Quality without equal even amongst newer digital cameras.

  • Summary: This is the best video camera that Sony has ever produced. Even with the modern digital cameras you still can't beat the options and quality of the DCR TRV-730.

  • Summary: Still a great camera after all these years. Just the right editing capabilities. Really easy to use Likes: features: firewire/USB/fades/zoom/backwa​rd compatability of format/night vision/memory stik option Dislikes: Relatively bulky, upside-down tape access (time consuming when on a tripod) My complements to the Sony designers/engineers on a versatile and durable product.

Sony Handycam DCR TRV730

734henry, Ebay
2 May 2008
  • Summary: This is my third 730. The other two are still working. I use the cameras to film live music in niteclubs. Although not the newest technology these cameras are great workhorses. I use them handheld and they have been dropped-but they keep on ticking. Because I use them at low light levels the picture quality difference between them and an HDcam is virtually unnoticeable. I appreciate the manual iris, and focus adjustment.

Love this camera....

elaguila001, Ebay

  • Summary: This camera is everything I expected when I successfully won the auction. It is a joy to use and functions as Sony advertizes. It has many more options than a new camera costing as much or more ie. i/o jacks for headphones and mic and the audio capabilities are great. Another plus is the ability to convert older analog tapes to digital. It's just an all round fine machine.

Buy this if you have a reason

9341rick, Ebay

  • Summary: This is a great camera from 1998-2000. I bought one and had almost a decade of great service - but finally it broke so I needed to buy another to save my old D8 tapes to DVD. It would not bother me to get a camera that did not have a batery, ac adapter, or whatever - I have all that stuff. After that I may let my 7 year old use it as a learning camera and if he breaks it, thats OK.
