  • Summary: With a 60GB internal hard drive, the DCR-SR85 (MSRP $549.99) has the largest storage capacity of Sony\'s entry level standard definition camcorders. Replacing last year\'s DCR-SR42, Sony added a larger hard drive, a slightly revamped design, and a 100% increase in effective pixel count.

  • Conclusion: The Sony DCR-SR85 is a good quality mid-range camcorder that easily matches any standard-def model in its price range. If you're determined to ignore the HD boom, you could certainly do a lot worse than this.
  • Pros: 60GB hard drive, decent specs for the asking price, memory stick slot, beginner-friendly touch screen interface
  • Cons: Poor stills mode, struggles under low lighting
