Reviews & Research

CNET Editors' reviewGood

  • THE GOOD

    Simple operation; 60x zoom lens; 80GB hard drive; small.

  • THE BAD

    "Soft, noisy video; noticeable fringing on subjects; image stabilization is electronic only; no mic or headphone jacks."

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    "Sony's Handycam DCR-SR68 (and larger-capacity SR88) offers up ample storage and a megazoom lens at a reasonable price; one look at the standard-definition video, though, and you might regret not spending a bit more for an HD model."

The best camcorder I have ever owned! I LOVE IT!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is the best camcorder I have ever owned. I bought this about 6 months ago. It records good even in low light. It has pretty good battery time and if you go to the sony website you can order battries with longer life. This camera is light weight and easy to pack around. It taks pictures also. It has an 80GB internal hard drive and removeable storage as well. It is really easy to get the videos burned to dvds as well. You won't go wrong with this camera, plus it won't break the bank.

Sony Handycan DCR-SR68

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very small and easy to use, I use this to film my Boys at football and wrestling it is perfect for the fast action. Has a big hard drive so it can hold many hours. This is the third handycam purchased and is the best by far. The battery last longer than handycam purchased in the past, the zoom feature is very nice to capture the close up action. You will not be sorry if you purchase this unit.

Owesome!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

It was one of my best purchases, my used(almost new)camcorder is in excellent from every point of view (I mean usage), it has not any scratches, no dents, and work perfectly. In the market this product costed around $350-$$400 and I bought for just $170.

In other words, it is so far one of my best purchases made through E-bay.
