grainy videos (Megan Yingling — 12/26/2009)

The videos are very grainy and unclear. I am very disappointed with this camera. It focuses very slowly and sometimes not at all when you aim it at a subject. I have not tried all of the features, but mainly wanted it to video tape my children. I will be returning it to the store where it was purchased.

All i ever wanted and more: (Charlie — 11/17/2009)

Mini DVD and memory stick! great video quality on either format, you have 30 min on DVD and with a 4 gb stick andother 60 min record time, the zoom is nice and clear, the sound is great fairly simple to use had it up and running on tv DVD recorder and computer in just minutes for all, not very good still pictures though most aren't on a video camers it's around 3 megapixels, a little dissa pointed in low light performance but overall very satisfied, definitely recommened.

Good camera with lots of good feathers (Ronnie — 06/27/2009)

I have 6 DVD full of movies but cannot get them to my computer. The USB cable has the RCA plugs and my computer dose not, Bought a Dazzle to use to transfur but cannot get it to reconize the DVD650 camcorder. Good camera if you can get it to the computer, I have tried to use the PMB program and it will not work.
