Good points:
Light and easy to use. You can switch from video to camera mode very easily.The speed the battery re charges is great
Bad points:
In bright light it would be good if there could be a beeping noise if you leave the lens cover accross as you
can`t always see the screen to read the message.

Good points:
Helo,here is what I think about my SONY DCR-SR75E camcorder;
It has the facility for the latest conections like mike,lights,storage card,and loves my computer,likes windows 7,loves my pinnacle studio editing programe ,works well with my second older sony handycam that uses cassettes,and is enableing me to create excellent movies, and pics. The touch screen and graphics make filming a piece of cake,you have put in some amazing and interesting facilities for us to get stuck in to,and is very user friendly.I am retired now and am having the time of my life with this camera.Thank you sony I am in love with this unit, its made in heaven,it is fairly well affordable for the likes of me and I recommend it to my friends.I woulld like to purchase the zoom mike and light for it when i can afford it.Many thanks Jeffrey.

Paul, Cobham Keen amateur

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
As a video camera it is very good
Bad points:
requires an eyepiece viewfinder as in bright sun the screen is unreadable BUT the biggest problem is how do you edit the footage to delete unwanted sections, move sections around, add music and titles. So all movies get edited down to 5% of the shots taken but you can't do it here as no decent editor of MPEG2-VHS was simpler.
