[access-uk] Re: camcorders

Quite a lot of camcorders, certainly the Sony's use a touch screen
interface for some of their operation which will make some more advanced
features awkward.  However there is usually a dedicate "Record" button
to start and stop recording, or at least on the Sony's I have seen.
Also some models come with a remote control which would give you
physical access to the main trasport controls for reviewing footage.
Practically all will allow viewing through the LCD screen whilst
recording for those with some vision.  My particular Sony has an "easy
mode" option with a dedicated button to turn it on and off, this hides
most controls out of the way and sets everything to automatic which
would be a good option for a visually impaired user unused to cameras.
Camcorders are mostly pretty much the same and and are all but for the
most expensive aimed at the consumer in terms of usability and therefore
require little more than that you point it at the subject of interest,
however like most things the more care you take over factors such as
light and positioning the better the end result.
