Sony Handycam DCR-SR85 Review
With a 60GB internal hard drive, the DCR-SR85 (MSRP $549.99) has the largest storage capacity of Sony\’s entry level standard definition camcorders. Replacing last year\’s DCR-SR42, Sony added a larger hard drive, a slightly revamped design, and a 100% increase in effective pixel count. The step-down model, the Sony DCR-SR65, is nearly identical to its big sister in every way–except for the smaller, 40GB hard drive under the hood and the $100 cheaper price tag. With the DCR-SR85, Sony delivers a camcorder with decent video performance and a good amount of settings and connectivity options. The NightShot mode and Sony-proprietary accessory shoe, along with the huge 60GB hard drive, are the main features that will earn the DCR-SR85 numerous fans.
