Sony Handycam HDR-XR350V Camcorder Review



The Handycam HDR-XR350V is a mid-range HD camcorder from Sony that offers solid video performance, but is low on manual controls. The $999 price tag of the HDR-XR350V may sound steep, but a lot of that cost goes into the 160GB hard drive that is built into the camcorder's right side.
