I like it, with an exception.

  • Summary: I love this camera, because I use it for paranormal research. The only thing I don't like is that you can't do camera -to-PC transfer of files if you have Windows 7, you have to purchase the extra DV chord. The night-vision on the camera is great though. It shoots really clear for being a cassette-carrying camera. Overall 4/5, because I got the extra DV Chord for only 3 bucks.

Does what I need

  • Summary: Purchased this camera to transfer my old 8mm tapes to DVD, and it does that just fine. Wish it had a remote to operate in player mode like my old (now missing) Sony camcorder, but I knew that when I bought it. Haven't even tried to use the camera or features yet, so I can't comment on them.

Sony Camcorder

Dejure, Amazon

  • Summary: This has proven easy to use, and it does a great job of capturing memories, including sound, and even does a good job in low light conditions. I bought an extended battery and recommend doing so with this or any other recorder. However, as others indicated, this unit doesn't seem greedy for power.

a great mini camcorder for it's time and still good

  • Summary: Sony's 2003 DCR-TRV22 miniDV (NTSC model) Handycam camcorder is obviously not a new camcorder, and does not produce HD quality video but among SD camcorders of it's time arguably one of the better ones for the amateur filmmaker. And I say this because there are many things to like about it.

great product for the money

  • Summary: I have a DCRTRV280 camera that I had some trouble with, so I wanted to replace it with a refurbished model. The 260 is the immediate predecessor of the 280. The units are very similar in all ways but two. The 280 has a record and stop button (and you can focus on this screen) on the mini picture screen; for the 260 you must use two other adjustments. Both cameras (for me) give excellent pictures, even if the lighting is not perfect.

  • Summary: This camcorder is a great deal for the price. It has excellent night shot capabilities as well as a built in light that works great outdoors. It's lightweight and fits nicely in the palm of your hand. Great buy!

  • Summary: well let me start off by saying i am not a family guy, i bought this camera purely for college, meaning alot of night shots, alot of abuse and other things related to college...of course being in college price was a big deal since i am always broke. i got this camera at a very good price ($275) and so far the camera is proved it's worthyness! i've taken it everywhere outdoors, indoors, sports events, race track use, etc etc.

Overall, pleasing.

  • Summary: First, the good stuff. Some people feel like the touchscreen lcd viewfinder is nothing more than a gimmick. Not me. With all menu buttons illuminated on the lcd screen you never have to worry about finding the right button in low light situations. The manual focus option combined with the touchscreen makes for a great setup- you just touch the part of the screen that shows the subject you want in focus and that's what it focuses on. Pretty handy.
