great job .
  • Cons: Still picture quality less than stellar, software adequate but not great .

Sony Handycam DCR SR32E

  • Excerpt: I find this camcorder to be far superior to my old DVD one. The hard drive means that it is much more compact, and reads and writes loads faster too - without the aggravation of DVD insertion and removal. I have also found it to be reliable - it captured some excellent video of my Christmas and New Year's Eve parties, which played back and transferred with perfect picture quality (although not as superior as HD quality of course).
  • Pros: Excellent picture quality, portability, easy to use touch screen
  • Cons: Battery life, few supplied software editing features
