'No video light.'
'a cheap, lame hand strap'

'the most advanced and the first to record high definition video.'
'not an ideal camcorder for people looking to record high action footage, such as sports.'

'The picture is less bright overall'
'Poorly structured menus'
'the DVD405 makes due with an old-hat 3-megapixel Advanced HAD CCD and an undersize 2.7-inch display.'
