I can have it all on DVD without converting formats AND use my carry-ons.
6 April 2012
Summary: I bought this camcorder used to phase out my Sony DVC camcorder for two reasons. One, part of it doesn't work anymore, and two, the new one records directly to DVD instead of digital video cassettes, which requires converting formats before I can do anything with it. In addition to that, the camcorder allows me to connect all my carry-ons such as FM receivers and external microphones without a mod, as the other camcorder needed a mod done to allow me to use these.
HAVEN'T USED IT MUCH AS OF YET BUT EXPECT GREAT THINGS

Summary: I PUSCHASE THIS SONY HANDY CAM AND THOUGHT THAT IT WAS A TERRIFIC BUY FOR THE MONEY AND THAT THE ITEM IS ALSO TERRIFIC I WOULD PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE LIKE THIS IF EVER I MAY NEED ONE SET UP AN USUAGE OF THIS CAMERA WAS VERY EASY AND EASY TO UNDERSTAND I AM GOING TO USE THIS CAMERA ON A CRUISE IN MAY THAT I AM TAKING HOPE TO GET SOME REAL NICE PICTURES
Summary: This camcorder is really a great one. I do paranormal investigating and it has all the features I need for it. I was not sure when I got it if it would be as good as the newer versions but it is and some things on it are better.
Summary: I bought this camcorder to use for recording those special moments with my new grandbabies. Considering I have never used a camcorder before, this one was less challenging than I had anticipated. It was received in great condition, all accessories were included, it was fully functional. short of wishing I had a received a virtual "hands on lesson", I would highly recommend this product to not only the inexperienced but to anyone looking for a camcorder.
Summary: I had the experience of see the footage and versatility of the identical camera purchased by my son 3 years back. After treking it to Iraq and back in the Military on two tours of duty, it was evident this video camera would do just about anything someone wanted to do. Having been both a semi-pro photographer most of my life as well as doing sports videography work with a Canon L2 (Hi8, high priced) video camera, I was extremely impressed by a camera that originally cost...
Very nice product. Very convinient and easy to use.

Summary: For a home user like me the DVD201 camcorder of Sony is ideal since it provides a very friendly menu, high standard resolution and compact size and weight. Ideal for home or outside shooting we have spent already hours of school activities and family gatherings. Brilliant ratio between prize and quality. It has some options that more recent models do not have (connectivity IN/OUT AV and S/Video that can be used as an external DVD burner for Hi8 old type camcorders).
