I acquired one of these from amazon for £175 with a free of charge digicam bag and free of charge (rapid) supply. I had checked out this design @ argos and currys who had been promoting for £209. Looking at that the bag is well worth £15, i saved £49 all in. Amazon have been unbeatable on thisthis is a very first class camcorder which is exceptionally simple to use. The easycam purpose automates just about just about every placing, but for tweakers like me, you will find a superior array of custom made settings also. Photograph excellent is sharp, and the impression stabiliser is effective properly. The 800k ccd picture sensor is best drawer, rendering powerful, vivid colors. All of these modest camcorders have fewer than amazing microphones, but the hc37’s picks up incredibly minor tape transport sounds and distant appears are decently reproduced. Pc connectivity is very good with both equally usb streaming and ieee1394 (firewire) connections.

I was very impressed with the delivery from amazon having ordered this item; it arrived the following day. This is the first time i have purchased an ‘electrical’ item from amazon, so i’m well impressed. I bought the sony dcr-hc37 handycam to replace an old analogue samsung 8mm camcorder that finally died on me after owning it for 8 years. I’m one of these people who hate going through the instructions first (impatience i know) but found that the handycam hc37 was so easy to use, i didn’t need to view the instructions first. Basically, get the camcorder home or have it delivered next day by amazon and charge the battery (all necessary units included in the box, except dv tapes). I also purchased the dv tapes so i was all ready to go as soon as the thing charged, this took about 45 minutes if my memory serves me right. Switch on, open the viewfinder, press easy button and press rec to start filming. I took the camcorder off to the park with the dog in tow and filmed around five minutes. Got home stuck the cables into the tv (audio, video jack etc) and into the camcorder and hey presto, there was my filming on the tv.

Very pleased with service provided by seller.

I am very joyful with this acquire – i failed to want to spend much on a camcorder, but i required some thing effortless to use and set up, with respectable plenty of high quality for playback on a pc. This does the job for not quite considerably cash. The only gripe i have with this is that it isn’t really accurately created to do the job with macs. Never get me completely wrong – as soon as i had bought the right firewire, it worked flawlessly perfectly with imovie on my macbook pro, but the program it will come with is windows only and there is no endeavor at offering enable with a mac established-up. That stated, this is possibly 1 of the number of that appears to be to function with a mac. Total – i would surely propose buying it as a affordable and cheerful way into the camcorder current market.

Sony DCR-HC37 Handycam Mini DV Camcorder With 2.5” LCD Screen : Got this camera for xmas , camera its self is great , fast charging times , touch screen use is really good and its a good little cam all around. The only bad points i have to make are the fact it does not come with usb , firewire or any dv tapes. If you want to tranfer video from the camera to your pc you will need the firewire i. Link cable (there on ebay for £2 inc. Delivery) , you will not be able to transfer video with the usb only images.

Read all the reviews first and then went for it. Delivery was prompt and painless. Tried out the recorder and thought it was well worth the money. I was greatly impressed with the 40plus telephoto lens and the image stabiliser both were excellent. But do get a firewire cable to download your video to your hard disk. The fact that sony didn’t include it didn’t bother me. I had to pay about £4 for one and it works well. As i am not planning to go for an oscar anytime soon, i’m happy with it. Go on–you know you want to.

I am very happy with this purchase – i didn’t want to spend much on a camcorder, but i wanted something easy to use and set up, with decent enough quality for playback on a computer. This does the job for not very much money. The only gripe i have with this is that it isn’t exactly designed to work with macs. Don’t get me wrong – once i had bought the correct firewire, it worked perfectly well with imovie on my macbook pro, but the software it comes with is windows only and there is no attempt at providing help with a mac set-up. That said, this is probably one of the few that seems to work with a mac. Overall – i would certainly recommend buying it as a cheap and cheerful way into the camcorder market.

Great value easy to use gadget. It has been many years since we bought our previous and only camcorder, a jvc s-vhs device which got little use, and today looks frankly embarassing. So when looking around for a replacement i had no idea which “flavour” to go for dv/dvd/hd etc but after reading a few forums, i ended up deciding to go for the tried and tested dv format – i have to say first impressions are great. . Easy to set up and connected with my mac and imovie first time, having read other reviews i made sure before buying, that i already had the right firewire cable, as you only get the av variety in the box. The colour and sharpness of the image is impressive for such a “low end” model and all in all, for £150, i think it would be difficult to find a better camera.
