Very impressive camcorder and worth every penny,
This review is from: Sony DCR-SR72 Hard Disc Drive Camcorder With 2.7'' LCD Screen (Camera)
We bought this camcorder several weeks ago and although we've not much experience of other systems I've been very impressed with the size, weight, quality and options of this unit. It only took an hour or so to master using it. The picture and sound quality are very good and the touch screen system is quite easy to get used to.
The night vision option is good, not sure how much I'd use this but worth having!
We bought a spare battery (the Sony NP-FH100) which is much bigger (size) than the supplied battery but should last around 10+ hours.
We only have a few negatives with this system, the photos it takes are only 1Megapixel so don't expect outstanding photos like you get with your digital camera. In addition, the lens cover is manual so its easy to forget to close it when you put it away. Finally, there is no standard flash on the camcorder, although you can buy one. Having said that, these are in my opionion only small negatives, we're very happy with this camcorder and Amazon were so so os much cheaper than all other sites/shops. You can also get cashback from Sony if you buy it, see link on amazon for details.
As one of the other reviewers said, buy it, you won't regret it and for the price I can't imagine you'd get much more!
