Cool Zoom Feature!!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sony DCR-SX45 Handycam Camcorder (Blue) (Electronics)
I haven't used this camera yet except to test it out. I have just upgraded from 35mm to digital. I really like that it takes a media card instead of film. I like that it attaches to my tripod and that I don't have to buy a new tripod. I like the zoom feature. I stood in my kitchen window and was able to use the camera to zoom out onto the street and see car license plates up close enough to read. I like that I can switch from picture mode to video really quickly. I like being able to turn on this camera quickly by just opening the side video panel it automatically comes on and to turn it off just close the side panel. The one thing I don't like is the self timer isn't long enough only 10 seconds. I would have liked it to have been at least 30 seconds. My primary purpose for buying this camera was to take pictures and be able to take as many as I like without worry about if I have enough film.

I am looking for a camcorder and this would be my first. What exactly is the self timer? I too am looking for a camcorder and camera all in one.
