Great Product

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a must have camcorder for ghost hunting. I am the Co-Founder of Lawrence County Ghost Hunters and I have to say this thing is amazing for what I use it for. The only thing is the picture quality. It doesn't have the best quality but its not bad either. The built in hard drive is what makes this one of the best camcorders I have ever had. It is also very easy to use which is also a great thing.

Order the extra battery

  • Summary: Overall it is a good product. The battery life is not the greatest so you will want to purchase a bigger battery. The stabilization feature is wonderful. Takes pretty good pictures. Takes some getting used to if you are used to using the older, clunkier recorders.

Great product for home videos

D. G. Holden, Amazon

  • Summary: Ease of use on this camcorder is awesome! Nothing fancy to the settings - which make it very nice to pull out of the box and start using. Download softward is pretty user friendly, and 30GB capacity is great - I have been able to record 3-4 of my son's football games on the HD before even getting close to running out of memory. Picture quality is acceptable for long distance, but much better at close up recording. Easy to view, delete your videos.

Sony DCR-SR45 30GB Hard Drive Handycam

J.Coelho, Rate it all!
23 September 2008
  • Summary: This is a good Camera for the price, but I think you should find a better one for additional $70-100. It's compact, has a very nice zoom and HD capacity, accepts MS cards and has a useful touch screen that allows you to access all functions. But it has a very limited CCD, that doesn't allow you to have very high resolution recordings. The movies look nice in the small 2.7 screen, but it will be not so good for presenting in bigger screens, like a 32" LCD or higher.

Sony DCR-SR45 30GB Hard Drive Handycam

  • Summary: I've had this camera for the first few weeks and I am still in the process of learning how to use it. However there are a few things I can comment on. First, it is correct that the absence of optical vewfinder is a real problem with sunlit bright scenes: you just cannot see what you are filming, the LCD is not strong enough to fight the glare from the sun, so you are left blind.

A great camera for a great price

Allen Shepard, Amazon

  • Summary: I've only been using my camcorder for a few weeks now, but I really love it. It is very light-weight and user friendly. One of the best features, and one of the most important to me, was the generous onboard memory. I can shoot hours and hours of video without messing with cards, tapes, or discs. This camera doesn't take as crisp still pictures as my Kodiak Easyshare, but the video looks great.

Decent, but not as good as expected

G. Lee "TexCali", Amazon
31 August 2008
  • Summary: After much research trying to decide between this one (the price/value performer) and spending about $350 more on the JVC Everio (HiDef), I chose this one for the price and for the user-friendly touch screen panel. I haven't purchased a video camera in over 6 yrs. I've only had it for a couple days, but the picture quality is not as sharp as I expected indoors. I trust it looks fine outside.

NICE CAMERA, EASY TO USE

T. Akers, Amazon
6 August 2008
  • Summary: Bought this camcorder to take on cruise. Realy liked the compact size and ease of use. When I got it home it was a breeze to down load and burn a DVD but that is all the softwear allows you to do, no special effects.The screen in sunlight is useless and with no view finder sometimes you are just guessing what you are getting.Qualitity of video is good and with the 30GB hard drive video time is no worry.The zoom was not bad either and the built in stabalizer really helps...
