David, Edinburgh Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This camera is still giving good video and quality pictures,. Although the SONY DCR-HC30E has been over taken by technology it is still worth thinking about if you can get it for a good price.
Bad points:
It is not compatable with some windows operating systems so I cannot download to my PC.
