Sony HDR-SR10

  • Conclusion: At first glance, the glossy, almost button-free Sony seems a lightweight option. But delve into the touch menus and there’s plenty of high-tech features on board, from face detection and Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound to sharp 4-megapixel still photos. Focus and image quality are first class, faithfully reproducing vibrant colours and the finest of details.
  • Pros: The glimmering Sony brings a touch of class to any family function, thanks to a 2.7-inch touchscreen on which you can choose settings or adjust the focus and exposure (watch out for fingerprints!). The 15x zoom lens is the most powerful on test, and has a good optical stabiliser to keep it steady throughout its long range. The 40GB hard drive has room for up to 15 hours of movies.
  • Cons: While you do get an additional memory card slot, it’s Sony’s Memory Stick format, which is incompatible with the market-leading SDHC cards. The SR10 is incredibly well built but, like some of its rivals, a touch portly at over 480g.
