Typical DVD camcorder

  • Summary: Lower resolution that even the cheapest Mini-DV, and nearly impossible to edit properly since scenes are stored on DVD. DVD is NOT recommended if you want to do any editing of any kind. See ANY Mini-DV instead.

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder and have exchanged it three times. The first one I bought before I even had it a full week broke and had an error message I called sony and they informed me I would have to send it in to be fixed! Uh, NO, I think I'll take a new one, thanks! made the mistake of exchanging instead of just returning! the second camera had audio problems which, come to the third to find out that this is just the sound "non"-quality of this camcorder.

  • Excerpt: My uncle owns this camera and having spent 3 months "teaching" him on its usage, i now feel qualified to comment. Positives ------------ Picture quality is absolutely fantastic. Colours are sharp and focus is 9/10 quick and correctful of human error. Sound quality also excellent which is remarkable given the size of the camera and apparent smallness of the audio recording device.
  • Pros: Picture and sound quality
  • Cons: Fiddly buttons and menu system
