4.0 out of 5 stars Well Built (really, really, maybe too compact) Travel Camcorder, 4 July 2009
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony DCRSR37ES Handycam Camcorder With Built-In 60GB HDD (45hrs) (Electronics)
The Sony HandyCam HDD DCR-SR37 is well built piece of Sony techology. It is a true compact camcorder (it literally fits in the palm of my hand) with default automatic focusing which can be changed to a semi-manual mode.
Its 60x Zoom is suprisingly effective on such a small camera although this is almost impossible to use without a tripod.
The camera size makes it susceptible to shaky video production. It takes some practice to zoom in any degree and, at the same time, prevent the camera shaking while you operate the buttons.

One thing I particularly liked was the touch-screen operation which is more efficient than actual buttons - But I thought that the interface could possibly be slightly more user friendly, its okay, but not brilliant (If you're clever enough to build an HDD camcorder with all its trimmings then surely you can design a fantastic interface?).

I was a little disappointed with the picture quality. I had an old tape Canon camcorder about 15 years ago that produced a better quality - it must be the digital format!?

Oh, yes, I purchased an NP-FH70 battery pack to replace the rather ridiculous battery they ship the camera with.

Summary: A marvellous TRAVEL camcorder.
