Comments about Sony DCR-SR82 60GB Hard Disk Drive Camcorder:
For the job for which it was selected, it had to patch into a Mackie 1642-VLZ Pro mixer for front room mike sound, from a rear A/V Control Room. Prior cam corders had such input. This unit does not. Sad state of so-called high tech, for almost a grand! Designers that ignore what came before, deserve to go down to the dust bin of history.
