Summary: i am very pleased with it. The biggest issue I have with it is that it doesn't have a firewire or usb port to upload video to the computer (you have to use the dvd in a dvd drive to get it on the computer). Also, it does not include any software (except nero for burning discs) to edit anything. On to the good, the zoom, image stability and touch screen are incredible.

Summary: I'm a paranormal investigator.I like to try as many different cameras and videocameras and other types of audio and video equipment I can get my hands on.When you're attempting communication with spirits,you'll need a Sony nightshot or other type of infra-red video and still cam.The Sony DCR-DVD 105 is as easy as it gets,in regards to using the camera and viewing the footage after.Then,just finalize your disc in the camera,and you can view that disc on any blue-ray,dvd...
Summary: I bought this camera the day my daughter was born over 2 1/2 yrs ago. I paid about 250 for it but the advertised price was 450. I guess it was on sale. Still not sure how that happened but no complaints here. The zoom is great, the dvd quality and video is great. The battery life can go through about 3 dvd's (which are only 30 mins a piece) and a little more depending on if you use the lcd screen or the eye piece.
Summary: I bought this for my Daughter for a present so she could record my Grandson's growing up. I like the compact size and generally easy use. I guess the only dislike I would have is that there is so much that can be done with all this new technology and i find it confusing sometimes.
Summary: Hi. I purchased the Sony 105 after reading many reviews for it (and other camcorders.) I also handled some camcorders at BestBuy (NOTE: Amazon price is MUCH cheaper than BestBuy - and BestBuy won't match the price.) Being a newbie to the dvd camcorder and having a very low mechanical aptitude, I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to figure it out. I was very surprised at how easy the Sony is to use.
Summary: We purchased Sony DCR DVD105 in preparation for our first born. The camcorder had all the features that we wanted and was very affordable. Overall this camcorder offered great value, and we have great videos of our new born. However, if you want your video files to be transferred to a computer for editing or to post it on the Internet, forget about it! This camcorder does not come with USB port to connect directly to your computer.
Summary: Sony sent me this camcorder for free for playing the Wheel Watchers Club daily giveaway. For a free Handycam, you can't do much better than this. I have good news and bad news for those who are purchasing this camera. First, the bad news... My biggest gripe about this camera is that the microphone picks up the recording head of the DVD laser. So when you're watching the DVD on your TV it sounds like a woodpecker in the background, like another reviewer mentioned.
got what I asked for but...............................

Summary: For what this camera was it was fine. My biggest disappointment is that I did not do my homework. I am in video 1 at school. We were able to edit final copies on the computer. I bought a DVD camera thinking that it was a better camera and did not pay attention to the details. This camera can do what it says it can do but could not do what I expected. I should have gone with the cheaper model because now I am disappointed.
Summary: I love the camera itself. The only problem I am having is putting it on a dvd. I have a machine that I can hook the camera up to the tv and dub it straight to a dvd only can't figure out how to do it, but I will.
