One of the best Standard Def cameras out there for the price!
31 October 2011
Summary: The Sony TRV950 delivers excellent quality that exceeds most standard definition cameras on the market. It has pretty much any feature you would want in a camcorder, and can be purchased in good condition for about 1/5 what it originally retailed for. I like to make skateboarding films and find this to be an excellent alternative to the more expensive VX series and delivers comparable picture quality with the right settings.
Summary: awesome camera, great for skateboarding, even better than cameras that are still in production. folks.. don't worry about the camera being 8 years old, as long as it's in good condition, it'll still be great. the camera has great sound, a massive led screen and an adjustable viewfinder which you can pull out so that a big battery doesn't block your way!
Summary: The camera was exactly as advertised, functionally and cosmetically. I have tested it at more than 400 line pairs H and V (800 lines) using a broadcast standard slide. Excellent camera and excellent price.
An older video camera that still gets the job done!

Summary: I first decided to buy this camera because I needed a good quality camera, on a small budget. From reviews I read, I found this to be an extraordinary camera. The original price for this camera was $2300.00, and I did not even pay an eighth of that. I have only had the camera for a day, and all I can do is smile. I bought this camera off of Ebay used, and I believe I got a good deal. The picture quality is great thus far, and I can't wait to buy a wide angle lens for it.
Summary: every now and then you come across a true bargain on ebay , this was that bargain for me .wonderful prosumer camcorder at a very low price .has all the bells and whistles you expect from a high end camcorder and the ability to get email and go on line just adds value to this item . best deal i ever had in my life .
Summary: This Camcorder was the best Prosumer model out there. The features are outstanding. 2 features I love the best that is hard to find on camcorders is the ablity to take an external source from the SVideo input and send it through the firewire to the computer, thus enabling you to be able to put analogue source onto the computer. The remote allows you to set the camera up on a tripod and then you can be in the picture and still control the camcorder.
Summary: I purchased this exact model back in 2003 because it was the best camera I could find on the market and I wasn't disappointed. It is a very reliable camera that out performs others I have used. The digital quality is superb and the camera doubles as a digital still camera using a chip which is included. You have the option of using either the color monitor or the viewfinder for taking video or photos, although using the monitor will use up more battery power.
Excerpt: "I took this camera to New Zealand for a 4-5 week touring holiday. Initially I was worried about its weight and durability (given its high cost) for travelling however I took it as hand luggage so no problems there. I took the supplied battery plus two larger (QM71) batteries. Providing you have a daily charge up spot then this is certainly overkill as battery consumption was good (providing you do not use the LCD screen constantly). Incidentally ...
Pros: Great colour accuracy, sharp images (with a tripod), good size LCD screen, zoom appears longer than spec, easy on the battery
