Summary: I previously used a canon camcorder. While that one was not too bad, it wasn't convenient at all times.. carrying cassettes around and it was just slightly bulky (as compared to the newer models) Enter Sony DCRSX33ES. I saw it in John Lewis and was impressed by its compactness.
Summary: I actually got this dcr elsewhere, but after reading the quite negative review given here, felt I wanted to give mine, so here goes: The dcr is light, easy to use (even for a technophobe like myself), and the quality is pretty good - regardless of cost.
Summary: The delivery and packing was excellent, Camera and instructions dead easy to follow and video taken on holiday were great and easy to use, the burning to disc cannot be easyer and the method is well instructed in the neat handbook.
Summary: Brilliant and easy to use, whether its short films or holidays this camera is perfect. Its got great battery life, small, light, easy to edit its just the job. Memory card is the best option, no moving parts, no noise easy to record, buy one!
Summary: I was given this for my (tenth) birthday and I am more than pleased with it. the video qaulity is excellent, the sound quality is very good, and the picture is very clear considering it is not HD. Although i have only had it a short amount of time, i am already having great fun with it.
Summary: I was delighted with the size and how easy it is to use. The clarity is excellent and sound good. Have not tried videoing in dim light so cannot pass comment. I did not have any difficulty with the software but my poor old computer certainly slowed down after I had loaded it.
Summary: I had never owned a camcorder before and have been very pleasantly surprised by this item. The picture quality is very good. The camera may struggle in dim light, but it is pretty much as I would expect.
Summary: Straightforward, easy-to-use and producing excellent results. Very compact and lightweight - I also fitted my digital still camera along with it into the recommended carrying case. The comparatively small size was a bit of a surprise at first as I had had a dinosaur of a video camera in the past.
