Sony SR40 is a great Camcorder that delivers on all levels
7 April 2013
Summary: The SR40 Handycam is a nice little camcorder that is big on delivery. I am in a paranormal group and we use only Sony's with night shot - some are a bit clunky but not this one. The SR40 is lightweight, fits nice in you hand (even the big hands of the men in our group), is easy to use and delivers a stellar picture even in low light. There is a built in IR light but we supplement it with an external light to deliver a truly clear, crisp image.
Summary: This is a 30 GB hard drive camcorder with Night-vision .. It will record in total darkness .. Not in the normal green and black night vision but night vision in a type black and white that is much clearer .. Much better than the normal green and black .. 7 hrs of battery life .. Bring it home .. Set it in it's Docking station .. Push a button and boom .. It pops up on your computer like a flash drive .. ( after the docking station is plugged into the USB port ) ..
Summary: When I purchased this video camera, I wanted one that did it all without allot of thought on my part.... I got that and more. With the touch sensitive screen, you can choose options from the menu without any real hassle. When your done, connect it to the computer and drop the movie into any movie software. I use iMovie and it works great. The HD is amazing and the sound is very sensitive. The setting allow for even candle light.
Summary: Want to see how this video camera performs...see our race videos with varying lighting and daylight shots at [...] It works fantastic for high speed, low lighting conditions, zoom and pan. Enjoy!
Summary: Well, was looking for an inexpensive camcorder. Already have one, but the other half wants to make their own youtube videos and they use the camcorder a lot. What I like it this one will do good in low light and even has nightshot for dark shots. Looking forward to seeing that in action. Also, love not having to buy tapes anymore and the rewinding and forwarding. Also no worry that you are recording over something else.
Summary: I like this product. I already have one but my dock and all power cables burned up in my sons house fire. I seen on ebay the dock was has much as getting the camera too. So I decided to get the camera too which are great cameras. And this one is perfect. you must have the dock for this camera.
Summary: Several other people have already written thorough reviews so we dont need another one. I do want to point out a few things I think folks may wish to know. First off, I got this many years ago from Best Buy when it was brand new, and I paid considerably less than 700 dollars. Dont know why it took a price raise over the years.
Summary: This is the first video camera I have ever owned, so it's difficult to glean a comparison. I researched it before I bid and other stated that it was a good camera. I use it in my business ( construction) and It is making me money so far, so that's a good attribute. All in all, a first rate, easy to use camera.
