Sony HDR-SR11

 

An excellent handycam

Suburb high-definition video quality, good low-light performance, 10.1Mp stills mode, tonnes of advanced modes and features

A little on the chunky side

The HDR-SR11 is a slightly cheaper alternative to Sony's top-of-the-range HDR-SR12E. With the exception of a smaller hard drive, it offers identical performance to its award-winning sibling.

Terrible

 

I would rate it about 4 out of 10. After the download problem I sold mine and have now gone for a high quality digital compact camera with memory cars for both still and video. Mush easier to download and store.

An easy Camera to use. You can record your movies on the hard drive and still shots on a memory card.

It is not the best at long shots or indoors for a camera of this cost. If you store your movie shots on the hard drive then its very hard to down load onto a disc from your computer. I had to take the camera to a Pro Camera Shop and he said it tied his...

Excellent

 

I hope this camera lasts forever (or can be fixed when it breaks) because the pics are so fantastic and real I don't need anything more and the video is so crisp and clear I couldn't be happier. People complaining about wanting 1080P are really just...

No other Sony cam or other brand offers high quality still image and video capture, my 12E has 10.2mp photos and 1080i video = NOT expensive either, especially considering you have 2 in 1 :)

Discontinued so I had to get one second hand not new

Good

 

Great easy to use high quality video camera, learn how to use Sony Vegas and you wont have any issues.

This is a great video camera for everyday use. Sony have done well with making this video camera easy to use and designed it well for the future. All the common connections (eg HDMI, Microphone) are neatly placed on the camera and covered by a have a...

The picture quality could be better. It is not as reliable as the videos you take, some of them don't turn out too good even on a nice day, mainly long distance shots. But for everyday photo taking it does the job. The video format it records in is...

Good

 

The thing I hate the most about my HDRSR11 is the still photos are terrible in indoor and low light conditions. The second thing is there is no video editing software come with the handycam. Other than those, I am very happy with this handycam. I think...

High quality video, efficient memory of 60GB, sturdy, big and vivid touch screen, easy to use. USB connection is available on both the unit itself or on the dock.

Sub-average quality still photos, expensive accessories. Noisy microphone in windy weather. Poor quality supplied battery.
