The £99.99 Offer has been posted, but now free case offer added.

The new SDR-S15 is a stylish model with an ultra-compact, go-anywhere design. It offers a small size, light weight and superb mobility made possible by SD/SDHC Memory Cards, letting you shoot video with the same casual ease and carry-about convenience they enjoy with small digital camcorders. For occasions when in the past it may have seemed a bit awkward to pull out a camcorder, such as on short outings or business trips, the SDR-S15 is ideal.

Quick Start function
The Quick Start function allows the SDR-S15 camcorder to begin recording just 0.6 second from the time the LCD is opened and this around a third of the time that it takes for a camcorder that records onto DVD discs to start, making it easier to catch those special moments that come with no warning. All in clear MPEG2 DVD quality.

missed out on the case
bought this last week without the case

This or the Sanyo HD cam?
#4
This one is not HD though... video resolution is 704 x 576 and picture is 640 x 480

Sanyo has 5 X Optical zoom this has 10 X Zoom....
#5
been looking at this too, the review by which magazine says the picture quality is poor, just had a look at the sanyo and that plays back jerky due to frame rate. i suppose for £100 its not bad, still not ruled it out.

I bought the S26 which I think has the same resolution and am very unhappy about the video quality.
For Youtube or playback thru a monitor it's fine but put it up on a 32" Samsung and it's very poor. I tried taking it back to the shop assuming that there was something wrong with it and they just said 'tough, sd cards aren't as good as DV tapes, it's working fine'. Cheers! That will be in the local paper or ebay as soon as I get round to it lol.
The S26 does have an awesome 70x Optical zoom which is amazing and is small enough to slip in a pocket.
The battery only lasts about 45mins too, you will need an extra one at least.
Still, good price for the quality. (mine cost nearly £200!)

Difficult isn't it? I can't justify paying more than £100 really, but the quality of the the camera's in this price range seems to be always lacking in some way...

I got about a dozen of these for student use awhile back, they're brilliant, keep it in low compression mode and the quality is excellent

And take into account the huge file sizes.

Bought a JVC full HD camcorder a few months back and the file sizes it generates just make it impractical. Super powerful pc required to edit it, transfer rates to get it on the pc take ages. Great picture quality on the big screen but everything takes a long time. Used it twice and it's sitting in the box now.

Bought a Panny SDR SW20 from Ebay and use it all the time. Pure convenience, shockproof, water resistant and easy to work the video footage afterwards.

I think these camcorders are great for everyday use.

For anyone looking for a good camcorder it may be worth trying Currys/PCworld customer services to see if the Sony HDR-SR10E is available at any of their stores. I bought one last week and was told by a Currys member of staff that a few were available around the country ie Hull,Bolton,Cambridge,Farnborough,Mansfield,Gloucester.
They are on clearance and may be ex display.Priced at £149.97. Product Code 808260.
