  • Summary: is ok fornowbought the NewPhone 74205 three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive phone. It has a 1M-pixel camera, video camera, and speakerphone. The NewPhone's size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 4 hours.

This is a good buy

  • Summary: I have had this model for over 5 yrs and it performed well. I could never use all of the features. Unfortunately I dropped my unit while on vacation and have been looking to replace it so I can view & transfer my tapes. My unit was repaired a number of times for the same problem, the zoom would activate for no reason while recording, slowly creeping to telephoto. The charger also failed to work recently.

Sony's best consumer analog Hi8mm

mrhulot, Ebay
25 October 2007
  • Summary: The Sony TRV87 was one of the last consumer grade one chip non digital Hi8mm videocameras. It was also , in my opinion, the best Sony made. I am amazed at the low prices they are getting on ebay. I know everyone has switched to digital for many good reasons, but for the average consumer a good used trv87 would meet all their needs for a fraction of the cost of the latest models. It is quite easy to transfer the old analog tape to a dvd via a cheap dvd recorder.

Inexpensive and great for me

  • Summary: i loved everything i read about it. I decided to try and buy it because of the price. I also loved the fact that u don't have to worry about tapes, hooking it up to the vcr, and shakiness. I would recommend it to anyone. Especially those who are inexperinsed or just shakey. This would be perfect for any age.

  • Summary: Great camcorder for nearly all applications, go for it unless you absolutely can't live without a digital format.
  • Pros: Beautiful Hi8 picture quality, loads of neat features
  • Cons: Onboard mike leaves something to be desired, manual focusing is tough, no accessory shoe.

The last of the decent Sony pure analog camcorders

mikeymars, epinions.com
20 November 2003
  • Summary: Future classic given all the features and design (in same club as Sony TR101, a famous 1992 Hi8 model), still a huge value for the money
  • Pros: Analog video that rivals digital, crammed with every advanced feature Sony ever put into Hi8
  • Cons: Not trendy "teeny-weeny" size; since out of production is getting somewhat harder to find
