Expert review by: Andy Shaw (

Sony HandyCam DVD202E


A digital video camera that records directly to DVD and removes your PC from the video-editing process

This isn't really a camera for the absolute beginner, but it would be a perfect upgrade for a videographer who finds themselves with shelves full of tapes they struggle to find the time to edit.
