Great

Jen Lancashire Lass, Amazon

  • Summary: Cheap and cheerful, got it for a bargain £130 on Amazon so can't beat that. It's lightweight, fits in my jacket pocket, and has loads of memory once you purchase a memory stick. Even without it, you get a few hours. The picture quality is OK...and probably more than OK for the price of it. It picks up sound very well. Operation is simple. Just open the lcd and press record.

Does what it says on the tin.

Wade, Amazon

  • Summary: Does what it says on tin, very basic camcorder pic quality not as good as HD as can be expected. Battery life only around an hour. Expect to buy a longer life battery a memory card and probably a case. Other than that not bad for the price, not very good if filming in low light as pic can become very grainy especially when played back on a large 42inch screen.

  • Summary: Very impressed by it's compactness and ease of use. Slightly irked that the accompanying software is not compatible with linux platforms but this can be worked around. Importing and editing files onto a pc is very easy.

  • Excerpt: "... ===Style=== The Sony DCR-SX30 comes in three fantastic colours, Red, Silver and Blue, all of which in my opinion are very stylish. The camera fits perfectly into the palm of your hand and has a nice feel to it. The surface is very shinny and aluminum and the nice compact size will allow you to place this camcorder in your pocket of your jeans or in a bag. You certainly won’t look like your carrying an old Kodak around. ===Durability=== ...
  • Pros: Lightweight, Small, easy to use
  • Cons: Picture Quality not bril, Scratches

Pretty and cute, but not for serious video

Rs Dumitrescu "Stefan D", Amazon
14 May 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camcorder as a present for my mother on the grounds of its looks, lightness and ease of use. It is indeed pretty and very light, small and dead simple to use. As usual with Sony camcorders, this feels like a quality product: well built, easy user interface, good manual, easy to take the video from the camcorder and put it on a computer.

Macht gut Bilder, lässt sich aber schwerfällig bedienen.

Hannes M., Guenstiger.de
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Die Kamera hat tolle Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, die tolle Aufnahmen ermöglichen, ein großartiges Display, ist klein und leicht. Allerdings lässt sich die Kamera nicht unbedingt einfach bedienen, ist also sehr umständlich und der Akku hält nicht allzu lange. Wegen dieser Schwächen ziehe ich mal einen Punkt ab.

Absolut ausreichend für das Urlaubsvideo

Ulrich H., Guenstiger.de
25 September 2013
  • Summary: Ich besitze die Kamera jetzt seit ca. 4 Monaten und kann sagen, dass sie für den "normalen" Hausgebrauch vollkommen ausreichend ist. Ich habe Sie im Urlaub ausreichend testen können und die Ergebnisse waren alle durchweg brauchbar (auch bei schlechteren Lichtverhältnissen). Man sollte sich aber einen zweiten Akku besorgen und eine zusätzliche Speicherkarte macht ebenfalls Sinn.
