|If you are looking a new camcorder, this is the camcorder that you have to look. Big wide screen LCD, compact camcorder but it has more functions. I would greatly recommend this product without a doubt to anyone. good picture quality, even indoors with low light. LCD size is good size. (Edited April 11th by simpilot2000) Overall pretty dis-satisfied with video and pictures. Small size, touch screen display for menu.|

Watch your home movies come to life like never before with the DCR-DVD203 DVD Handycam camcorder from Sony. Enjoy the extra large 2.7" wide LCD screen, which swivels and adjusts to optimize the viewing angle for easy recording. Not only can you record digital video, but you can also capture quality digital still images at up to 1 Megapixel. It is even capable of recording surround sound audio (an optional surround sound microphone is required), so you can capture big sound to match its big picture. Fully equipped with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens, you can capture professional quality digital video and images with enhanced color and clarity. The 12X optical zoom brings the action close with minimized distortion. The Super NightShot Plus infrared system lets you record in low light conditions. As with all of Sony's DVD Handycam camcorders, you can conveniently record directly to DVD.
