Superb close ups with a 50x optical zoom

Bring far away action closer without losing clarity using the powerful 50x optical zoom built in to this camcorder’s high quality Sony lens.

Digital Steady Shot™ reduces blur

Shooting with a camcorder in your hand means one slight shake could turn your movie into one big blur. To avoid this, Digital Steady Shot™ works automatically as a digital image stabiliser to ensure you get steady images every time - even when you're zooming in.

Face Detection for great group shots

When shooting people, Face Detection adjusts the camera's settings to deliver natural skin tones and makes sure up to eight faces in your shot are in focus. It’s also perfect for shooting portraits.

Keep your precious memories with DVDirect

The SX15 is compatible with DVDirect, an optional portable DVD burner that burns your camcorder footage straight onto DVDs so you can keep them and enjoy them at any time on your DVD player. You don’t even need a PC or special software - just press a button and let DVDirect do the rest.

Lightweight and compact

Because you never know when you'll want to shoot something, the SX15 is small and light enough to take everywhere - pop it in your bag for a party or slip it in your pocket for a walk in the park.

Easy to use

Using the SX15 is simplicity itself. The camera includes easy-to-select modes for many lighting conditions including dusk, sunrise & sunset, fireworks, landscape, portrait, spot, sports (video only), candlelight, beach, snow for perfect movies every time. Backlight compensation ensures people won’t appear as silhouettes in whatever you’re shooting and pressing the Easy Handycam® button means you can simply point and shoot.

Makes managing your movies fun and simple

The included Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software takes the effort out of organising your movies. Just install it on your PC and you'll have a perfect archive for your films which are all just a click or two away. You can arrange them by date, by person, and search through them quickly. You can then easily burn them to discs, send them to friends or upload them to your favourite video sharing sites like YouTube™ in seconds.

Superb image quality

The SX15 captures images in MPEG2 format for sharp, high quality images. It also includes an 800k CCD sensor which offers increased sensitivity and captures crisp, clear video. The result is beautifully natural looking results. The intelligent auto shooting mode also means everything you film will look extraordinary detailed.

Video light for indoor shooting

Shooting indoors or in low light conditions? The built-in Video Light will illuminate what’s in front of the camera so you can capture the action.

Capture the action faster

Great action can come and go in seconds, so you don't want to waste time starting up your camera. Switch on the SX15 and it’s ready to go in seconds so you'll never miss a special moment.

I bought this camcorder as I was on a tight budget but it IS NOT A BUDGET CAMERA
fantastic stills super video and very easy to use (and I'm rubbish with gadgets being over 55 yrs old )
the cam feels solid in your hand, but light enough to manover easily,the controls are simple and the screen bright and easy to see.
All in all I have used this camera for 4 months now and truly can't fault it even the battery life is far better than most others I've tried giving 2+hrs recording time no problem.

Ive decided i will just give you the facts and figures and give a small overview but you can make your mind up!
Pros-
1. Small/Light
2. Easy to use
3. Really Good Zoom!
4. Excellent Battery Life and just plug in to charge (No fiddling about with batteries)
5. Good light on the front of camera
6. Good quality sound produced
7. Manual and Auto focus
8. CHEAP!

Cons-
1. Manual lens cover is a bit annoying... but manageable
2. Not very good image quality in low lighting but for the price you're paying!

OVERALL.... a well worth it product for a first time video camera owner. But if you are looking for those pristine shots and crystal sound quality i would advise spending another £50 on a HD sony camcorder because in my opinion they are the best! But i will definitely use this camera a lot!
