Pretty Good Camcorder

Jeri Vetter, Amazon
20 January 2007
  • Summary: This is a good camera. The touch screen makes flipping throught menus very easy; instead of fumbling with button combinations, a button will come up telling you what action it will perform if you push it. I use it more for pictures than video, and the fact you can fit so many more pictures on the disc than on a card is very nice. One problem, you can't delete them unless it's on a DVD-RW. It takes pretty good pictures, with quite a few options for customization.

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.

Sanman from San Jose, Ca

LC "Sanman", Amazon
25 August 2006
  • Summary: I had this for about a month now, and I love it. Touch screen is very cool. I affixed a screen protector on it and don't have to worry about getting the screen dirty. The only draw back is that when I install a protector lens, the flash for the camera became disable, and I have to buy an accesory light/flash so I can take pictures indoor. The picture is unbelievable. The spec. is the same as SR100 and cost $300 less. Good deal.

Excellent gadget for novices who use Windows...

S. Mantena, Amazon

  • Summary: My sister had ordered this camcorder last week from an online retailer (Abe's of Maine) at a great price $580. She understands technology but she is not extremely savy about editing and handling manual controls in the camera. She planned to buy a harddisk based model but was convinced otherwise on this DVD based model because of it ease of use during post-production process. Once you finalize the DVD disk, you could just copy all the video with a click of a button.

Good camcorder if you are not serious about editing your footage

Gyaani "Ganesh Kumar Eswaran", Amazon
4 August 2006
  • Summary: This camcorder does capture good shots. But the main drawback is that it records to DVD. Initially its nice and easy to capture video and watch it on DVD instantly. It gives you instant gratification. But after capturing 4 or 5 hours of video, you will notice that your videos aren't so great as you expect it to be. Its not the fault with your camcorder. Its because all of us shoot extra footage, unwanted scenes, shakes, etc which we want to edit.

Opinión acerca de la Handycam DCR-DVD 405

MIKE 76, MercadoLibre
1 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Para mi Sony es una excelente marca, de hecho la mayoría de productos que tengo, son Sony. Cómo manifesté arriba la Sony DCR-DVD 405 tiene muy buenas opciones y la grabación es excelente, las fotos son bastante buenas, yo las comparo con una Camara Fotográfica de unos 5 Megapixeles, si no fuera por los "Contras" que manifesté, estaría 100% encantado con esta Handycam.
  • Pros: - Buen Zoom para una Handycam, - Flash para las fotos en la noche, - Fácil de manejar, - Fácil de bajar imágines y videos a la computadora., - Soporta hasta Memory Sticks de 4 Gb lo que permite grabar más de 3000 fotos.
  • Cons: - Las fotos no tienen muy buena fidelidad pues la cámara es de solo 3 mp., - Los Mini DVDs tienen poca capacidad de grabación., - No permite grabar video en el Memory Stick.

Sony sabe hacer cámaras.

rubiazul, Ciao
26 March 2008
  • Summary: LA GRAN DUDA ES EL DVD Por lo demás ésta es una muy buena cámara. Una óptica (Karl Zeiss por supuesto) superior que encuentra luz donde no hay y una comodidad de manejo excepcional. El formato DVD presenta varias ventajas como son la posibilidad de verlo en un pc o dvd directamente, la opción regrabable (llevo más de 50 sesiones en un mismo disco y sigue perfecto) y la compatibilidad.
  • Pros: Fácil manejo, buenas baterías .
  • Cons: El dvd es un buen soporte??

Buena videocámara, sin pretensiones

Gustavo F, quesabesde.com
29 August 2006
  • Excerpt: La Sony DCR DVD 405 es muy buena como videocámara, pero flaquea como cámara fotográfica. No la recomedaría a alguien que está pensando comprarla como un "combo": zapatero a tus zapatos. Compre la video cámara para hacer videos, y adquiera una cámara fotográfica en serio para hacer fotografías fijas. A pesar de los puntos en "contra", estoy satisfecho con el producto. Voy a justificar el porqué considero que no es buena como cámara fotográfica.
