I love it

Dan Seibel, Amazon
5 October 2006
  • Summary: The best thing about this camera is that it records audio in Dolby mode. So when I play back the mini-DVD, I get the sound out of all 5 speakers of my home theatre system! It's awesome. A+++

Great Camcorder

Young Pharaoh "Smart Engineer", Amazon
5 October 2006
  • Summary: I love this camera from Sony. The recording quality of Video is just super and with 3 mega pixel of still images, I practically didn't need to buy a digital camera! This is the all-in-one solution that I have been looking for. I payed $565 for it and it's worth every penny.

Great Video Camcorder

L. Porter, Amazon
17 January 2006
  • Summary: I spent months reading reviews to find a camcorder that would work well to record my daughter's dance recitals. This camcorder worked very well in low light and zoomed in clearly and quickly. I have recorded over 20 hours to this date, most in low light, but some in bright light.

The 403 the best DVD camcorder on the market.

Amazon Customer "5150", Amazon

  • Summary: I have to be honest I too was skeptical of this camera till I bought one in late October. This camera is amazing! Some might say well the digial camera part of it isn't that good but it is still 3.0 megapixels and you can record on DVD's!

DVD Handycam for the Novice

Sidney2014, Amazon

  • Summary: Great camera! I bought this to record my daughter's 4th birthday party and it did a fantastic job. The widescreen recording format rocks, audio is good and picture is unbelievably clear. I am comparing this to a 4 yr old JVC mini DV recorder.

Pricey but worth every penny!

D. Amini, Amazon
30 October 2005
  • Summary: This is by far the best camcorder I have ever used. I have owned a Sony digital 8 and two Canon mini DV camcorders. The Canons were a ZR and Elura. Let me just say that the Mini DV is great for editing on my Mac but the video quality would fall off in low light situations.

If you have a computer with a DVD-RW burner GET THIS CAMCORDER

dvdfan, Amazon
26 October 2005
  • Summary: I have been using the DCR-DVD403 a lot since I got it and have been using $5 mini-DVD-RW disks. When you put the disk in for the first time the camera asks if you want to format in regular mode or "VR" mode.

Buy it! Worth every cent

Odonata7, Amazon
3 October 2005
  • Summary: i previouly used a miniDV videocam. although the picture quality is good enough, transferring the footage to a disk is too much of a hassle. With DVD403 it is now a very simple step. once you finalise the mini disc, just have to transfer the files to your computer and burn them to a DVD.

The most practical camcorder

Irene Erlin, Amazon
30 September 2005
  • Summary: I used many kinds of camcorder before: Video 8, Hi8, Mini DV. I find this one is the most practical one: no rendering, no transferring. Just shoot, finalize (2 minutes only, with a touch of a button) and ready to watch and distribute among family and friends.
