Summary: The camera was and still is a high end camera. The actions are crisp, zoo is smooth, viewfinder screen is clear. One of the outstanding features is the ability to take 0 lux pictures. Experts tell me that the night capabilities exceed Sony's current technology.
Summary: Here are the reasons why I bought this video camera. Its a Sony,its built well, I am familiar with this type of camera and its easy to work with.I like the fact that it has a microphone jack,This is great if another mic is needed. I also that it has zero lux,which is better for lower light settings.To finish up this camera has really good picture quality and you can get alot of use out of this camera.
Summary: BOUGHT THIS NEW IN 2000 FOR $1600. I GOT IT WET IN 2006 IN THE OCEAN. NOW I FINALLY FOUND IT ON EBAY FOR $180. ITS THE BEST MINI DV CAMERA OUT THERE. GREAT LENSES FOR CLEAR CRISP PICTUR QUALITY. VIBRATION REDUCTION IS AWESOME AND THE BIG COLOR SCREEN. O LUX FEATURE IS FANTASTIC.
Summary: I chose this video camera because I already own one that I enjoy. It is starting to show signs of wear because I use it so much. I looked at newer models in retail stores, but none of the newer models that I could afford had all of the same features. I chose to purchase a gently used one, as backup, for the time when mine totally fails.
Summary: This is my second TRV20. The first was lost or stolen. I needed to transfer tapes to DVD's so I bought another. This little DCR Handycam is beautiful and comes with easy directions, though it may take some time to utilize all of them. The first one I had took beautiful stills or videos and we loved it.
Summary: i like this camera because it is really cool. now i can film stuff. i can film anything i want. this, that , whatever. i decided to buy it because now i can film stuff. i like this camera cause now i can film stuff. stuff...
Summary: I can't figure out why no one has not reviewed this great little camcorder/digital still camera up until now. This was Sony's first mega pixel consumer camcorder on the market. In 2000 they made three models with this chassis, the TRV6, TRV11 and this TRV20 which was Sony's high end single chip consumer camcorder that year.
Summary: I have owned this camera for over two years and have produced about 10 video productions with it, ranging from 3 minutes to 30. Overall, the camera works great. I got it on an open-box special at Circuit City, and I think it must have been dropped or something, because there are definitely loose connections somewhere. The viewfinder flickers and the firewire port is very sensitive to how far the cable is plugged into it.
Summary: Excellent camcorder with the latest features. Exceptional picture capturing capabilties with its world class lens. Very good handling features, auto stabilizer and controls are at the right location, very ergonomically designed. The wieght of the camera is also pretty decent to be handled by a single hand. One needs to be a little careful while using it during dim lights or less illumination.
Summary: Pros: Better than dvd quality video; still pictures are good. Video effects and usability of comera functions are good. Nightshot works well. Good construction, beautiful lcd, very compact. I did over six months research before purchasing this camera; nothing come close. Cons: Serial connection to upload pics to computer is painfully slow.
