Sony's DCR-DVD405 is their high-end model camcorder that writes directly to 8cm DVDs, burning your memories to disc with a high resolution 3 megapixel (total) capture. These DVD camcorders have a lot going for them. They're small, they're simple, and they give you a finished product that you can actually use and share, unlike Mini DV camcorders. Everyone's got a DVD player, and you can mail your finished discs to relatives, or transfer them to your computer for digital sharing. Be sure that your DVD player can handle the different custom disc formats before you settle.
