Sony HDR-XR150 camcorder

 

Full HD Sony camcorder with 120GB hard drive and 25x optical zoom

Good HD video performance, 120GB hard drive, compact size, three recording formats in one

Touch screen occasionally annoys, sub-par still image mode

The Sony HDR-XR150 is a reasonably priced Full HD camcorder that provides good video and plenty of user-friendly features. Its chief strengths are a 120GB hard drive and 25x optical zoom lens. Recommended.

Great camera

 

This camera I use both for video and still shots. The touch screen makes this camera easy to use and the features that it has help if you are not a professional. I also like the fact that I can store pictures on the hard drive or insert a memory card....

Steady shot feature, touch screen, small compact size.
