Summary: Great product came with quick delivery. Solid transaction all around. This filled my need quite well. I will purchase more products from this seller in the future. Great quality for a great price.
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.
Summary: I have gone through several camcorders in the past 5 years and recently began my search for a hi-def camcorder. One of my frustrations with DV tapes is that for me, they tended to sit on the shelf and gather dust. They took tons of storage space to encode (way more than AVCHD).
Summary: Well... I've been waiting since the very beginning of this year to buy a new camcorder. At first I was waiting for the release of the JVC MG505. Which, as you probably know if you're looking at this camera, is a 3 CCD Harddrive camcorder.
Summary: The Sony HDR-SR1 is compact and lightweight as are most camcorders these days. It is very easy to operate right out of the box. The touch screen menu driven system is fairly intuitive and easy to get along with.
