Sony DCR DVD201E Camcorder

AdvantagesWidescreen mode

Disadvantagesslow access to dvd, no separate memory card slot

"...mode is beyond me. However Sony have finally done it and its great. I now record footage and play it back on my TV in the correct proportions without any of that faffing about with changing the aspect mode on your TV. Also my wife doesn't appear stretched on TV thus removing all talk about 'Does my bum look big on this TV' Theres a x10 optical zoom which is more than sufficient for the average user.

READ THIS BEFORE YOU BUY !!!!

AdvantagesWide screen mode, image quality, DVD media

This method of recording is so convenient it’s untrue. The DVD’s can record for 30mins at standard quality mode.

a great little camcorder

Advantageswrites straight to mini dvds so can be played on most dvd players and computers with a minimum of work

Disadvantagestwo recording modes vr mode and video mode but only video mode is easily played back and vr mode is slightly easier to use

"the sony handycam is the first camcorder i have ever owned so i felt it was important to find one that was going to last for a long time with all the technological advances that there are at the moment and i think that this is the one to do it. it has standard modes as well as widescreen modes, and it records straight onto mini dvd. the disadvantages are that the dvds only last for 30 mins on short play mode although there is long play mode which ..."
