Summary: This is a great little camcorder. It is great for video tranfer to DVD because we can play 8mm, Hi-8, and Digital 8 tapes from it. It has the S-Video out port so we can send out at Y/C resolution insteaad of just composite.

Summary: Zoom function with Steady Shot feature is superb. You don't have to use a tripod while using digital zoom. I have also used the Super Night Shot function in a dark room, and thats OK also. You can connect this item to your PC via USB port.
Summary: J'ai pris l'option TRV240E dv in/out (important......) -lecture des cassettes analogiques sans problème. Cela fait maintenant plus de 5 ans que je suis en possession de cette caméra, et elle me donne satisfaction.
