  • Summary: I bought this camcorder in hopes to free myself from digital8 tapes and upgrade to better video quality. I did free myself from tapes but after reviewing the footage captured by the DVD405 I was very disappointed to find out how bad the picture quality was..I would compare the video quality to a vhs-c camcorder..I think maybe I had too much expectation from the DVD405 but I felt I took a step backward when I bought this camcorder.

  • Excerpt: Sony DCR-DVD405 Strengths: Easy to use, good picture quality,good design,touch screen, memory stick slot for still picture. Weaknesses: should include minidvd media to get started Summary: Overall I am very pleased with this purchase, bought it just for $648 thru pricgrabber (beach camera). Before decided to purchase this, I'd been considering another model from sony which is DCR-DVD505. however the differences between 405 and 505 were minim.
  • Pros: High Quality product
  • Cons: Its ugly
