I bought this camera some time ago and it performs very well but i have just tried to transfer my video to my mac for the first time and it seems to be that this is not an option and the only alternative is to buy a dvd writer/burner. Very disappointing from what is otherwise a great camera.

Having first looked at sd card handycams i am so glad i read the reviews. This camcorder blows other formats out of the water and this was an excellent value for money purchase. Its so easy to use and just as easy to navigate through the index of your recordings. Using the 60x zoom takes longer to focus but there is no great loss of quality, there appears to be no loss in quality when using in low light either. The battery supplied gives adequate recording time, but you do need to keep the charger to hand just in case (recommend a second battery or a bigger one) dont look any further.

Dont be put off by drx review. Drx says you need to convert the video files to edit them. I disagree and here is a simple way to deal with editing – no downloads, codecs or other hassle. Connect the supplied cable to the pc and use the sony pmb programme (loaded from the cdr which comes with with the camera)to capture the video, having first directed the capture to the videos folder in the pc. When the capture is complete go to windows movie maker. In windows movie maker opening window click ‘import video’ in the left-hand list and navigate to the video folder containing the captured video. Identify the video, double click it to put the title(s) in the box and click import. The captured video will be shown in windows movie maker by an icon. Right click the icon and click ‘create clips’ in the dropdown list. This will create a number of clips which can be droppped and dragged into the storyboard.

Following a lot of research and having read all of the positive reviews for this camcorder on amazon, i selected this model and having used it during a recent holiday in the us, am thrilled with the results. As so many others have found, this camera is so easy to use, it’s light-weight, so easy to carry around every day and produced really good quality footage. Having now viewed the results on my ‘films’ upon return from holiday i am so happy with the results, great memories, safely stored by this camera. I love this camera and highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for an easy to use camcorder that’s ready to go as soon as you want it.

Sony DCRSR37ES Handycam Camcorder With Built-In 60GB HDD (45hrs) : Compact quality camcorder – excellent price on amazon. With two toddlers i just wanted a compact camcorder that is easy to use, well made with a quality picture. This is my first camcorder and i am delighted with it. I have used it on a number of day trips now and have found it to be ideal for quickly capturing those amusing incidents. As a real bonus, when in fully automatic “easy” mode to get filming you simply have to open up the viewing screen, open the lens (it will remind you) and press record – no longer than about 5 seconds. It also has a powerful 60 x zoom which is easily controlled with your forefinger and the 60 gb hard drive means you do not have to worry about memory cards. The only reason that i have not given it 5 stars is that sony only provide it with a 90 min battery which could be limiting if you are away from a power source. I bought in addition the sony np-fh50 battery (145 min) (from amazon not sony) and carry both in the lowepro clips 100 camcorder case which i also bought online for less than £10 inc p&p. The camcorder case can easily fit all leads for downloading and tv viewing as well as the adaptor for recharging and enables the camcorder to fit snugly at the top.

As this was a bit older new would be a bit more complicated to use. My wife struggles to use it, i should have got a simpler recorder for her. Ok for me as used to this stuff.

I bought this camcorder for my sister for her birthday in 2009, since she has been using it. She never complained about it. I guess it is still working well.

The pros:ok firstly just want to say this is a gr8 little camthe picture is a decent quality, the sound is good too, (with zooming mic. Makes for better sound)the battery is. . So so, however we purchased the extra life battery (also on amazon)and that really boosts performance. The camera itself is easy to use, the menus are simple, it even has an easy mode for the less technically savvy. The cons:the only fault i can really say about this camera are:1: the image stabiliser is, to be fair, not very good. Unless this is used with a trip pod, your videos can be pretty wobbly unless you have a very steady hand. 2: the focus can be a bit hit and miss3: the battery life4: picture is decent, but not up to scratch to be called hd. Conclusion: good entry level camera, very easy to use for the less technically minded, reasonably priced, but dont expect greatness.

Sony dcrsr37es handycam camcorder with built-in 60gb hdd (45hrs). Bought this camera in december 2009 to replace an old sony 8mm tape camera. It arrived from amazon uk to my address in spain 5 days after being despatched, i thought this to be excellent service by amazon. Good camera with good picture quality, lightweight and easy to operate. Only got two complaints, 1) the battery supplied is too small, i realized this when ordering the camera and ordered the fp-70 battery at the same time, this gives well over 5 hours of use. 2) why oh why have they done away with viewfinders, it’s impossible to see what is being recorded through the screen when using the camera in bright sunlight. Other than these niggles i would have given the camera 5 stars. Sony dcrsr37es handycam camcorder with built-in 60gb hdd (45hrs).

So small and compact, yet with all the features i need to date. Good size hdd storage, fair battery life with standard battery, larger batteries available. Copes well with back-lit subjects.

Look out for the battery, it takes a v series. . An ok product, i wasn’t expecting top of the line for the price. Image is good on a pc screen but if you view it on a hdtv you will notice the picture is very grainy. Only other problem i had was trying to order another battery. The original will only give you an hour so i was looking to order another battery. However look out if you order from amazon as when you click on the battery they have linking from this product it takes you the the h series. This camcorder takes a v series so the h battery will not fit. Unfortunatly i didn’t notice this until after i unpacted the battery, so now if i return it, i will loss 50% of the price because there is nothing wrong with the battery so they would have to sell it second hand. I just trying to order a v battery now and am having a hard time finding one.

I found this camcorder easy to use it’s nice and small and the video quality is very satisfactory for my use. It is essential for more than half zoom to use a tripod or you end up with a very shaky video.

Very good; only a few small drawbacks. I bought this to get better wildlife movies than with my cheap digital camera (which takes 30-sec clips). I’m basically very pleased with it so far. I didn’t want the “picture motion browser” software so i didn’t install it. I just connect the usb, browse to the handycam’s hard drive and copy the files onto my pc exactly as i would for any portable drive, and it works brilliantly. Mpg and play in windows media player; i discovered that basic editing (trimming) can be done easily in windows media, too. (in your start menu, go to windows media ->utilities ->windows media file editor. )in “high quality” mode, the picture is excellent on the pc, displayed at 100% size. I record in the 4:3 proportion as i prefer it to widescreen and it displays well on a regular tv and in powerpoints.

I bought this before christmas 09 to replace my trusty 10yr old panasonic which sadly and suddenly failed, despite it having cost a fortune and was classed as state of the art 10 yrs ago. This sony is fantastic and far superior. It is very small but has tremendous zoom and is so simple to use. The touch screen controls are so easy. I like the port to charge the camera directly. I loved the automatic switch on and off facility by just opening the screen, although i found it easier to hold the camera using the screen rather than the side gripstrap, as the unit is very small in my beefy mitt. There is no need to press the easy button on the side – it reduces the picture quality and there is no need to do it anyway. My 4 year old grandson used it straight out of the box. Well done sony and amazon – a fantastic purchase.

Purchased this as a family christmas present in readiness for a long haul holiday in the new year. So far i have used it over christmas and the snowy period just to try it out and it seems perfect in quality for its compact size and should be fine for the holiday with the large storage. I downloaded the results on to a disk via my computer which took a little while but again was satisfactory. The decision was made to purchase an additional battery as a back up at the same time as the camcorder was purchased, which would avoid missing any interesting shots. Would certainly recommend this model for its size( it easily fits in your pocket) and the quality and simplicity of use.
