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.
Summary: I am really impressed with this camera. Great quality! I was researching these for a while and although this is a relatively older camera (over 2 yo) it has higher quality (3 mp) than the current ones unless you spend $$$$ for the high def ones.
