HD quality, no more buying tapes!!!

mopsie, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: This camera is wonderful! The quality of video is second to none, and the best thing about it is that you don't need to keep buying tapes! Everything is recorded onto an internal hard disk drive (this one has a 30 gig HDD, but newer models have even bigger drives). At the highest quality HD, you can fit about 5 hours onto the hard drive. At a lower quality standard definition, you can fit over 20 hours before having to transfer everything to a computer.

Nice picture

  • Excerpt: The camera shoots excellent film and it is very easily transferred to PC for hard copy to disc. There is a lot of difficulty in keeping the native hi-def format due to file requires several DVD dsiks to record a small hi-def film. This reviewer is very eager to own a Blu-ray writer to accommodate the hi-def files in a better way while saving the hi-def memories. It is not easy to share the hi-def files via internet either due to file size and limited mediaplayer support.

Great Little Camera

jhinnant5858, Ebay

  • Summary: This camera has several important features that the combination can only be found in more expensive cameras. First is an external mic input. Get a BeachTek DXA-2T Universal Compact Camcorder Audio Adapter or similar device to allow XLR line-level or mic-level imput. You can also buy or build your own 40db pad and come off a mixer to do the same job. Another great feature is that this camera has Lanc that allows the use of a variety of zoom controls.

"Easy to handle and produces really sharp video."

EddieHyatt, CNET
10 May 2009
  • Pros: I like the size and ease to handle. I like the hard drive and the ease of transferring photos and video to a PC.
  • Cons: I have not been able to do live streaming on the Internet with the HDR-SR1. Can anyone tell me how to by-pass the hard drive on the SR1 and capture live video? I would like to use the SR-1 to stream live webcasts through my PC. Thanks!
