Sony seems intent on dominating the High Definition camcorder market before any other company has even joined in. Although Canon has released a competitor to Sony's top-of-the-range professional HVR-Z1 (the Canon XL-H1), there's nothing at all to compete...
Bottom line If you've used the HDR-HC1E or Sony's more professional HDV models for any length of time, you can't help feeling disappointed by the HDR-HC3E's lack of prosumer features. All that video quality, with so little user control. But then there's the price. Wi...

Bad Compared to the HDRHC1, this camcorder disappoints Control dial rather than the superior ring found on the HC1, UX1 and SR1 No mic or phone jacks make this a pointandshoot camcorder...
Bottom line The Sony HDR-HC3 will undoubtedly prove to be one of the most popular camcorders this year. Last year’s HDR-HC1 was both critically praised and sought after by consumers. The first consumer HD camcorder for under $2000, Sony had a difficult task des...
