DCRHC40 - better than TRV22

Amazon
14 March 2010
  • Summary: MY beloved TRV 22 was stolen recently. Having only owned and really enjoyed it for 3 months I was aghast to find it was discontinued when my insurance company sought quotes. With a new baby I had been using the camera a lot.

  • Summary: I just purchased this camera about a week ago and I received it a few days ago. The camera is absolutely wonderful. Even though people say the bottom loading tape is bad, I think it is actually a good feature.

I've had mine for 9 months now...

  • Summary: This is a great camera for filming! I love the size, the oh-so-easy-to-use lcd touch panel (nifty) and the auto-focus is not so bad. Of course, it takes pictures also, but keep in mind that the main purpose for this gadget is FILMING! It takes good enough videos with the memory stick, great sound!

washed out images?

cs, Amazon
20 October 2004
  • Summary: My husband and I just purchased this Handycam. I almost bought the DCRHC30 instead because in the store I also was concerned about the washed out looking images. When I compared the two and asked the salesperson for help he was not able to fix this problem. This bothered me so I walked away.

Worth the money

D. A Shogren, Amazon
20 October 2004
  • Summary: Over the past 35 years that I have been shooting video, it has come a long way. Comparing this to the RCA TK-76 "Minicam" that I shot tv news with on 3/4" in 1977 is fun: 1/100 the cost and double the scan lines. Oh, and 1/80th the weight not including the 40 pound recorder.

Great miniDV camera

Mike S, Amazon
20 October 2004
  • Summary: I just needed a small camcorder for making video game movies and this fits that. My laptop recognized it right away. Transfer is good and I have not had any problems with this DV Camcorder. The only complaint that I do have is the touch screen.

Matthew Walsh, Amazon

  • Summary: I needed a cam to make some movies of my new daughter. I wanted something compact so that I would never hesitate to carry it around. I also wanted to make sure it was easy to use and took great video indoors.

Pero debes comprar los accesorios $$$

Amazon Customer, Amazon
19 October 2004
  • Summary: Yo compré la HC40 muy entusiasmado por las especificaciones. Y son ciertas!!! El NigthShot tiene un muy buen desempeño, aunque el Nigth Shot Plus no. La calidad de la filmación en ambientes muy bien iluminados es alta. Pero tiene problemas con falta de luz.
