Excerpt: It’s been awhile since I had a handycam . The last one I got was four or five years ago. I can’t remember the exact series but the brand was JVC. I was so disappointed with it and got hooked with buying ordinary digital camera’s instead. But since this new Sony Handycam was a gift from my mom, I gave it a go and tested it. The Handycam is very very light. I can fit at the palm of your hands. There are three colors to choose from, mine was like midnight blue.
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. great still pictures and fun to use due to the cameras size,so much so that another one was purchased as a present which again arrived very quickly, the company should be proud of their service
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 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. I got this as a birthday present and have used it in all sorts of conditions - outside in bright weather and on a very stormy December night, inside to record both lit .
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. The touch screen is VERY easy to use and the camera is easy to operate and set up. Overall I am very pleased with this buy and would more than recommend it to other customers.
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. Touchscreen is easy to use and the controls are obvious, although keep the instruction book handy if you are new to camcorders.
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. Only downside was that it used flash and i was not aware how it stores the movies...
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. Bateery life is good and filmimg time is more than enough for what I need.I think it is good value for money and I like the touch screen operation.
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. After all it is a hand held camcorder for under £200 and not something Steven Spielberg would go for. I used it to shoot about 45 minutes of video yesterday and could still have got the same again from the battery.
