Sony DCR-DVD203E

 

Ease of use. Excellent picture straight on to DVD.

Battery given with product has very short life between charges so had to purchase longer life one. Disc can only take 30 mins per side.

Sony DCR-DVD203E

 

small compact easy to use love the touch screen, USB connection and using pinicle software makes great DVD's

included software is limited. Need to make windows see camcorder as a storage, like a USB hard drive, so you can get images off of it easily.
