Great camcorder lousy software. I brought the camcorder right after checking out the spec and other reviews. The flash card camcorders develop inadequate photo excellent and the in created challenging push recorders were way also costly. The a single is only fantastic, photograph excellent on my 40 inch lcd is outstanding. A person downside stopped me offering total 5 stars. I much too have issues with the recorder communicating with the personal computer immediate. Nonetheless, putting the camcorder dvd into the personal computer lets comprehensive editing utilizing a programme like power director. My suggestions if you are wanting for a low cost reliable camcorder go for it.

After much searching and price comparing, finally opted for the dvd 106, ordered it 11am and chose first class delivery, to my suprise it was with me within 24 hours. After a 2 minute browse of the manual, i was up and running. Picture quality great (on hq even better)sound quality very good (beware of high winds on mic, common problem on all camcorders)handling and usablilty, great, buttons designed for one handed shooting. (be gentle with zoom control or you will hear the button through your mic)simplicity: even the father in law was eager to jump on and have a shot, and found it easy to use. Battery life, 94 minutes on full charge (bigger battery needed for longer shooting. Zoom: 40x zoom is amazing, auto focus is quick to catch upsoftware: basic but competent for first time user, although if you want to get into serious editting, sony vegas is the way forward but be prepared for some serious reading. Usb: easy to use and no download loss. Summary: this camera is aimed at the bottom end of the dvd market, sony has added enough to keep any amateur filmer more than happy, for £230 it is one of the best on the market. Unless you want to make a tv production this is a probably the best starting point.

Soon after significantly assessment of the confusion of camcorders and formats offered i decided to go for the sony dcr-dvd106e. A fantastic price from amazon, well packed and delivered instantly. This minor camcorder has all the functions required for newbie movie and the photograph good quality is exceptional. I chose dvd in excess of all other formats. I failed to want to rewind tape and hdd was additional highly-priced. This camcorder does what it claims. No need to invest in a more pricey product if you just want to place and shoot in sony’s ‘easy mode’ there are sufficient modes/amenities obtainable to continue to keep the buyer active for a extensive timecriticisms?. A small digital camera has little manage buttons. You will require to purchase extras. No starter dvd disk arrives with the digital camera. A shortsighted policy by sony. Irritating to acquire a terrific camcorder, not to be capable to use it promptly and have to go and obtain disks. A starter disk would only charge sony a handful of pence.

Sony DCR-DVD106 Handycam DVD Camcorder With 2.5” LCD Screen : Another great sony product let down by poor software. What a great dvd camcorder for a great price. Seriously i have owned this for a few months now, and i cannot find any major problems with it. The picture quality is astounding for the price, and the sound quality is above average. Sony chose not to include any dvd’s with the package, so if you want to use it straight away you need to order them at the same time as the camcorder. Sony also, in their well know and infinate wisdom, decided that the camcorder needs to remind you every time you put a disc in that their discs are better than any-one else’s and they recommend you only use theirs. I have been using tdk dvd-rw almost exclusively since i got it and they are better that the sony discs i purchased initially. Now onto the software supplied with the camcorder. I own numerous sony products (camcorder/dvd recorder/mp3 player/camera etc) and the 106 has the same problem as every other sony product. The supplied software, though perfectly capable of doing everything you want, is an utter nightmare to use. Also beware, when you upload the software it is designed to bury itself as deep as it can into your hard drive and latches onto and sonic/sony software you already have on your drive. The software for the 106 even told me that it could not fully install as the sonic software i had on my hard drive was to up to date, and recommeded that i re-install an older version. Overall a great product from sony, let down again by difficult software.

Not good for indoor, low light, and noisey dvd motor. . Unfortunatley, this camera is not good in dim lit areas, i understand that most digital recording media will have trouble but the visible noise when using the slightest zoom on an indoor event is below acceptable. Also, if the event being recorded is quiet, then when the camera is writing data to the disk, the noise being made is recorded to the disc too. Playing back my daughters school play unfortunatly left a lot to be desired with loss of visual clarity and bad sound qualitythe functionality is fantastic, the zoom (in good conditions) is excellent. Unfortunatly what you do with your data disc is not clearly explained, i highly recommend exploring how you are going to edit your captured video and record onto your own dvds’. I chose sony vegas recording studio 9 as this is one of the few software titles that reconises the recording format, and enables you to edit and create your own dvd. I also wish i had waited and got a camera that records direct to memory card. The 30mins on each small dvd is only really suitable for short recordings.

Great camcorder poor software. I brought the camcorder after checking out the spec and other reviews. The flash card camcorders produce poor picture quality and the in built hard drive recorders were way too expensive. The one is simply great, picture quality on my 40 inch lcd is superb. One downside stopped me giving full 5 stars. I too have problems with the recorder communicating with the computer direct. However, putting the camcorder dvd into the computer allows full editing using a programme like power director. My advice if you are looking for a cheap reliable camcorder go for it.

This is an excellent camera that is easy to use for the whole family. My daughter is 4 and she can easily operate it. I have had the caera nearly a year now, and have not had any problems with it. I just took it skiing and captured the skiing perfectly. Skiing over bumps etc didn’t effect the image.

Good one at this price range. This is definitly a good buy at a price of £200. Though you can get a hd camera with a bit higher price, definitly you will miss the sony brand and the quality that comes with it. The picture quality at bright light is awesome. Pros;good picture qualityhandy and cutegood zoomcons:no inbuilt memory for photo’s. Message you get when you use a non-sony dvd’sofcourse not a single blank dvd that comes along with the packageoverall, i should say, its a good buy.

I had a tape camcoder; i think it was panasonic until it broke a few months ago and since then a camcoder has been on my wish list. I bought the previous camera two years and it cost me the same price as this one now. This camcoder is probably the most you get for your money out of all the cameras out there. The video quality is excellent and you can film in widescrean and surround sound. There are many modes that you can use like sports mode, potrait mode, macro mode (which is excellent) and, my favourite, night mode. This is like the effect they use on the blair witch project and most haunted. It is an effect where you can film in pitch black with an infared light and it will pick up the areas you are pointing at without you being able to see it with your own eyes. It is simple to use apart from i had a bit of trouble with figuring out how to get my cds converted to be able to use on the computer and on my editing software (magix).

At the moment i am considering the purchase of this camera. Naturally i have attempted to gather as much information as possible. I have given 5 stars because i do not wish my comments to degrade the overall average and as i already own several sony products i am sure that the quality will be first class. However, i was disturbed to find that the manufacturer’s description on the page for this product referred in fact to the dcr-dvd406e model which is considerably more expensive. This is to say the least misleading and initially it certainly led me to believe that the specification was much greater than it in fact is. I hope that this oversight will be corrected at the earliest opportunity as my dealings with amazon have always been of the highest order and i am sure that the company would wish to clarify what appears to be an inadvertent ambiguity.

Ordred my camcorder from amazon and saved over £100 compared to tesco direct and received it next day. I’ve found this camcorder excellent in all areas. Picture quality, sound, zoom and ease of use is brilliant. Nightshot plus is amazing and films in the pitch-black. The best thing about this handycam is the low budget price you pay for the specifications on this nifty number. Those are the plus points and now for the negative ones. Sony need to get their act together. The manual is all over the place.

I got this item from another store but wanted to leave my review here. This is an excellent camcorder and the picture quality is excellent for what you are paying for. I use tdk dvd-rw discs which work fine and i get no pop up telling me its not a sony disc. The zoom is fantastic and i find it so simple to use that you have to be a monkey if you find it difficult(no offense to other reviewers. I have ordered a compatible np-fh100 battery off ebay for £12 inc p+p. Compared to the samsung camcorder i previously had (from amazon) this is much better. Love the superplus night shot. Really spooky and works surprisingly well.

This is an excellent camcorder and really easy to use – no need to read any manuals, just pop a disk in and start recording. Amazing optical zoom, small and light. Not 5 stars because found touch screen a bit fiddly and doesn’t come with a free disk. ***warning*** if you get an accessory pack make sure the battery is one from the ‘h series’ which are the only ones compatible with the sony 106. I bought the sony acc-dvdh dvd camcorder starter kit, which another reviewer recommended instead of the acc-dvdp because it apparently came with an ‘h series’ battery. However the battery in both of these kits are incompatible with the 106. The ‘h series’ include: np-fh40; np-fh50; np-fh70; np-fh100.

Arrived safe and sound i did’nt pay for the special delivery service. Great little number, though the instruction book could be in plainer english, it’s not the eassiest to navigate through. I agree they should supply a dvd with the camcorder. I am still in my early days with it and am trawling the web to find a back up battery for it.

After much analysis of the confusion of camcorders and formats available i decided to go for the sony dcr-dvd106e. A good price from amazon, well packed and delivered promptly. This little camcorder has all the features needed for amateur video and the picture quality is excellent. I chose dvd over all other formats. I didn’t want to rewind tape and hdd was more expensive. This camcorder does what it says. No need to buy a more expensive model if you just want to point and shoot in sony’s ‘easy mode’ there are enough modes/facilities available to keep the buyer busy for a long timecriticisms?. A small camera has tiny control buttons. You will need to buy extras. No starter dvd disk comes with the camera. A shortsighted policy by sony. Irritating to receive a great camcorder, not to be able to use it immediately and have to go and buy disks. A starter disk would only cost sony a few pence.
