Excerpt: The Sony Handycam DCR-DVD203 DVD Camcorder features a built-in 4-channel microphone / 12x Zoom Carl Zeiss Lens / 480x Digital Zoom / Full Range Auto/Manual Focus System / Auto Manual Exposure and more. The 2.7 LCD screen swivels and adjusts to optimize the viewing angle for easy recording. You can capture professional quality digital video and images with enhanced color and clarity with the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens.
Pros: Good build quality, picture and night vision.
Conclusion: Convenience with a touch of 21 st Century home entertainment technology is the message here. The DCR-DVD203 is a very good, easy-to-use camcorder that lets you record in a variety of DVD formats so you can easily playback videos and stills on your TV or computer. It has very good battery life, is very compact and easy to tote around. And I will say this again–videos shot on DVD are not as good as those shot with a high-quality MiniDV camcorder.
Pros: Compact camcorder that records multiple DVD formats; Dolby Digital surround-ready
Excerpt: The Sony DCR-DVD203 is this year’s mid-level DVD camcorder offering from Sony. While we loved almost everything about its more advanced sibling, the DCR-DVD403, the wunderkind genes were not passed down the line. With disappointing video performance in both bright and low light, this camcorder must rely on its ease of use to get by.
Pros: -LCD, -Ease of Use, -Automatic Control, -Zoom Toggle
Cons: -Video Performance, -Low Light, -Manual Control
