Sony DCR-DVD108 Camcorder Review

 

The DCR-DVD108 ($399 MSRP) is Sony's entry-level DVD camcorder this year, a market which Sony has capitalized on with astonishing zeal. The DVD108 is a prime example of why Sony holds the cards. Name recognition, ease of use, and the right price - the...

The DVD108 offers decent image quality for its price range, but don't bother with the 640 x 480 stills. Low light was, yet again, a disppointment. Sony has not been able to shake the problem of blue noise fuzzing up the picture. It has a solid grip,...

Sony DCR-DVD108 Review and Prices

 

The Sony DCR-DVD108 replaces last year's DCR-DVD105 as the new entry-level model in Sony's range of DVD camcorders. As such, it offers little in the way of high-end features, but will appeal to novice users and point-and-shooters looking for a simple...

Budget price, point and shoot simplicity

Limited manual controls, poor stills performance

Sony DCR-DVD108

 

Inside the DVD108 is a small 1/6-inch, 680,000 pixel CCD, an imager found in most entry-level camcorders. The DCR-DVD108 produces a decent image characterized by a balanced color spectrum and heightened sharpness. The colors are a bit oversaturated,...

Consumer review by: DanSpurling (viewpoints.com)

Terrible stills - great video ”

 

If you are looking for a combination device with still pic and video capability, please look elsewhere. You will get much better quality still photos from your old cell phone. The video quality is pretty good though. I wish I hadn't spent the money...

A good cam, not great though ”

 

For the price I paid for this handycam, I got my money's worth forsure. Could the camera itself been made a little bit better? Yes. But don't write this off just yet. The zoom on this camera is beyond great, I first tried it out on a family vacation on...

a handy camcorder ”

 

This is a very nice camcorder that I bought for my family to use. It is great because I am able to record every moment of the day. The camcorder is not as thin as I would like it to be, and because it is a little bit chunkier it is harder for me to...
