Expert review by : Denis Gallagher (

Sony DCR-DVD602


Good value, impressive 20X optical zoom lens

Ordinary still image resolution, substantially larger than some other Sony DVD camcorders

Sony's DCRDVD602E is an easy-to-use, robustly built DVD camcorder that should satisfy anyone wanting to shoot video to view on the home TV.

Fast Delivery, unsealed box though


If it wasn't for the seal on the item I would have given them a 5 for an overall rating.

Fast delivery Easy to order on website
