Sony Handycam DCR-DVD205 DVD Digital Camcorder

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty

With the DCR-DVD205, you can record home videos and photos on a mini-DVD, and then pop the disc into a DVD player to watch them. Weighing just over a pound, this Handycam is a great companion for family outings, vacations, or just recording on the fly. And Sony's also included lots of useful features that help you get great-looking shots.

For starters, there's the advanced lens, which ensures accurate color and clear, vivid detail. When you want to capture a close-up, use the DVD205's 12X optical zoom. Steady Shot Image stabilization helps keep your video footage shake-free. If you have a widescreen TV (16:9), you'll be pleased with the DVD203's widescreen mode. It lets you record movies that fill out the TV's screen, without stretching or distorting the picture. There's even a large 2.7 inch widescreen LCD on the camera, for a perfect view of you're filming. Plus, there's the DVD205's digital photo mode. With its 1-megapixel recording capability, the camera can save nice, sharp pictures to disc and view them on TV.
