Amanda, March

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This is an easy to use camera, it even has an easy function...the fact that it records to disc is great as you can play these in an ordinary DVD Player, great for grandparents etc.
Bad points:
You just need to be careful which type of disc you use as some can be overwritten and some can not.

Bob, London

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Size, weight, battery life, ability to record directly on DVD.
Bad points:
The DVDs do not have the wide screen bit set and can not be properly imported to my editing software. The camera also has no digital output so, at the end of the day is useless.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
You can directly record on DVDs and no need of Firewire kit.
Bad points:
However it seems that this technology is still at very early stage where you can only record 30 minutes of video on whopping 1.4 GB disk.
You would need vedio editing software as well to combine multiple DVDs movies into one.
