Well well well, its time that I start making up my mind about which camcorder I should buy. I have always been a still photograph person and was never interested in buying camcorders before. But a future visit to India (after 7 years) has made me interested in buying one.

So the research has started and it seems like SONY is the big player in the camcorder business. Being a Sony loyalist myself (I have two Sony TV’s, two Sony Home Theatres, Sony Computer LCD moniter, Sony’s DSLR camera,….), I would not dare to think of any other brand for the camcoder that I am going to buy.

Camcorders are available these days in various recording formats like MiniDV, DVD, Hard disc etc. The newer the technology the prices they get. My initial research has shown that Sony’s DCR-SR100 is a very good camcorder in the hard disk camcorder market and looks like I am going to buy this one.


You can read the review for this camera here.

The compact Sony DCRSR100 30 GB Handycam Camcorder represents a breakthrough in digital home recording. With a 30 gigabyte hard disk drive that stores hours of video and hundreds of high-quality stills, a 10x optical/120x digital zoom, a built-in microphone that allows you to record in Dolby Digital 5.1ch surround sound, and many other features you’d only expect to find in the hands of professionals, Sony’s DCR-SR100 will turn your home videos into instant classics ready for the big screen.
