If you're looking to preserve your memories on DVD, Sony's DCR-DVD908E PAL DVD Camcorder is just the thing. It works on the PAL video standard used in most of Europe and records to 8-centimeter DVDs.
Super NightShot Plus and Super SteadyShot help you get optimum video in less-than-optimum conditions. The 2.7" color widescreen LCD does double duty as a monitor and a touchscreen that makes choosing menu options fast and easy. The DCR-DVD908E also works as a still camera and stores over 8000 pictures on to a single DVD disc.
Note: PAL video equipment is not meant for use in the USA. PAL is not designed for USA broadcast standards.
Record your videos direct to 8-centimeter DVDs. Supported formats include DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW.

Videos have the jitters? Super SteadyShot smooths things out by correcting for extraneous camera motion.
