Great Camcorder

banisiaur, Ebay
10 February 2011
  • Summary: After MUCH research, trial and error, and actually trying 3 other video cameras, this is the one we stuck with. We even went to some local stores that had cameras on display, loaded in a blank dvd, shot some footage, and compared them at home on our 56" HD DLP TV. Clarity of picture, ease of use, quick and easy transfer to pc and burning to dvd, quick and clear focusing....all these were high priority when we shopped around.

A+ camcorder

Sammie Green III, Amazon
3 March 2009
  • Summary: Hey i purchased this camcorder used in great condition. The imagery plays back sharp as hell. I was nervous with some of the reviews here @ Amazon so i went online and researched for several weeks. Finally manned up and took a chance. Only thing i can see anyone havin a problem with is the battery life. Of course the media is short on hq but they have come out with a dual layer disc.

EXTREMELY PLEASED

R. Bishop, Amazon
9 July 2008
  • Summary: Overall the 508 performs just as advertised and I'm very happy with it. It is compatible with several different 8cm DVD discs giving you different options for recording. I did not realize a memory stick was required for still pictures, so I had to make an additional purchase after receiving the camera - - not sure if the advertisement mentioned it. The menu and touch screen work very well, making for easy set up and review.

Excellent Home Handycam...Avoid Low Light Situation

Davio Green Bay, WS, Amazon
31 December 2007
  • Summary: I am a gadget guy that wants to get the best bang for the buck. Loyal to Sony for generations and after many hours of intense internet research I have narrowed down my options to three formats, three top cams. MiniDv, MiniDVD, HDD. MiniDv has proven to execute clear video performance for years now. Editing capabilities are simple because it uses a very flexible format known to many editing programs.

Flaw with the DCR-DVD505...?

PRO, Amazon
14 December 2007
  • Summary: With Sony's introduction of the 508 I am now convince that they had issues with the 505 model. I purshase the 505 model about two years ago and after one year, the touch screen stop responding to a touch. Now the camera is useless to me as it refuse to take still and video shots. To add more pain, it was past its warrenty period and after I contacted sony, they suggest it be shipped to their factory for repairs and will cost several hundred dollars for it to be fixed.

Bad battery charging

benchmark, Amazon
5 December 2007
  • Summary: DVD508's battery charging connection is a bad design, after 2-month of using, the plug is not connected well, way too loose. We have to buy a separate battery charger to solve the problem.

Excellent Picture, Easy To Use

M "missymom", Amazon
24 November 2007
  • Summary: This camcorder is easy to use and the playback quality is clear and sound quality was good. There was no hissing. I am not tech savy at all. The manual is easy to understand. I had the camera charged and was shooting and watching videos soon after I took it out of the box. I used only Sony dvds to save myself any grief with possibly not being able to use nonsony products. Also, the dvd+rw played in our non Sony players.
