Fantastic entry level Digital camcorder

  • Excerpt: Firstly this is not a technical specifation of the camera, its a description of practical usage of which you may find some use. I got one of these a little under a year ago for keeping a video record of my son growing up.
  • Pros: It's a Sony and I've got one !  !
  • Cons: The supplied battery is crap

  • Summary: I am very impressed with the system, although wish i had spent a little more for a system with the DV in option, as despite the two reviews I am unable to find an option to enable this feature.

Bad bad Bad

  • Summary: I have had this camera now for 6 months and it has been in the repair shop twice already. It keeps snapping my tapes and jamming. Plus the battery live is really poor. Only about 45 minutes. I am VERY VERY disappointed with this camera and will think twice about buying SONY again.

Good things come in small packages!

  • Summary: I thoroughly researched a lot of cameras within my budget and this camera came out on top. I must note that I am in Australia and my camera was bought here. Except for a couple of features it is basically the same model as the UK one.

An exceptional piece of engineering..

  • Summary: This camera does it all. In spite of my best efforts I have yet to have a disappointment and the camera appears to be fool proof. If you buy this camera then two suggestions - try to stretch to a light for it ( one of the Sony magic shoe lights at about £40.00 - uses the same battery power) will do...

  • Summary: Having used a Sony TRV320 for a number of years I wanted something similar but smaller & lighter, This slips into the bottom half of the Trekker bag I bought for the 320, with room to spare for battery and 5 mini Dv tapes !

A perfect compromise between price and functionality

  • Summary: I am a BBC News cameraman, and I was looking for a palmcorder for personal use which would give me a professional 'feel' in a very small package. After trying several makes and models I settled on the SONY DCR-TRV16 and I have to say that I was simply stunned by it's performance.
