Summary: Extremely easy to use. Price on Amazon was terrific vs. Circuit City Offering. Like the way you can view immediately in the DVD player. Picture quality in sunny conditions is not good and grainy digitial picture taking.
Summary: I absolutely love this DVD Camcorder. It's so super small and user friendly I can't explain. It is very simple to use. My only complaint and frustration is that my Sony VGC-RA710G VAIO PC and the USB software for the Sony DCR-DVD7 don't get along. I thought for sure a Sony would be compatible with a Sony, especially since both are less than one year old.
Summary: This camcorder is very easy to use, light, and takes good video as well as decent stills. My only complaint would be the disk length - the DVD still only holds 30 minutes of video. I have found some that hold 60, but only on the Web, not in stores.
