Sony DCR-DVD7E

 

With the DCRDVD7E, Sony has approached DVD camcorder design from a completely new angle, taking an inspiration cue from digital still cameras, rather ...

Stylish design, LCD screen viewable even in bright sunlight, excellent lens cap protection

Poor low-light performance, disc open switch too close to record switch, black casing easily scratched, disappointing still quality

The Sony DVD7E would appeal to anyone wanting quick and easy video for fun or family entertaining.
