Sony CCDTRV66 Handycam Camcorder

Robert Minter, Amazon
6 July 2013
  • Summary: I already had one of these camcorder when I purchased the one from Amazon and I have been very pleased with the one I already had. The problem with the one that I bought from Amazon was in excellent condition and a bargin for the price but I used it on a surveillance that was important but not critical and discovered that it would skip portions of the video as if it had a dead spot on the recorder's heads.

Still use this camcorder today

Todd7, Amazon
25 February 2011
  • Summary: I love this camcorder. Why? It's easy to use, has excellent picture and sound quality, isn't bulky (even though it's much bigger than the stuff they have out now), and has a lot of features. Yes, to use this camcorder today entails using cassettes as opposed to built-in disc drives, but you wouldn't know the difference in overall quality. Furthermore, it's all too easy to just burn your cassette footage onto DVD anyway.

A Great Deal

  • Summary: I am very pleased to have found this used camcorder to complete the transfer of my video archives from Hi8 to my laptop for editing. The camcorder, a Sony CCD TRV66, is was very good condition when I received it and it works wonderfully as I would want it to. It permits me to output video through my S cable as well as through standard AV cables. It is so very simple to operate when transferring video to my laptop.

Sony TRV66 & TRV87 Handycam Vision

n4yx, Ebay
14 July 2008
  • Summary: These are the most feature rich Hi8 / Hi8XR hybrid units Sony built circa 2000. I have two of each now and although I also have a Canon ZR80 miniDV and a brand new JVC 30GB HD Cam I would not give up any of my Sonys. I purchased my first TRV66 brand new after researching everything Sony offered at the time. As NRA's Heston remarked about handguns .. you'd have to pry my TRV 87s & 66s from my cold dead hands!

Great features, never a problem

Amazon Customer "kc5vze", Amazon
26 September 2002
  • Summary: Had this camera for a couple years now and have never had a problem. Can't ask for any more features. The battery still holds a charge for over 4hrs of use. The image quality is great and the audio pickup(stereo) works fabulously. Only complaint would be the Camera/off/VTR switch, but not for the same reason as the others listed. I just don't like the location of it and it can be a little bit of a hassle getting it to the off position.

Good features, but annoying switch problem

Robert Minter, Amazon
3 September 2002
  • Summary: I've had this TRV66 for 3 years, but the problem started occuring 1 year after I bought it. It was doing great until the switch started messing up. I found out only after my batteries keep draining even after I switched the camera off. Finally, I noticed that when I turn the camera off by switching it to the "Off" position, the VTR lights come on instead. The only way I could really turn it off was to remove the battery.
