Looks like consumers like the simplicity of recording video directly onto DVDs. Sony just announced that they sold more than one million of the disc-based camcorders.

According to market research from NPD Intellect, the DVD format now accounts for 22% of the camcorder market, double of that a year ago. Sony DVD Handycam camcorders dominate the market with 85% market share in the United States.
