Summary: I bought one of these to transfer my old 8mm to DVD. What I didn't realize was that it made great video too, as it's a mega pixel camcorder. So the tapes are a bit bigger, and the camera is heavy.
Summary: I love this camcorder! I can get the close ups skinnaMAX can't touch. The zoom is top notch and the wide angle action catches the nips. I would recommend checking the manuel as it gives the down low you can't get just by trickin the gadget.
Summary: This is the first camcorder I have bought. I did a lot of research and finally decided to go with the Sony DCR-TRV730... and I am glad that I did. The picture is great!! Very crisp and clear DVD quality. It is very easy to use. Within 5 minutes, I had it setup and ready to use.
