Bang for the buck


It's an older model but it works great. It also comes with an infrared sensor that lets you use your camera in the dark. I don't know what its price is because my dad bought it. It comes with an outstanding Zeiss lens. It takes crystal clear videos and...

It has night vision + touch technology and a high quality lens

It doesn't have a memory card slot on my version (dcr-dvd105)

Fantastic camera for a videobloger


It's an amazing camera. I only have one gripe. ONE pixel of the device died, so now my videos have a blue dot, dead center of them. Oh well. That is the only problem I've had. And if I had to chose between this and another camera, I'd choose this one...

Small, light, fantastic quality build

Short battery life

Tough little Camera!


This camera surprised me. I thought the inside area where you place the DVD's was tender & hard to attach, but I was wrong. Its plenty tough enough. And quite easy to attach dvd's. This camera won't work completely with no ability to stream with...

Shoots great DVD-R video's

Won't stream with Windows 7

Easy to use and small enough to carry


For the price this is a very user friendly camcorder and is easy to maneuver. We took it on a family vacation to Yellowstone and used the discs to record from the camcorder and used the memory stick for the still images. I was extremely disappointed in...

Very user friendly

Takes terrible still images

I fell in love with this camera from the moment I started it up. After charging the batter which took about 1.5 hrs. I was ready to go. Of course you have to buy a DVD disk or a Memory Stick first. It has lots of features to choose from. One thing you...

Touch Screen Menu. The Zoom is out of this world. Steady shot is good. Pic Quality is Great

A little difficult finding some of the setting on the Camcorder at first

DVD650 Camcorder


I've just purchased this camera for a trip to Alaska I am taking in July 09'. So far I like it very much. One problem is that the disk may not be compatable with older DVD players. You must finialize the disk ALWAYS before you play it in a laptop or...

Either disk or memory stick recording

Battery doesn't last long enough
