Buy Sony DCR-SX21E if you will be writing only DVDs

This is an excellent product from Sony. However, If one would be making only DVDs from the captured videos than DCR-SX21E will serve the purpose. The advantage of this camera being good low light level performance, better colours and HD quality if one will be making blue rays discs or watch videoss on a HD Tv.
