I have owned a Camcorder for the past 10 years and decided it was time to upgrade to a new model / type to take advantage of the new smaller units now available. Before deciding what type of Camcorder to buy ( Tape / DVD / Hard Drive ) I decided to use the Amazon site for feedback and re search. I finally decided to buy the Sony DCR-DVD306 Handycam DVD Camcorder. I have now owned the Camcorder for 1 month and have been pleased with the all round performance. The camcorder is easy to operate, small and light to carry and produces good results in both good and low light conditions. The quality of still pictures is not particularly great if taken in 'zoom' mode. I was concerned over comments about the controls being difficult to operate, I have not found any difficulty, I have also found transfering the recordings by either PC or through the TV fairly straight forward although it took me some time to set up the transfer the first time.

The Camcorder is not supplied with a very powerfull battery or a seperate charger, these are available from Sony after registration at a 25% discount, you will need a more powerfull battery if not a fast charger, accessories are a bit pricy even after the discount !

Overall I am pleased with the product, functions, quality and performance.

I'm not sure what the other review is on about, as the whole point of having a mini dvd type of handycam is so that you just put the disc in the pc drive and hey presto watch, edit and do what you like. Haven't even used the usb link.

Great picture quality, so easy to use lightweight etc. Only downside is (and this seems to be a common thing these days) that there is no case! However there is a special offer through Sony to get a free case and spare battery until end of June.

Thoroughly recommended

I bought this camera after my old Sony DVD camera was stolen at Heathrow when my baggage went missing for 3 days. I eventually got the smashed baggage returned sans camera. Moral: always carry cameras in your hand luggage.

This camera is lighter than my old one but has an enhanced set of features including the addition of a wonderful touch screen interface, which I really like. It does not take still photos to disk; you need to plug in a memory card to take stills. My old camera allowed stills to be taken directly to disk. This is no concern to me as I have a digital camera for stills and I also use Corel Ulead VideoStudio 11 plus that allows stills to be created from any frame of video footage, a nice feature. The camera takes good quality pictures; supports wide screen and dolby 5.1 surround sound. The battery could be punchier so I will probably purchase an additional battery in due course, something I also did with my old camera.

Why 4 stars? I have alluded to this in a sense by my mention of the VideoStudio software that I purchased separately from the camera; this is because the software that comes with this camera is dire. It works in a very limited sort of way but that is all it does. The editing features are virtually non existent except for simple video trimming. This is in contrast to my old camera which was provided with ImageMixer video editing software, which was not bad, though not in the same league as VideoStudio 11 plus.

This camera is excellent, nice and light and easy to handle with a very intuitive touch screen interface to control it but get proper video editing software, such as VideoStudio to get the most out of it.
