Sony DCR-DVD300 DVD Handycam

 

This camcorder records to DVD, but don't throw out the videotape quite yet: That feature is a little awkward to use.

High-quality DVD recordings ; Microphone jack ; Point-shoot-share philosophy

No headphone jack ; Blank media currently expensive ; Long wait to finalize/access discs

A strong entry for Sony in the brand-new DVD camcorder marketplace.
