Remark : There are new handycams coming out every year with added new
technologies / features. The size of hard disk has increased from 30 GB to
120 GB in HDR-SR12 and 240 GB in HDR-XR520 and
HDR-XR520V (with GPS).
Transferring your favorite videos to computer HDD with back up is recommended
because it can be accessed very quickly. Large capacity HDD in video camera
is also subjected to risk in case of camera dropped or shocked severely even
though protection is already incorporated. Another risk is camera lost or stolen.
It is therefore necessary to save your videos into computer HDD or external
HDD regularly.
