Summary: I have several Sony Camcorders, However this is my favorite one of all.The Nightshot plus is great even if you are using for those Paranormal type investigations. The DVD makes it easy to take out of the camera and load right into into any DVD player or PC with a DVD Drive.There is no touchscreen...
Summary: Sony DCR DVD-100 - Great Camcorder. Works well - no comments. In the excellent kit bag, charger, video cable and two mini-disc DVD-R. The only problem - software. CD with software included was not, and in the public domain without it. 'll Have to buy the disc from the company Sony separately.
Summary: I love this camera sooo much! However, the viewing angle has become a very big problem in that it does not pan out wide enough for a lot of shots. Otherwise I think it is a great buy for the price. Another thing to not though is the ability of it to take still photos.
Summary: Ok, Ok, I got duped into this buy due to "improving, but degrading" technology. I have been using Digital-8, and I wanted a new mini-DV, but this year (2004) Sony decreased the chip (imaging sensor) size to 1/6" in the mini dv tape models.
Summary: Sony DVD Handycam has great picture quality, if all you want is to film and playback on your DVD player. I wanted to make a compilation DVD but The "ImageMixer Ver.1.5 for Sony DVD Handycam" sucks. I bought another Movie editor but it cannot read the MPG created by the Sony software.
Summary: One star is not exactly right because I never was able to try this camcorder. I was not able to find the discs for this ANYWHERE locally. The stores told me even SONY has them backordered. I had wanted a disc that could be re-recorded so I could play with the camcorder as I learned.
Summary: I've purchased DVD200 from Sony in Nov'03. This is how I feel so far. Pros.. 1) The clarity and resolution are really good. 2) It is very easy to play back on TV Cons.. 1) Mic picks up noise from spinning disc 2) 1M digital camera is simpy useless (only if you never saw a dig camera, then you may...
Summary: It is one of "the easiest to use and best with the features" camcorder. I strongly recommend it. There are different recording speeds so you can record on one disc up to 1 or 2 hours. Everything is great ! Excellent picture quality. The only drawback is quality of still shots.
Summary: We bought this camcorder just before Christmas. We did not plan on buying it so i didnt have time to research it before we purchased. The reason we went with the DVD100 is that my hubby,who is electronics illiterate, loved the idea of instant playback on our DVD players.
