Full sized 4 3/4 DVD camcorder

by alph3 / May 11, 2009 7:43 AM PDT

I am searching for a full sized DVD 4.75 inch Camcorder, I search and they all come up as full sized but then you read the specs and its the little mini disk. Does anyone make a regular full sized DVD media camcorder???????????

No full sized camcorders...

They would be too big. No one manufactures regular-size DVD camcorders.

I guess if someone manufactured a full sized DVD camcorder it would not allow extra profit of the new smaller 3 inch disk. I thought Sony's original Mavika used a full size disk and provided 2 hours or more of recording time? I guess it would be too easy to just pop a full sized in and be done with it with out having to transfer multiple disk to one disk for long events. Maybe I need to look for a Hard Drive camcorder.

Only model I thought had 5 inch media capability and then it was only CD.

With hard disk camcorders now abundant I doubt we'll see any return to DVD media.
