There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The camera is solid with plenty of adjustments, and the sound is really good on its internal 5.1 mic. The most impressive are the auto settings. They produce great results when you're in a hurry and just need to shoot. One suggestion you need two accessories an extra battery at least the NP70 and most importantly a uv or neutral density filter basically smooth window glass but it does keep the inside lens clean and my UV clears a little haze. A big memory stick pro duo is handy but not necessary.
I personally believe that this is the best consumer level camcorder out there. I like it better than the canons I tried but they were also good and certainly not bad choices.
With great low light performance an immense disk drive plus it's ability to use the new fast memory stick duo line you don't have a lot to worry about even if you can fill up the disk which should be empty when you start your day you can switch ove to the menory stick and keep on shooting.
Some complain that the camera is too big or too small I disagree. My wife uses it comfortably and has tiny hands mine are huge, I could palm a basketball when I was 11. Botyh of us find the camera quite usable thus the ergonomics are good. It is a bit heaver than some but not a lot and it is much steadier than the real lightweights.
It produces great color and sound, sharp focus, and very good low light performance. I don't hesitate to give it a hardy recommendation.
Im not a professional when it comes to recording video - BUT I have owned several other camcorders (and currently own this one) and it is very easy to tell the difference between them.
The Sony HDR-SR11 is my favorite camcorder, I wish I owned three of them.
What I like about the Sony HDR-SR11:
Video quality is EXCELLENT
Full HD (AVCHD)
Decent size HD (60GB)
I dont use the audio tbh so I cant really critique it, but as most camcorders it does pick up wind noise (the internal/built in mic)... I replace my audio in my editing software (fyi) so sound quality from a mic doesnt influence my opinion. Although I do believe this camcorder does have a jack for an external mic if that interests you.
The HD-SR11 also records fairly clear video in low light situations as well, I compared this between MANY camcorders (again 2009) at Fry's and the Sony HD-SR11 was by far the BEST in low light conditions... it also had the best quality video of any there.
It is just a VERY NICE camcorder, FAR BETTER then the newer Sony handy cams (or whatever they are called) - see my other reviews, in my opinion the newer Sony camcorders (again see my reviews forgot their name/model numbers) are HORRIBLE!
So thats about it, ask a question if youd like Ill try to answer. As far as I know this model has been discontinued I bought mine in 2009 from Amazon and got a great price.
I love this camcorder
Works good in low light (not noticeably overly grainy like most)
HD storage + expandable storage (I believe via SD card)
Has an external Mic input
GREAT quality video - very nice quality, very "high definition" - delineated, crisp AND NATURAL looking (not overly saturated colors, or "off looking" colors ie whites looking yellowish or overly white, dull colors looking bright etc), very realistic looking video just like "the naked eye" sees it - accurate representation/reproduction (being 0's & 1's) of what you recorded, NICE!
I also own two Canon VIXIA HF R400 HD 53x Advanced Zoom Camcorder's as well and they are MUCH nicer then the "newer line" of Sony's, but again in my opinion not as nice as this model (HD-SR11) - nowhere near as nice, video quality being the main factor, but tbh considering their price < $200 they work GREAT (and have an external mic input as well if that interests you), definitely good stuff right there just not as quality as the Sony HD-SR11's video (again VERY nice quality, accurate, clear, natural, etc)

I hope this one helps
happy video recording
