Sony DCR-DVD92 DVD Handycam Camcorder

 

20X zoom with optical image stabilization

Mediocre video quality. Very poor digital still quality

The Sony DCR-DVD92 is reasonably priced for a DVD camcorder and features a 20X zoom lens, but video quality was disappointing.

We've had our little camcorder for I think nearly 2 years now. We chose this one because I like the name brand and it had a rebate. We had upgraded from a VHS-C so there were quite a few things I had to get used to. I'm pretty simple so the "easy"...

Product Specifications

Simple digital video and still image recording is here with the DCR-DVD92 DVD Handycam camcorder. It's simple because Sony has created a camcorder with easy-to-use features, and you can record directly onto DVD. Features such as Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization compensates for camera "shake" and makes it easy to record smoother video. It's also easy to capture distant objects with 20X optical zoom and 800X digital zoom. Though easy-to-use, the DCR-DVD92 is fully capable of capturing difficult shots. With Super NightShot Plus infrared system, you can record even in low light situations. The 2.5" LCD screen provides image clarity and easily rotates to give you the best possible viewing angle. The DCR-DVD92 also comes with additional LCD touch screen controls for extra convenience. Could digital video and digital still image recording be any easier?
