Shooting and sharing video is easy with the DCR-DVD610 Handycam® camcorder. The simple controls and powerful features let you record your favorite events without a hassle. Compose your shots on the 2.7" widescreen (16:9) touch panel LCD display, then close in on the action using the powerful 40x optical/2000x digital zoom. Gain even more control over your images with Super Steady Shot® image stabilization, as well as Super NightShot® Plus technology for excellent quality in low light.

40X Optical / 2000X Digital Zoom
The optical zoom helps to bring the action close up from far away. In addition, Digital Zoom Interpolation means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zoom.

Professional Quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® Lens
Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar lenses are designed specifically for compact camcorders, and utilize precision ground optics to maintain the sharpness and contrast found with larger lenses.

DVD Format Video Recording
The DVD recording format in MPEG2 (SD) delivers digital picture and sound quality comparable to that of MiniDV, but on DVD. Playback of these DVDs couldn't be simpler (depending upon the playback device used). After finalizing the disc in the camcorder, the disc can play back in most DVD Players (SD), computers, Blu-ray Disc players, and even PlayStation® 3 video game consoles.

DVD-R/-RW/+RW and +R DL (Dual Layer) Compatible
Compatibility with a variety of DVD formats allows the ease-of-use and simplicity found in DVD media. With DVD+RW media there is no need to finalize the disc (minimum recording required); simply remove the finalized disc and insert the media into a compatible DVD or Blu-ray Disc Player.

Hybrid Recording to DVD or Memory Stick® Media
Hybrid recording technology delivers a new level of flexibility for transferring your video footage and digital photos from the camcorder to compatible viewing devices. Record to DVD media, or choose instead to record to removable Memory Stick Duo media or Memory Stick PRO Duo media. You can even select from various dubbing functions to easily copy video or still images from the Memory Stick media to DVD -- without using a PC. Images recorded or transferred to DVD can then be played directly most DVD Players (SD), computers, Blu-ray Disc players, and even PlayStation® 3 video game consoles to share your memories with friends and family.

Quick On
Missing an important scene can be frustrating, especially if the reason is because your camcorder is turned off. With the Quick On feature, the touch of a single button places that camcorder in Sleep mode. Another push instantly wakes the camcorder, so you’ll always be ready to capture special moments.

Built-in zoom microphone
Featuring Dolby® Ditigal 5.1 Creator, the built-in zoom microphone focuses audio recording on your subjects in sync with the camera’s zoom lens, helping memories ring true with clear dialogue and crisp, discrete sounds.

2.7" Wide (16:9) Hybrid Touch Panel Clear Photo LCD Plus Display (211K Pixels)
The 2.7" Wide (16:9) LCD screen provides exceptional viewing clarity with improved resolution (211K pixels). The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The widescreen format makes shooting in 16:9 mode and composing shots even easier.

Memory Stick PRO Duo Media Slot
Capture still images directly onto Memory Stick PRO Duo media (sold separately) for easy transfer to PCs for emailing, printing, or sharing with other compatible Memory Stick® devices (sold separately).

Super SteadyShot® Image Stabilization System
An advanced version of Sony's SteadyShot® Image Stabilization system that controls an even higher range of shake and vibration frequencies, to achieve an even higher level of smoothness without degradation of video like some other image stabilization systems.

InfoLITHIUM® Battery with AccuPower Meter System
Unlike NiCad (Nickel Cadmium) batteries, Sony's rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries are not subjected to a life shortening "Memory Effect," so you’re free to charge the battery at any time. Additionally, Sony's exclusive AccuPower meter displays the battery time remaining in minutes, in either the viewfinder or on the LCD screen.

Manual Focus
Manually adjust the focus of the camcorder using the touch panel. Manual focusing also allows the user to control the focus in difficult situations where either the environment or the subject does not allow the camcorder's auto focus to perform optimally, such as when shooting through a window or in a crowded environment.

Super NightShot® Plus Infrared System
The Super NightShot® Plus Infrared System uses a slow shutter mode to let you shoot video with improved color and contrast, even in total darkness (0 lux).

Stamina® Battery Power Management System
When using the Sony InfoLITHIUM® Battery, the Stamina® Battery Power Management System helps the camcorder prolong battery life for extra long continuous recording times from a single charge.

Scene Selection Modes
Scene Selection modes make recording easy even when filming in challenging situations. Choose from Auto, Twilight, Candle (move only), Sunrise & Sunset, Fireworks (move only), Landscape, Portrait, Spotlight, Sports (movie only), Beach, Snow

Picture Effects
Get creative when recording or playing back your videos with Sony's Picture Effect Modes. Effects available in Monotone, Sepia and Pastel

Fader Effects
Enhance your personal videos by adding professional looking fader effects. Choose from Black and White.

Visual Index Screen
Shows thumbnail images of video clips and still images when playing back on your camcorder or DVD player, making your selection easier.

Battery Information
At the touch of a button, battery information is displayed on the LCD screen when charging and when the camcorder is turned off. When using the LCD screen or viewfinder, the display will show how much the battery is charged -- in 10% increments -- and the recordable time left.

Easy Handycam® Button
Using a camcorder can be intimidating for some people. With a press of the Easy Handycam Button, most of the advanced features of the camcorder are "locked out," letting you focus only the buttons essential for recording.

Multi-Language Menu
Change the menu display from English to English (Simplified), Canadian French, Latin American Spanish, or Brazilian Portuguese

Comments about Sony DCR-DVD610 DVD Handycam Camcorder:

Contrary to item's description, mini-disks will not play in all computers, esp. laptops with DVD drives; the drives physically cannot capture disks that aren't 12 cm.

Sony's DVD camcorder software has a history of troublesome transfer to computers for editing; I have yet to succeed in getting one of my videos from the camera or one of its disks onto any of several computer video editing programs. A nightmare because of multiple format choices that are infinitely confusing.

Comments about Sony DCR-DVD610 DVD Handycam Camcorder:

What a great little camera, and I mean little it is small and compact and you won't get tired of carring it around. The picture quality is great. the ease of use is something that anyone can do, all the buttons are easy to get to and well labled. I have had many camcorders including other Sonys, but they have out done themselves with the 610.
