Expert review by : Andy Shaw (webuser.co.uk)

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.

Sony DCR-DVD202E

 

Size, weight, battery life, ability to record directly on DVD.

The DVDs do not have the wide screen bit set and can not be properly imported to my editing software. The camera also has no digital output so, at the end of the day is useless.

Sony DCR-DVD202E

 

This is an easy to use camera, it even has an easy function...the fact that it records to disc is great as you can play these in an ordinary DVD Player, great for grandparents etc.

You just need to be careful which type of disc you use as some can be overwritten and some can not.

Sony DCR-DVD202E

 

You can directly record on DVDs and no need of Firewire kit.

However it seems that this technology is still at very early stage where you can only record 30 minutes of video on whopping 1.4 GB disk. You would need vedio editing software as well to combine multiple DVDs movies into one.
