A waste of money

T. Hutchins, Amazon
8 March 2009
  • Summary: I pre-ordered this camera when it first came out and waited anxiously for it to arrive - some 60 days later. I will never, ever buy something that I have not touched and tried myself, ever again. Before we wasted our money on this camera we used a high end Sony Hi8 camera.

Very poor video quality

SpoonerStreet "Spoon", Amazon

  • Summary: I have to say, first of all, it hurts me to write this review. I wanted to like this camera. I really, really did. I loved the size, the shape, the ease of use. I even ordered an extra battery on how much I was going to use it. But I just didn't like the video quality. It is plain bad.

40X Zoom IS ACTUALLY 25X - FALSE ADVERTISING

Gerard A Bouchard "GAB", Amazon
4 May 2007
  • Summary: Yes, I brought the Sony DCR-SR42 (with 40x zoom) home and did some comparisons to my Canon ZR600(with 25x Zoom). I was shocked to see it could not bring in an object any closer than my 25x Canon. I then thought that maybe I had a bad camera so I brought it back to CompUsa.

pequeña inestable

DLENOIER, MercadoLibre
15 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Demasiado inestable el HDD. es filmadora de tripode.
  • Pros: Es muy pequeña, con gran calidad de imagen como todo lo SONY, una gran capacidad para guardar imagenes y fotografias por su gran HDD. Ademas se puede editar y eliminar sobre el mismo disco lo que no se utiliza ampliando así el espacio de grabacion.
  • Cons: La bateria es de poca capacidad. Posee un soft para evitar dañar el disco y no me deja vivir. Practicamente no puedo moverme porque el disco se detiene dando exeso de movimiento e inestabilidad así que tengo que filmar practicamente parado y sin mover demasiado la camara.
