You can record directly to DVD using this Sony Digital Camcorder and using the Picture Package software you can easily organize still images and video content and create music videos with them. One item I really like about DVD recordable camcorders is the visual index usually offered (this digital camcorder does!) which allows you to quickly flip from chapter to chapter so you don’t have to watch an entire MiniDVs tape from start to finish to find some footage you want.
You can literally stick this camcorder in the palm of your hand and if you go on a trip, the DVD recordables are more flat that MiniDVs. This would be a great camcorder for everyday use (if you have kids) or travel.
Now you can make videos that sound as great as they look. The first 3-megapixel CCD model camcorder in Sony’s DVD Handycam history, the DCR-DVD403 provides both high-resolution images and high-quality surround sound. The famous Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens and 3.3M gross pixels capture high-definition DVD digital movies. Or go the DSC (digital still camera) route and let the camcorder’s 3,050K effective pixels give you up to 1,800 pictures on a single DVD. The built-in 4ch microphone records Dolby 5.1ch surround sound directly onto the disc, making those moments to remember ones you’ll truly never forget–especially after you add background music and special effects, which come with the Picture Package of video-editing software.
