Summary: This was a purchase for my 9 year old son. This product is way more than I expected. I've owned Sony's in the past that survived toddlers and the sands of Afghanistan. The night shot was the most sought out feature along with size and both are perfect, easy to use and easy to hold.
Summary: While updating the historical files for our church, we found a presentation that was recorded with this older model camcorder. No one had the equipment to transfer the tapes to a disc so we found this item at a great price. It solved the problem and is still being used.
You can't go wrong with a Sony, they are very durable.

Summary: I recently broke my Sony miniDV camcorder, so I decided to purchase another one. I tried the malls, but found the prices to be very high. So I decided to purchase a used one here on Amazon, and found my same exact camera model on sale here. I didn't waste a minute in ordering it.
Summary: We ordered this camcorder because our old one was failing. We know the Sony name is very good in electronics so we decided to try this one. It arrived exactly as the seller said it would. It had all the accessories and was in very good condition. Very happy with this purchase.
Summary: I purchased the DCR-TRV22 as an additional camcorder to go along with my DCR-HC38 for paranormal research. This camcorder is just a little larger than my DCR-HC38 but also has a few more options on it including the memory stick slot for still photos.
Summary: I've shot with this same camera for 5 years and have never had any problems with it. I'm a film/video producer and I mostly use it to shoot stuff on the run and on the cheap. If you set up your camera properly you can get a nice picture and the touch screen menus are easy to use...
