Sony's new camcorder takes mobile DVD recording to new places

Great high definition video camcorder for the price

 

I bought this camcorder to replace my Digital MiniDV Panasonic.  Prior to that, I had Hi-8 Sony. One of reasons to purchase this camcorder is that I got a price for only $370 on Sams Clus online auction.  This HD camcorder is cheaper than my original...

High definition video and quality images. Great stabilization

Lack editing features software.  Must burn on DVD if playing on different DVD players
