Great camera, Terrible DVD Authoring software

You CAN move the video from the little DVD to a big one

New Jersey Mom, Amazon
8 December 2005
  • Summary: A lot of people writing reviews here seem to think that they're stuck buying expensive small cancorder-size DVD's ($20 for 3) and filling them up with 20 minutes each of high quality video.

Love it

S. George, Amazon
31 March 2005
  • Summary: This is the first camcorder I've purchased and I intentionally held off until a good DVD camcorder was available. The dcr-dvd403 is worth the wait.
