Sony Handycam DCR-SR45
Compact, lightweight build; stores video to 30GB hard drive or Memory Stick Pro Duo cards; touch screen.
Barely passable standard-definition video quality; no optical image stabilization despite ultralong lens; Windows-only software.
The Sony Handycam DCR-SR45 has a good design and reasonable feature set for its price, but the video quality doesn't measure up to the rest of the package.
