Two months after the birth of my son, I only had photographs of him to remember him years down the road as a baby. Thinking that was not enough.

Simple chamber DVD Handycam in use ®, carrying out record in originally wide-screen mode, is fine addition for wide-screen TV 1. A very good quality video cam. Easy to use and easy to burn into dvd. A video cam for every person on the move. MUST own one..

DVD Handycam Camcorder
The DCR-DVD205 not only gives you Megapixel performance for your video and digital stills on a 3" DVD, but also packs a ton of features into a compact design. A 2.7" wide (16:9) SwivelScreen Touch Panel puts control at your fingertips, while the Easy Handycam Button locks out the advanced features to make operating the camcorder easy and less intimidating.
1.0 Megapixel Advanced HAD CCD Imager; 1070K Gross 1/5.5" Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD imager with 690K effective video pixels provides excellent detail and clarity, for exceptional digital video (up to 520 lines of resolution) and still image performance. Realize great looking digital still images with 1,000K effective pixels. DVD Format Video Recording2 The DVD recording format delivers digital picture and sound quality comparable to that of MiniDV, but on DVD. Playback of the DVDs couldn't be simpler. After finalizing the disc in the camcorder, the disc can play back in most DVD Players, computers and even PlayStation 2 video game consoles. DVD-R/RW and +RW Compatible4 The DCR-DVD205 is compatible with a variety of DVD formats allowing the easy of use and simplicity found in DVD Media. With DVD+RW media there is not a need to finalize the disc (minimum recording required). Simply remove the disc and insert the media into a compatible DVD Player. 12XOptical/800X Digital Zoom The optical zoom helps to bring the action close up from far away. In addition the Digital Zoom Interpolation means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms. Professional Quality Carl Zeiss VarioTessar Lens Carl Zeiss lenses have an advanced optical multi-layer coating that offers less glare and flare with increased contrast. This results in vivid image brilliance, true-to-life color saturation and perfect renditions of subtle tones. 2.7" Wide Touch Panel SwivelScreen LCD Display (123K Pixels) The 2.7" Wide (16:9) LCD screen provides excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The high resolution 123K pixel LCD screen rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles providing sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback, and the widescreen format makes shooting in 16:9 mode and composing shots even easier. SteadyShot Picture Stabilization System Picture stabilization system that uses motion sensors to detect and compensate for camera "shake" without compromising picture quality like some other digital stabilization systems. On Screen Zoom and Record Buttons For addition control of the camcorder, the DCR-DVD205 features Zoom and Record buttons on the frame of the LCD screen. This allows the user more flexibility when holding the camcorder, especially in overhead or low angle shots. Manual Focus Allows the user to manually adjust the focus of the camcorder using the touch panel. Manual focusing also allows the user to control the focus in difficult situations where either the environment or the subject does not allow the camcorder s auto focus to perform optimally, such as when shooting through a window or in a crowded environment. InfoLithium Battery with AccuPower Meter System1 Charge the battery at anytime because unlike NiCad (Nickel Cadmium) batteries, Sony s rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries are not subject to a life shortening memory effect. Sony s exclusive AccuPower meter displays the battery time remaining in minutes, in either the viewfinder or on the LCD screen. Super NightShot Plus Infrared System With Sony's Super NightShot Infrared System you can capture natural looking video, even when shooting in low light. Record subjects up to 20 feet away using the built-in infrared system, but without the overall monochrome color common with earlier low-light recording systems. Stamina Battery Power Management System1 Using the optional NP-FP90 InfoLithium Battery, the DCR-DVD203 can continuously record for up to 8 hours on a single full charge, providing extra long battery life. Picture Effects Get creative when recording or playing back your videos with Sony s Picture Effect Modes. Effects available in Camera mode: Mosaic, Monotone, Sepia and Pastel. Effects available in Playback mode: Monotone and Sepia. Fader Effects Enhance your personal videos by adding professional looking fader effects. Choose from Black, Overlap, White and Wipe. Conversion Software Nero Express 6 software is included for easy duplication and conversion from 3" Media to 5 1/4" Media ADDITIONAL FEATURES Battery Information Program AE (Auto Exposure) Modes Easy Handycam Button
