Camcorderinfo takes a look at the DCR-DVD203 camcorder from Sony, and conclude it pretty much blows goats. Sure, you get the direct recording to DVD, the fancy widescreen LCD, and all that other jazz — but what's the point if the thing's image sensor has sorry image quality? Camcorderinfo recommends picking up a similar model from Hitachi or Panasonic, or just saving some more dough for the DVD403.
