Basically my Panasonic camcorder is completely dead, can't get it to turn on even with the power supply going into it. So I took it back to the shop I bought it from, and luckily it did have a two year warranty on it, so they are further investigating the situation. I was then given a loan camera, which is this Sony Handycam DCR-SR32E camcorder, it isn't the best camera, and it doesn't record in high definition, but it was still nice of the shop to lend me this camera whilst they fix mine.

This camera does have some nice features, a 'Nightshot Plus' mode which makes it into a night vision camera with a small infra red light on the front, you can actually shoot in pitch black and things will be visible which are under 2-3 metres away. The zoom is quite good, in fact better than my Panasonic, it is a 40x optical zoom with a telephoto macro. There is one effect mode, which literally turns the video into a 'sepia' tone which is nothing special, but I suppose when this camera was released it was quite a big thing.

It was a very long winded process getting the video from the Hard Disk Drive on the camera onto my laptop. The camcorder does not take normal SD cards, but Pro Duo cards whatever they are. However there is 30gb of in built memory space, which is quite fascinating. I had to put the camera on the 'Handycam Station' dock, plug the dock into a power supply, and then use a USB cable to attach the dock to my computer. I am too use to just using SD cards to be honest. The camera has lens optics by Carl Zeiss.

The test shots in this video are nothing special, and as I said they weren't shot in high definition, so that is why there are pillar bars either side of the video.
