Summary: I'm very pleased with this camcorder, night shot works great, sound it good and it easy to use. One draw back is it is a little heavy if your going to carry it around for a long period of time. I like this camcorder so much I'm looking to get a second one!
Summary: I recently purchased this to replace my old Canon Hi8 camcorder. I've been always the fan of Canon camcorder but this is very solid and high quality camcorder. I have lots of old 8mm & Hi8 tapes and this is a great camcorder to transfer them to DVD or upload to PC (since this camcorder is Digital8). Being able to digitally transfer your old 8mm & Hi8 tape to PC is a great function to have. This also has amazing Zoom and very good video quality.
Summary: Sony has a tendency to change model numbers about every 6 months. I bought my first TRV 120 about 5 years ago and use it extensively. It is an integral part of my edting suite and when I do a 2 camera "shoot" I would like to have both camcorders of the same model to reduce variations in color, brightness, etc. when switching between camcorders.
Reliable Digital Camcorder had Good Features for the Price

Summary: We got this camcorder back in 2000 and it is still serving us reliably. This has captured hundreds of hours worth of tape over the past 6 and a half years and it is still going strong. The digital 8 format has proven to be very useful because you could use regular 8mm tapes on it. There have been occassions when we were in foreign places that didn't have miniDV tapes, but did have 8mm or Hi-8 tapes for sale.
Summary: I am 12 years old. I got this camera for my birthday, it's a really good camera, great quality, great effects, the only problem is that it dosen't have good exposure control. When ever i put the exposure setting on automatic, and put the camera in a kind of sunny spot, the camera dosen't control the exposure. The picture looks a little to bright when you plug it in.
