Sony DCR-DVD650 review

 

DVDs were never a perfect solution for directly recording video with a camcorder. The medium makes even less sense now with hard-disk-drive and flash-memory models reasonably priced and able to store much more video in far smaller packages. About the...

Simple operation; records to DVDs or Memory Stick flash media.

Soft video; noticeable purple fringing on subjects; DVDs not ideal storage medium.

The Sony Handycam DCR-DVD650 offers an all-in-one, on-the-go way to capture standard-def video and burn it to a DVD, but hard-disk-drive and flash-memory models are otherwise a better option.

Think again

 

I am completely appalled and in disbelief that this is a Sony product! The camera itself is beautiful and the touch screen makes it fun to use. Battery life, weight and size were great. The horror came when I played back my recordings on TV. Total...

I found this camera to have poor quality. My parent's old VHS camcorder took better video. Will never shop with Dell again. I tried to return the item (within 30 days but outside of their 21 day policy) and they REFUSED to take it back. Even offered to...
