The biggest advantage is administrative time reduction!

G. Pat, Amazon
20 February 2004
  • Summary: This is the camera of my dreams, since I have lost a lot of time administering the data captured from camcorders and cameras. Now, this camera offered to me a way to record directly into an unviversally accepted media! I loved it! Secondly, the image quality is indeed very good.

Video made easier

Amazon
20 February 2004
  • Summary: Sony's DCR-DVD300 is my first digital camcorder. After using a JVC VHS-C camcorder for 8+ years, I did a lot of research, which I highly recommend, and finally decided to purchase the DVD300. But since it was a brand new model, it was very hard to find reviews about it.

Tech Support/Winders XP

Lawrence T. Bennett, Amazon
20 February 2004
  • Summary: Most (if not all) the other reviews discuss the pros and cons of the camera. I'll quckly agree with them, and get it over: Great camera, excellent quality movies, needs a bigger battery (but then, doesn't EVERYTHING?). Love the camera's features. I use a Gateway laptop, with Winders XP Pro (SP2).

Beware Other DVD brands

J. Brown, Amazon

Great little camcorder. Disc's are overpriced.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: This is the 1st camcorder that I have ever owned. I like the ease of use and all the neat features. I purchased a flash, it really helps the still photos. The only complant is, the mini discs are overpriced and hard to find.

cheap dvd disc that works on dcrdvd300

Courtney Huynh, Amazon
20 February 2004
  • Summary: I just wanted people to know that you can use a non brand name disc instead of the costly sony ones. I buy mine at shop4tech.com it only cost 3.60 each instead of the 8.00 ones at the stores and sony.com . just search for mini dvd for camcorders and they have three brands to choose from.
