every version is bound to


every version is bound to get better and or cheaper, so I cannot say, no first hand experience with that model… but the sr11 (I do have the sr12) should be able to write straight to memory stick… my sr 12 certianly does…. good to know the camera will still work if the hard drive fails… and there in lies the secrete to negotiating a fair price on a used one… hard drives do wear out, and so a hard drive based camera has a more limited lifespan than say.. solid state….. just make sure whatever you do buy has a mic jack and manual controls that are easy to use.
