Summary: I've only played with it for a little bit. It is a gift for our daughter in collage. I think it is perfect. Easy to use. Small. Plenty of hard drive. No CDs! I plan to get a memory card just to make it a tad easier to transfer. But it isn't really necessary. Item was used. But in excellent shape.
Summary: The Sony DCR-SR42 w/30GB Hard Drive is better than I expected when I placed my order. It is so easy to use. The digital camcorder playback is so crisp and clear. And the colors are reproduced so faithfully.
Summary: Also bought this for my son in Miami, beach, Fl. He knows electronics and this was what he wanted,great price and delivered on time, thanks for competitive prices Amazon. Sony DCR-SR42 30GB Hard Disk Drive Handycam Camcorder with 40x Optical Zoom
