Sony DCR-DVD203 Review

3 October 2005
  • 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
  • Cons: Expensive; poor still quality

Easy Camcorder
17 June 2005
  • 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

  • Excerpt: : эта модель очень похожа на свою «старшую сестру» dvd403, однако у нее микрофонные решетки расположены на передней панели и отсутствует встроенная вспышка.
  • Pros: : хорошее качество изображения. Возможность получения объемного звука. Возможность записи видео с другого устройства. Удобство управления.
  • Cons: : индивидуальных недостатков модели пока не выявлено. «Видовые» недостатки — те же, что и у всех остальных DVD-камер.

  • Summary: Der DVD-Camcorder bietet gute Ausstattung zu einem fairen Preis. Nur mit widrigen Verhältnissen und Standbild-Fotos kommt das kleine Gerät nicht so gut zurecht.
  • Pros: gute Videoqualität, reaktionsschnell, 16:9-LCD-Display
  • Cons: körnige Videoqualität bei widrigen Lichtverhältnissen, schlechte Standbild-Qualität, kein Kameralicht oder Blitz, es fehlt ein Windfilter für das Mikrofon
