Do you like to bring Sony, Canon and other handheld DVs while traveling and are fascinated by them? It is undeniable that the video is great recorded by the handheld DV, but there is still a disadvantage here that they cannot be shared or uploaded to YouTube even viewed on devices such as PSP and mobile phones. You’d better convert them to digital formats or the format supported by the device for playback when you encounter these situations.
