Sony Handycam DCR - DVD405

foxeffect, Ebay

  • 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. I also like the fact that you can add lens filters and other accessories like an extra light or an infrared illuminator for events in total darkness.

Not an issue

Digitally Impaired, Amazon
18 January 2007
  • Summary: This is my first camcorder which I purchased based on the reviews here at Amazon. A few of the reviews complained that the small touch screen would smear after touching it with fingers. Not an issue. Just a light touch with the fingernail does the trick and - no smear. The free software that ships with the camcorder is good to get started, but just barely.

Better than expected!

  • Summary: I did a lot of research on camcorders before making this purchase. This was my first purchase, after using a hand-me-down Mini-DV Sony camcorder for the past 8 years. The main thing that drew me to this camcorder (besides the Sony name), was the Low-Light quality. I have 5 young children, and I knew it would be used for a lot of recitals and inside programs. I was not disappointed!! The quality is fabulous. I love the lense, too. The picture is very clear.

A GREAT Camcorder For The Money!!!

Alex, Amazon
25 November 2006
  • Summary: I shopped and shopped around looking for the Best Mini DVD Camcorder. After much searching, I came across the Sony 405. This is a terrific camcorder for the money. It is very easy to use and offers many great features. The camera is very small and great for travel. I haven't had this camera for a long time but for the time I have had it, I am very pleased. I originally wasn't planning on spending the money but when I checked Amazon's prices it was worth it.

Sony dvd405, decent product, bad sony service

A. Watson, Amazon

  • Summary: I ordered this from amazon. Got it quick. Had problems from the begining. Turns out there was a issue with the cd drive and it destroyed several mini-dvd-r's. Sony support was horrible, non english speaking people, went thru there troubleshooting steps with them on the phone and ate a few more dvd-r's to conclude the camera was broke which I already new.

Are you using the DVD405?

L. Zeleznik, Amazon
31 October 2006
  • Summary: All of the reviews that degrade the video quality of this unit, must be visually challenged. The only problem that I had was audio noise. The on board microphone captured wind noise at a high degree. Simple solution, I bought an auxiliary microphone with wind screen. The video quality from my unit is exceptional. I am not a novice.
