Nearly all singing, all dancing

T. Searle "FanTC", Amazon
29 January 2005
  • Summary: The only time I have used a camcorder is when I borrowed a friend's old analogue 8mm, things have changed a bit sinse then: However, I was impressed at the compact size (given the features it contains). I was looking for specific features and found nearly all of them with the DCR-TRV355 :- 1) 8mm to play my old Hi8 tape. 2) DV in and out (my pc already has firewire). 3) USB - webcam capabilities. 4) Analogue in and out (other device connection).

Full-featured, high-quality camera

wisebuyguy, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought primarily as a means of recovering old 8mm/Hi8 recordings, this camera is so good that it has encouraged me to start shooting new footage again. Interfaces easily to my PC (USB or DV) and have been able to back-up 12 year old 8mm tapes to DVD with superb picture quality. Chunky, but not outrageously so, with the advantage over most purely Digital low-end camcorders that you get a large zoom capability and the use of relatively cheap Digital 8 tapes.

Lot of camera for such a little price!

jovac, Amazon
30 November 2003
  • Summary: After searching the shops without success for a dgital camera that would play my Hi8 recordings and 3 visits to the sony centre for the TRV355 model, only to be told each time that they were out of stock! I finally decided to order from Amazon. The camera was £112 cheaper than some shops had quoted and £152 cheaper than argos. The camera was ordered on the Saturday night and received Wednesday morning (a day earlier than was quoted - excellent service).

Sony DCR-TRV355 Digital8 Camcorder

Amazon Customer "ITNETWORKER", Amazon
13 September 2003
  • Summary: I had been concerned that I would not be able to save my old Hi8 tapes that had been taken over tha past 8 years when my old camcorder packed up. I trawled the net to find a product that could use my old tape format Hi8 but also give me the new digitised system Digital 8 of recording. Well, this camera does it and more! Within minutes of it's arrival I was linked up and downloading my video footage. [Pre order a firewire cable].

TRV355 - A Great All Round Camcorder

Richard Mills "GTB.photographic", Amazon
14 August 2003
  • Summary: This camcorder is simple to use and can be got up and running very quickly (although charging the battery for at least 8 hours first is recommended). The results are good, and once hooked up to a suitable PC, it is quick and easy to upload and edit your footage. This can then be saved to hard disk or returneed to the camcorder.

A good piece of kit ....

R. H. Trangmar "Trang", Amazon
9 July 2003
  • Summary: The camera is easy to use and has a good menu system. Although it is a little chunky, I havn't found this a problem. The advantage of the TRV355 over the similar but cheaper models is the ability to use external microphones; this camera picks up a lot of wind noise and you can cut this out with a blank jackplug. I wasn't fussed about the memory stick option as I have a good digital still camera. Overall good value.

The Sony TRV355

J. Mohan, Amazon
12 June 2003
  • Summary: If, like me, you need a camcorder that will play your old analogue 8mm and Hi8 while making new recording in a digital format this may be the camcorder for you. If that is not a must have feature I expect some of the other camcorders will be better and/or cheaper. The manual is a bit confusing covering 9 different Sony Handycam models in both English and French on the same page. This comment will naturally also apply to other models in the Sony Handycam range.

No aparenta ser tan resistente

generoso9966, Ciao
29 September 2004
  • Excerpt: Cuando en la familia se decidió por la compra de una cámara de video lo primero que pensé era que sería un gasto que reportaría pocas contraprestaciones porque para usarla durante unos días al año y tenerla el resto del tiempo guardada no merecería la pena hacer tal inversión. La familia insistió y al final no tuve más remedio que comprarla.
  • Pros: Es muy dura
  • Cons: el precio
