Sony Handycam DCR-DVD205 review: Sony Handycam DCR-DVD205

 

Sony Handycam DCR-DVD205

Generally fast autofocus and autoexposure.

Middling video quality; no windscreen filter for microphone; small LCD with impractical touch-screen-based menu system.

The Sony Handycam DCR-DVD205 is as middling as its sibling, the DCR-DVD305; however, it eschews the impractical features of the DVD305 for a lower price tag, making it a better bargain.

Sony DCR-DVD205 Camcorder Review

 

The Sony DCR-DVD205 ($600 MSRP) shares many similarities with last year's model, the DCR-DVD203, which we trounced in our review. But DVD camcorder technology is improving rapidly, especially in video quality. In an increasingly crowded middle and...

The DCR-DVD205 occupies a kind of middle ground in the lower-end Sony DVD lineup this year. It sits in between the DCR-DVD105, Sony's cheapest DVD model, and the DCR-DVD305, the model occupying the threshold between the higher level DVD camcorders and...

Sony DCR-DVD205

 

The DCR-DVD205 features a 1/5.5" CCD with 1.07 gross MP (in 4:3 video: 690K effective pixels; in 16:9 video: 670K effective pixels). At 3000 lux, the DVD205 produced a surprisingly decent picture, with a relatively sharp image, favorable color...

Sony DCR-DVD205

 

Really dinky camcorder. Light weight and easy to use. Like being able to record and finalise the dvd and then immediately able to watch on dvd player.

Mini dvds only hold 25-30 minutes of video which is too short but that isnt just relevant to this model but to dvd camcorders in general
