Sony DCR-DVD150E Camcorder


The Sony DCR-DVD150E Camcorder is one of the easiest and most convenient to use. The simplicity in the design makes it very easy to operate, it only requires you to flip open the LCD screen and you are ready to go. This greatly enables you to capture...

Sony DCR-DVD150


Nice size and weight for convenience. I was looking for a camera that I could film with, then view straight away on the TV, as well as download to other formats, eg PC, DVD. I'm not sure yet if this camera fits the spec.

The instruction manual is very difficult to understand. Especially when formatting the disc...this just doesnt make sense. According to the manual, formatting in a certain way restricts how you edit later...I couldn't make head or tail of it! Bad...

Sony DCR-DVD150


This is an excellent buy that is easy to use from the moment you get it out of the box.

The battery that comes with it only lasts for a while so if you want to record something that goes on for a while then would recommend you buy a longer length battery.
