Summary: Great camera very light user friendly. Ibought this cam about 3-4 weeks ago and the resolution and colors are remarkable. I have no complaints about it. Has a stand that you can use when downloading to your pc.
Summary: This videocam has excellent picture and sound quality. The basic instructions are easy to understand and implement, and because all you have to do is take the dvd out of the camera and put it into a dvd player ( including a playstation 2 ), it makes for ease of use. You really won't believe the quality. The camera itself is easy to hold in your hand and because it looks like a cd player, you won't have to worry about theft as much. The cost is very reasonable.
Summary: Ok I've had this two years also, it's still working, but I haven't used it so very much yet. It's now been on a cruise and to a couple air shows. It does take good video, I've not tried it in still picture mode because I have a way better kodak camera for that kind of thing. It's handily small, not horribly weighty and it's easy enough transferring the data from the camcorder to your computer. I will say however it is TERRIBLE in video taking at the air shows.
Summary: Had this little guy for almost 2 years.... Then one day it just wouldn't turn on. Sony wants over 200 dollars just to look at it and the problem is probably a 10 cent resistor. Also the still photos are terrible. However the videos were good though though sometimes the sound of the spinning disk is recorded and can be heard on playback. I can't help but wonder if there are better cameras out there at a better price.
This Great Camera is ahead of it's time, and overlooked.

Summary: 2 years and many great movies later, I still love it. All the grandkids have their own special movies with slide shows and music to boot. I use Nero software along with the Picture Package. So what if the mini DVDs are only 30 minutes? That's a good place for a break, or another chapter. NO dull movies here! Now Grandma gets invited to all the kid's events so she can make a movie of it.
Summary: I bought it becouse its a new design. its a handy, nice, new for most people. I like most about it, becouse its a DVD handycam, n small, easy to use. I don't have any dislike about it. but i couldnot get a bag for it. ( i mean same like it, small n nice bag ) Thanx.
Summary: I originally bought a DCR DVD7 last summer when I was going to be travelling and needed something not too expensive, but useful. I have since bought another because it is so great. It far surpasses any camcorder/still camera I have ever owned. It records directly to DVD's which are then put in my player at home. It fits in my purse, but is not too small that it will get "lost" in there.
Summary: Lower resolution that even the cheapest Mini-DV, and nearly impossible to edit properly since scenes are stored on DVD. DVD is NOT recommended if you want to do any editing of any kind. See ANY Mini-DV instead.
Summary: I bought these for my family and they love them! They are much easier to use versus their predecessors and the batteries and accessories can be bought almost anywhere. A++ for Sony on this terrific product.
