Question

No internal memory?

So this camcorder does not internal memory and you must buy a memory card separately right? How much time is available per GB for recording. I want to be able to recording a couple of hours as a time. Thank you.

It depends on the quality setting - see the chart on the User Guide, page 56 for full details:

http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DCRSX45_EN_ES.pdf

Based on the chart, for two hours on LP an 8GB card would be sufficient, however in HQ you would need a 16GB card.
