Why rent DVDs when you can make your own with the DCR-DVD101 Handycam® camcorder. It records high quality digital video on 3-inch DVD-R and DVD-RW media that can easily be viewed on most current DVD players and PCs. It is even capable of capturing thousands of 640 x 480 resolution JPEG images, making it a virtual digital still camera. It’s perfect for vacations, holidays, or other family events.
Amazingly, the DCR-DVD101 is 29% smaller and 23% lighter than last year’s model. Despite it’s small size, it comes with all the features you would expect from a high-end camcorder, such as a 10X optical zoom, a 2.5" hybrid SwivelScreen™ LCD display, and Super NightShot Plus infrared system. It even includes a 1/6" Advanced HAD™ CCD imager and a Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens, which combine to give unmatched image quality.

DVD Format Video Recording
The DVD recording format delivers digital picture and sound quality comparable to that of MiniDV, but on DVD. Playback of the DVDs couldn’t be simpler. After finalizing the disc in the camera, the disc plays back in compatible DVD Players, computers and even PlayStation® 2 video game consoles.

10X Optical/120X Digital Zoom
The optical zoom helps to bring the action up close from far away. In addition, the digital zoom interpolation means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms.

2.5" Hybrid SwivelScreen™ LCD Display (123K Pixels)

The Hybrid LCD Screen provides accurate viewing in sunlight or bright light, virtually eliminating the “wash-out” common with traditional LCD screens.

Analog Inputs

Image sensor
Total megapixels*
A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 × 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 × 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).
