Summary: I wasn't paying attention to the zoom (10x) when I ordered this product because I was blind sided by all of the great reviews. I'm not sure if I got a bad camcorder, but I was not satisfied with this purchase. The pictures were horrible and the video recordings were mediocre to say the least.
Summary: The Sony handycam DCR-DVD405 is a mini-dvd format camcorder with the option to record onto Sony's memory stick pro or pro duo. I personally have only used this camera a couple of times and was impressed by it's ease of use and features such as nightshot.
