'high-end standard-definition DVD camcorder'
'The Sony DCR-DVD910 ($649 MSRP) just can't compete for our good graces this year.'
'Unbelievably poor battery placement'
'This screen delivers a clear picture of the action during recording and playback.'
'video becomes absurdly choppy in dim lighting.'
'The VDR-D210 lacks a headphone jack, too, which makes reviewing your audio difficult when you're in a noisy area.'
'no SD card slot'
'This DVD camcorder has no JPEG still-image capture.'
'dismal audio offerings'
'decent color and sharpness'
'recording straight to DVD-R/-RW/+RW/+R Dual Layer media formats'
'slightly awkward controls'
'Pricey for a standard-def camcorder'
'port cover is hard to open unless you access it with the LCD screen open, and the thin plastic strips that secure it to the body are highly susceptible to snapping off.'
'The DC50 is also easy to use, with the Joystick exposure control, Quick Start, and Horizontal Marker -- all in a stylish and easy-to-use design.'
'crystal clear video'
'The DVD201's pixel-transition ratio averaged 6 percent--generally considered unacceptable in a still camera, but fine for e-mailing and printing in small formats for posting on the fridge.'
'the DCR-DVD201 comes through as a great camcorder for the home videographer'
'the DCR-DVD201 includes a stellar Sony LCD, records to the relatively convenient format of DVD-R/RW discs, has a hot accessory shoe, and a microphone input.'
'feels much more comfortable in your shoot operations but stability and manual control are difficult'
