Sony Handycam DCR-SX41 is GREAT!!!

  • Excerpt: The thing you have ot remember about the camcorder is that it is an entry-level camcorder so for me it is perfect.  I am by no means a professional video recorder.  This camcorder is small enought to fit into the palm of your hand.  Its lightweight and portable enough to tkae just about anywhere.  The battery life is excellent and will give you up to about two hours when fully charged.  It has 8GB of internal memory.

Great camera.

  • Summary: Bought this to digitize tapes shot on my procam. Now I use this more than the HDV camera. Has all the controls I need but I wish it had the audio functions I miss on the prosumer camera. Never thought I would prefer this over the big brother. I haven't had disappointments with the zoom but I did install a wide angle adapter for better room coverage. Keep it mounted ALL the time.

Sony Handycam DCR-HC32

  • Summary: This camcorder records in spectacular color. The 20x optical zoom is a great feature. The greatest feature for my needs is the Super Night Shot. The regular night shot puts a small circle of light where you can see. The Super Night Shot lights up an entire room. It is very suited for paranormal applications but with super night shot, you need to put it on a tripod due to pixalization. I also recommend an FP90 battery which lasts between 4 & 8 hours.

Sony Handycam DCR HC32

  • Summary: Before buying a digital camcorder, I read about them on eBay, and some of the sellers give you a guide to figure out what camera is best for you and your purposes with the camcorder. I quickly figured out that I needed a Mini-DV, or at least that type of camcorder. I figured Sony probably made the best, as my daughter had a Sony digital camera and was really happy with it.

Nice camcorder, some things to look out for.

  • Summary: The sony dcr hc32 is one of the sleekest cameras for it's price. However, I find the little touchscreen to be a tad difficult to use without a stylus (wonder why Sony couldn't include one). If you have stubby fingers like me, it takes a while to get used to the tiny menu buttons. Inevitably, the screen gets covered with thumbprints. I started using the top-eraser of a small pencil.

Great for point and shooters

  • Summary: The camera is great for point and shoot users. It is very easy to use (although the camcorder menu is a bit tricky) and has very decent images. The software provided is not great.

A good camera for the money.

  • Summary: This is a very good camera for the price range. I have always had good luck with Sony products, unlike some of the reviewers here. The resolution of the viewer window and the image quality itself is more than what I would expect from a camera in this price range.... it's pretty decent. For what most people use DV cams for, this is camera doesn't suck at all. I like how tiny it is. It doesn't go much past the palm of my hand when I'm holding it.

Sony Handycam DCR HC32

  • Summary: LCD screen puts out vibrant colors. Touch screen is excellent to use and you can access the menu and change something while recording with simple ease. One quirk about it that I kinda dont like is that when I take photo still, it does puts alot of grainy pictures (pixels) when viewing it. I assumed sony has this under control which obviously it got away. Other than that, It is an excellent mini dv camcorder.
