Summary: Both reviews I've read on this product seem scattered and incoherent, so let me see if I can clear-up some of the misconceptions about Sony's DVD camcorder 101. I've had mine for 6 months now and am getting used to it.
Summary: I just borrowed my friend's Sony 101 to covert my analog footage to DVD and I thought that it worked great. After converting all my old analog home movies to DVD I thought I would take it out for a spin and see how well it records overall.
Summary: I have now had this camera for a couple of months having used analogue camcorders in the past. It is lightweight, easy to use and produces high quality videos. Irritatingly, Sony only includes a DVD/R which is permanent. The replacement discs are expensive (around £10 each for 30 minutes).
